Ed: I like this app, to do this any other way would require 5-10 minutes per photo of cropping, editing, rotating, saving, transferring off your phone onto a desktop etc, in my case I just dont have the time and it wouldn’t get done.

The app takes a photo, aligns/rotates it and then crops and saves it in a few seconds. Great idea.

What problem are you solving?
Scanning a photo with a traditional scanner is time consuming; capturing photos with your phone’s camera is a clumsy process; sharing a photo requires to use an external app! Heirloom integrates photo scanning, image editing and photo sharing all in one bringing your memories back to life.
What is your solution?
Heirloom enables users to preserve print photos in a single tap, with the help of your smartphone camera, by transforming them into beautiful digital images. Heirloom automatically finds the edges of the photo, corrects the perspective and does a mild color enhancement, without having to remove it from its album. Photos can then be shared in private groups within Heirloom or externally on social networks.Heirloom is available for free on iOS, Android and Web.
Why is this a great opportunity?
Fast, beautiful photo scanning and sharing.
Target Market
Anyone who treasures and owns paper photographs. More seriously: moms and dads 45+, millennial women 25-35, brides, photography bloggers, genealogists.
