Scan Film Using Your Phone with Helmut

Photographer and software developer Kostas Rutkauskas has launched a new mobile app called Helmut. Designed for Android, Helmut is a simple app that lets you scan, crop, and then edit the scanned photos with basic tools (e.g. brightness/contrast, levels, color balance, hue/saturation, unsharp mask).

Features & Instructions
1. Place and press a negative uniformly on whatever you like.
2. Launch Helmut and capture.
3. Crop the frame.
4. Tweak the scan with tools you're used to work with while scanning:
  • Brightness/Contrast.
  • Levels (General, and all 3 RGB).
  • Color Balance.
  • Hue/Saturation/Lightness.
  • Unsharp Mask.
5. Flip, rotate, and share directly from the app: Dropbox, Facebook, Flickr, and EyeEm. You can always open the resulting scan in a native Gallery and share elsewhere from there.

Here are some app screenshots:

If you’d like to give Helmut a shot, it’s now available as a free download over in the Google Play store.
