Scanning albums is not an easy task, since the extraction of actual photographs within scans is usually very tedious.
This tool allows you to scan as much as you can fit into your scanner and then semi-automatedly extract the contained photographs.
The tool also allows to extract scans of multiple single photographs (i.e. without album)
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
