MyHeritage is happy to announce a new partnership with 1000memories, the creators of ShoeBox, a free mobile app for iOS and Android.
This unique app turns your smartphone into a powerful photo scanner, with automatic edge detection and perspective correction technology to ensure that the paper photographs you scan turn out beautifully.MyHeritage.com goes on to explain how the new partnership will work.
Scanned photos will be automatically uploaded to your own free account on 1000memories.com, which can be defined as private or public according to your preference. At a later phase, your images will be automatically transferred to your MyHeritage family site.Aggregation of resources seems to be the wave of the future in the larger websites.
