Your Photos & Stories

Together Forever

Metadata tags are the perfect digital replacement for what used to be written on the back of our photos. It's powerful, but tagging photos the traditional way can be as much fun doing your taxes and not doing it means that the photo and it’s story can be separated.

QromaScan v3 introduces a new way to tag photos called Natural Language Tagging, and instead of worrying about what to tag and how to tag it, you just describe your own photos your own way.

Natural Language Tagging

In this example, the user said "This is my mom and sister at the Eiffel Tower in the spring of 1974." QromaScan automatically created metadata tags for date, place and people.

QromaScan detects important details from the description, including dates, exact locations and even the full names of the people in the photos and automatically generates the key metadata tags.

With the metadata now embedded inside the file, you can find any photo with just a few keystrokes, or pass along a great backstory for future generations. Wherever the photo goes, the story goes with it.


Slide in, slide out.


QromaScan is designed for speed and precision. Your iPhone sits atop the LightBox, where the camera sensor is in perfect alignment with back edge of the box. Simply slide your photo along the back wall until it's inside the one screen crop box, say the word "Capture" and you get a well cropped, high quality image in seconds.

  • Flip for It!

    QromaScan lets you scan the back of your photos and makes them 'flippable' on your iPhone, and preserves your memories

  • Tree Friendly

    Import your family tree through a GEDCOM file, and easily tag the relatives in your photos using voice recognition.

  • Find it Fast

    Forget about scrolling to find photos. Type the first letters of a person or place, and BAM!, there it is.

  • Import Untagged Photos

    Love QromaScan, but also have a bunch of untagged photos on your computer? Import them into QromaScan, then tag them using our voice recognition tagging system.

  • Simultaneous TIFF + JPEG Capture

    Capture in TIFF, JPG or both simultaneously. TIFF files use the same photo metadata as JPEG and contain lossless color information so you can migrate your images to next generation formats without generation loss.

  • In App Metadata Editor

    Sometimes you don’t know the exact date, place, or even a person in a photo. QromaScan’s built in Metadata Editor makes it easy to fine tune the details later.

  • Location Location Location

    Ever wonder where a photo was taken? Flip up on any photo’s metadata and see right where it was taken, or fine tune the location by dragging to the street address.

  • Built in Photo Editor

    No need to run to your computer to add finishing touches to your scans. QromaScan’s built in photo editor handles most cropping and other correcting tasks with a few swipes.

  • Multi Device Support

    With integrated iCloud support, scan your photos on your iPhone, then view and edit them on your larger iPad

  • Cloud Sync Enabled

    QromaScan supports either iCloud Drive or Dropbox, so you can see your images on your computer almost instantly. Edit the images with your favorite image editor on your computer, and the changes come right back to QromaScan.


... or ask your own.

What is the largest size image you can scan inside the LightBox?

The LightBox supports images up to 6 x 8 inches. The QromaScan Import feature supports the scanning and cropping of larger images outside the LightBox.

What print resolution (DPI) does QromaScan support?

It is dependent on the type of iPhone you are using. For example, with an iPhone 7, a 3.5 x 5 inch images scans to 421 DPI. As a general rule, any images you scan with QromaScan should print back out nicely at up to twice their original size.

What type of iPhones does QromaScan support?

QromaScan works with iPhone 5 or iPod Touch 5 or greater. If you enabled iCloud Drive support, you can also use QromaScan on an iPad to edit metadata and view your images.

What is the QromaScan USB Adapter?

The QromaScan USB Adapter is a handy optional cable that allows you to power the LightBox with any USB port, such as a nearby computer, an iPhone charger or a rechargeable USB power bank. The cable contains a special ‘step up’ converter that transforms 5 volt USB power into 12 volts suitable for powering both the LightBox and the SlideBox. It is included with the QromaScan Complete Bundle.

What if my photos have a curl to them?

The optional QromaScan StayFlat adapter is an acrylic sheet with a custom lip that can help keep curly images perfectly flat during the scanning process. It is included with the QromaScan Complete Bundle.
