Those shoe boxes and albums of old Polaroids you have stored away? Well now you can digitize all of them with ease thanks to Google.

The team behind Google Photos today unveiled its latest endeavor: PhotoScan. The highlight of a number of new improvements to Google Photos, PhotoScan essentially acts as a modern day scanner and employs your device’s built-in camera to take a “picture of a picture” and store it digitally. Best of all, though? The app automatically eliminates any glare that your lights cast on the photos before saving the scans to your camera roll. Once saved, you can then upload your old photos to Google Photos or any other cloud service of your choice.

See it in action above and put it to the test now, free of charge, for both iOS and Android.
