I have written about the QromaScan device several times. Start at https://tinyurl.com/yc8oma9c to see my earlier articles about QromaScan. Now a major new software upgrade is available for this product that converts your iPhone into a scanner.
QromaScan Version 3.1 has the following new features and improvements:
- MultiPage TIFF Support for BackScan — Previously, when you scanned the back of your photos, they were flippable in the Gallery, but on disk were two separate files that needed to be moved together when you were organizing your photos. v3.1 supports a feature of the TIFF Standard called MultiPage TIFF, where we can place the front and back of the image into the same image file. This file is still a standard TIFF file and has the same metadata standards as Single TIFF and JPG files, but it now makes it much easier to keep your family history together.
- Custom Scan Templates — You can now adjust the size and position of your crop box in any Scan Template and store it for later use. This is useful if your iPhone and photos are in the right location, but the crop box isn’t always directly over the image. You can now set it once, and then use it anytime that print size is selected.
- New DatePicker — Our old DatePicker in the Metadata editor forced you to tap repeatedly to move the years backwards. The new DatePicker uses Natural Language dates to make it much easier to set a new date.
- Full Screen support for iPhone X,Xs,Xs Max & Xr — Looks like the notch is here to stay, so if you have a new iPhone, we now fully support the new screen sizes.
The new MultiPage TIFF feature can make it much easier to pass along your important family history in a contemporary way.
