QromaScan: the World’s Smartest Photo Scanner

Designed with simplicity in mind, the QromaScan Lightbox and the QromaScan iOS app work together to form the world’s smartest photo scanner.

Tell it the date, place and people in your photos, and QromaScan tags your photos as it scans. You’ll end up with high quality searchable images that will organize themselves whenever you import them into your photo organization software. When you are done, it folds right back up like a book in a second.

QromaScan makes scanning and organizing your photos fast and easy.

They even have a slide scanner! Unfortunately QromaScan is only available for iOS devices.
