As you probably know, we acquired 1000memories – maker of the popular Shoebox photo-scanning app – in late 2012. Since then we’ve integrated our teams and today we’re taking a big step towards integrating our products.
We’re excited to introduce Shoebox from Ancestry.com – a brand new version of the Shoebox mobile scanner that allows you to upload photos directly to your family tree on Ancestry.com. There has never been a simpler, faster, and more beautiful way to scan your old photos.
Shoebox puts a powerful photo-scanner in your pocket. Just take a picture of an old paper photo with your iPhone or Android camera, and our edge detection and perspective-correction technology will make sure that your scans turn out beautifully.
What You’ll Find on ShoeBox 3.0
You can now use your Ancestry.com credentials to log into Shoebox. You can also sign up for a free account through the app.
Tag family members
Our face detection tells you when it spots a person so you can tag them in your photo. Tag people in your family trees and your photos will automatically upload to Ancestry.com.
Simpler, faster, and more beautiful
We’ve totally overhauled our design to make it cleaner and more intuitive. We’ve made your photos larger and faster than ever.
Here you will find informational, and sometimes fun, posts from the folks behind the scenes here at Ancestry.com. We hope you’ll notice just how passionate we are about family history and about the products we’re building to help connect families over distance and time.Visit Ancestry.com
