Quality will be pretty bad, images will be distorted. Just buy a proper flatbed scanner and use a photo scanner tool like

Or is this one of those stupid apps that only work on phones?

By: Ron Heard Ron Heard Thu, 09 Jan 2014 21:05:15 +0000 To add to Kim Mark’s question, I have uploaded several photos since learning about “ShoeBox.” These photos, however, only appear on my IPad. They don’t appear on either my Dell Laptop in either FTM2014 or Dell Laptop Windows 8!?

How do I make this happen?

Next, is there an owner/operator manual I can read to answer a host of these questions such as Kim’s request to delete certain photos, and download a particular photo as the primary?!?

I’m only halfway to where I really want to be with this app, but I like what I see so far!

It is too fragile to attempt to remove from the frame and besides that too large for most flat-bed scanners. How well does this app scan framed photos? All of my attempts to capture it with my digital camera has given poor results, mostly flash and/or lighting related.

By: George Russell George Russell Fri, 11 Oct 2013 00:05:36 +0000 I use Shoebox on my iPad. I’m getting a lot of images associated with it and would like to delete them from my iPad but leave them on and my FTM. Is this possible or do I need to leave those images on the iPad forever?

Thanks, George

By: Kimberly Mark Kimberly Mark Tue, 01 Oct 2013 23:00:56 +0000 I just downloaded the shoebox app to my I-phone 4.
I had no problem adding pictures off my camera roll on my phone.
What I want to know is when you scan a picture and you don’t like it how do you delete it?
I blurred a picture and I could not figure out how to redo it.

Recently I bought Samsung Galaxy Pocket cell phone with Android version 2.3.6.

On Shoebox app page on GooglePlay it says that app requires Android version 2.3 and up (mine is up – 2.3.6). It also says

This app is incompatible with your device.

I don’t know why, previously I downloaded and installed Ancestry app and it works just fine for me.

Sincerely yours,
