Google Drive Secure Cloud Storage - ScanCafe - Services

Save your memories to Google Drive.

Google Drive Banner

Our integration with Google Drive gives you the option to safely backup your scans and access them from anywhere and on any computer, iOS or Android device.

Your digital content, safe forever

Google Drive's strength lies in real-time online file collaboration through Web apps. The service also has a downloadable app for local file-syncing. Another perk is that files you create in Google Drive, as opposed to those you upload, don't count toward your already-generous, free 15GB storage allotment. For collaborative projects, it's the best package.

Available on: Windows, Mac, Web, Chrome, Android, iOS.

From anywhere, on any device

With our integration with Google Drive you can now access your scanned images from your smartphone, tablet or computer wherever you are. Apps are available on multiple platforms enabling you to access, manage and share your photos.

When your scanned photos are transferred to Google Drive they are automatically integrated in your Google+ Photo profile and become part of your Google ecosystem. You can manage your photo library using albums and stories, as well take advantage of the all of the Google+ features include face recognition and photo editing.

Once you are granted access to your account, the magic will happen. Within a few minutes or hours, based on the size of your order, your images will be uploaded into your account in a folder called [ScanCafe Cloud Drive]. Your scanned images will be organized in your Google Drive account in exactly the same way as in your ScanCafe account. Once the process is complete you will receive an email.

  • Great Prices for Photo Scanning

    comparisonEven though our quality is the best in the industry, our prices are far below comparable services.

  • Just Say No to Auto-Feeding

    Just Say No to Auto-Feed ScanningSome services will run your prints through an auto-fed scanner, which works like an office photocopier. As the machines heat up, your photos get stickier and can jam, which mangles them. By contrast, ScanCafe handles your prints manually.

  • Our Customers

    When I got my DVD back with the photos, I could not believe the quality of the scans! It was like I was transported back in time....It was truly an emotional experience reliving those photos on my computer with such startling clarity and quality.

    - Matthew C., Columbus, GA (Dec 2007)

    The images I received were amazing quality - just like the original pictures...I loved that ScanCafe had great prices and that I could choose which images to purchase after they had scanned them all - what a deal!

    - Connie S.,Toccoa, GA (August 2008)

    I am a full time professional photographer for 17 years. I recently sent an equal amount of slides to both ScanCafe, and a major USA competitor. The scans came back from Scan Cafe, and every single one of them was 100% perfect. 20% of the scans from the competitor were completely unusable, and 50% of them required adjusting in Photoshop. And to make it even better, Scan Cafe was one third the price of the competitor...
