Good afternoon

Chris would it be possible for you to explain how I can take photo scan of a photo that is already in my album. If I select the photo I cannot seem to work out how to get to the photo scanner which I know is in utilities to do the job.

I can operate it when I take a new photo

By the way my camera is a Pixel3 gl

I’m not sure if I’m confused here, or you’re confused. But, let me start with the fact that Photo Scan is an app that lets you digitize a paper photo. Here’s my video on it: 631.GP-PhotoScan anti-glare

Is this what you’re trying to do?

Maybe you’re trying to get back in to the PhotoScan editing/cropping once you’ve already scanned a print? Then, yeah, that only works immediately after doing the scan. Once you’re done, the resulting photo is just a .jpg like every other photo.

Oh gosh I’m a duffer. that is exactly what I was doing. 

I had the whim to go over some old photos that I had in my album, to cut the glare, I can see it should have been done at the time I took them. 

Thanks for the answer.  I guess I was not hearing that when you taught it. I will certainly listen again

Thank goodness Chris you are a woman, I’m certain no man could understand a woman’s twisted logic, or mine a leastLaugh
