I think it would have been a really good clue had you gone with "sidekick" rather than "robin" - that's one layer of indirection too many, i.e. the literal should have one degree of separation from the answer.

* I can NOT take the photos out of the albums ("scan them stackwise" is not an option)
* I bought a camera tripod and thought about camera-copying them
Can you recommend me a good app that is capable of correcting those photos? I will use my Galaxy S10e, and the camera is more than good enough, but I heard of apps the can "document copy" things, so they correct rotation and bending. When you make a photo of a sheet of paper, it looks like a scanned document and not like a photo of a document.
I tried to search a bit but couldn't find "the one".
It's a summer project for me, I have to digitalize about 2000 photos, my daughter will help me, and I have no fear to do some manual correcting or resizing on 2k files. I have time over the entire August (YES I have a loooooooong vacation this year! You are allowed to be envious )
Use a scanner?
Apps that I have used for these purposes do turn the photo into a scanned copy (e.g. CamScanner), and the free version adds a watermark on the pictures.
To have a good quality scan you'll also need the help of photoshop.
Ok. I use a flatbed scanner (it can do slides as well using an adapter).
Just don't look at the scanning light when the lid is open, as it will need to be when scanning photos still in albums. I just hold the album in place, look away from it and click the button.
This would probably be a lot quicker than setting up for each photo from a camera - although the scanning takes longer you will get a better result in my opinion with no fear of reflections or light interference corrupting the image. I have done hundreds like this myself - it's still on-going, my wife is a shutterbug!
