Bulk transfer photos from Pic Scanner Gold to computer

How to save scanned photos to computer?

The iOS photo scanner apps Pic Scanner Gold and Pic Scanner apps provide many ways to share photos on social media or save to cloud and photo apps. These are great when you need to post a few photos on Facebook, or upload 40-50 photos to Dropbox. With Pic Scanner Gold, you can also use Airdrop or iCloud uploads (In export options, tap ‘Show all’, then select from the expanded list of options).

But if you need to bulk transfer photos – and you have hundreds, or thousands of pictures – this can take a long time. In this post, we will show you an easy alternative.

Bulk transfer photos to computer

This shortcut will save ALL photos from Pic Scanner Gold’s Gallery (or Pic Scanner’s Cropped) screen on your computer.

  • Connect iPhone or iPad to computer via USB cable. Launch iTunes on computer, and select your device [See (1) below].

  • Click File Sharing in iTunes sidebar on the left [(2) above]. The right pane will show all the apps whose data is backed up [(3) above].
  • Click on Pic Scanner Gold or Pic Scanner [(4) above]. Further right side will show some folders and files e.g. original_images, splitted_images, etc. Select splitted_images FOLDER, and drag it onto computer’s desktop. This folder will have all the photos you have on your Gallery (Pic Scanner Gold) or Cropped (Pic Scanner) screens.
  • Close iTunes and disconnect your device from the computer. On computer desktop, rename the folder from splitted_image to whatever you want.
¬†Photos scanned with our apps are named according to the convention: spl_32_YYYYMMddHHmmss_photoCount.jpg (where YYYYMMddHHmmss is the date and time of scanning). To bulk rename them with another prefix e.g. 1970s Album is very easy. On Mac: Open the folder that you transferred with the above procedure > Select all the photos > Right click > Rename ‘x’ items > in ‘Find’ box, type the string of characters that’s common to all the files (This may be spl_32_YYYYMMDD if you scanned all the photos on the same date, or spl_32_YYYYMM if you scanned them all in the same month) > In ‘Replace with’ box, type your desired prefix > Click ‘Replace’.
