The app is very fluid, stable and easy to use, and scanning your photos is quick enough. Once they’ve been processed, you can edit them and share them on your social networks or with friends and family. Reimagine is ideal for anyone who wants to improve the quality or bring to life old photos while creating a family tree, or to share memories at an important family event.

With the rise of artificial intelligence and digitalization, preserving and reviving your precious moments is proving easier. Reimagine from MyHeritage lets you bring your old photos back to life. But does it really live up to its promise? We tested this revolutionary feature of MyHeritage and here’s our feedback and opinion.

Reimagine by MyHeritage DNA: a tool to bring old photos back to life


Reimagine is an exciting initiative from MyHeritage, a leading genealogy company. Available on iOS and Android, this mobile app incorporates advanced artificial intelligence to improve the quality of your old photos.

Reimagine also lets you color and restore old photos.

One of Reimagine’s flagship features is the multipage scanner. It is used to quickly scan entire pages of a photo album. This technology automatically detects and crops each photo, saving precious time.

But the app doesn’t just digitize. It brings your memories back to life, transforming them into digital treasures for future generations.

Our opinion after using the Reimagine mobile app

✅ We think Reimagine is a real innovation in the field of photo retouching. This tool offers an unparalleled opportunity to reconnect with our origins. More than simply contemplating old photos, it invites us to rediscover them, to experience them from a renewed and deeply touching angle.

Reviewing old wedding photos of my grandparents in color and digitized with greatly improved sharpness, allowed me to rediscover my forefathers in a new light.

However, the app’s price tag could be a hindrance to universal access.
