What We Scan

Slides, negatives, prints and everything in between. We'll digitize them once, the right way, so you never have to do it again.

  • Standard Slide
    Standard Slide

    Standard slides have a frame that is roughly 1.5 inches wide and 1 inch tall, typically mounted in cardboard which is a 2 by 2 inch square.

  • 35mm Negatives
    35mm Negatives

    35mm negative film was the most used film format of the analog era. Typically cut into strips of 4-6 frames, with an equal frame size to slides.

  • Photo Print
    Photo Print

    The ubiquitous printed photo. We scan anything up to about 14 x 20 inches. Color and detail are good, though often below that of film.

Other Formats, Albums, Etc.

We scan other formats as well (medium format is one). And we are up front about charges for extra work such as pulling prints from albums or scanning selected frames from a negative strip. You will find these in our order estimation tool, and we encourage you to write or call if anything is unclear.

Why We're The Best

There are many different ways to digitize photos. The trick is to find that sweet spot between a long, expensive process and a shorter process that sacrifices on quality. Simply put, we did our homework.

Each image is checked for proper focus and exposure. Scanning the same image twice is not uncommon.

Top of The Class

We’ve tested every machine, and have done the comparisons. We use scanners that produce the best looking images possible in this price range, and back it up with great service. Our system and staff ensure every request is met and communication is made with honesty and respect. Our culture is to focus on the relationship with the client as much as the digitization process itself. Just ask the internet!

Service Options

We offer different resolutions and levels of service to meet the different needs of our clients. We also have a handy tool on our estimation page to help you determine which options may suit you best.

Standard and Full Resolution

Standard Resolution extracts most of the useful detail from the image. Scans from slides and negatives can be printed over 5×7, and scans from prints can be reprinted at their original size. Full Resolution, on the other hand, will get every useful detail from the image and the scans will be future-proofed to display maximum fidelity on the next generation of digital displays such as 4K. The example image shown of grass and the front of a car is from a photo print scan and zoomed in heavily to show the difference between the two resolutions. Keep in mind you will not usually zoom this far into the image and the differences are more subtle for most uses.

Service Levels

  • Raw

    Raw service means we get the best possible scan from your photo, and only organize and rename them. You will need to rotate, crop out unwanted borders, and adjust color or contrast.

  • Direct

    Direct service adds rotation and hand cropping of unwanted borders from your digital images. Color and contrast adjustments are not made, so faded images still appear faded.

  • Complete

    Complete service adds hand adjustments to color and contrast. Faded images tend to have their original look restored, and under or overexposed images are improved.

Digital Output

Digital images are output as data discs or drives. Small orders can be sent via email or FTP, and all files are backed up on our servers for 30 days.

File Types

  • JPEG
    JPEG

    JPEG (or JPG) file for near-lossless quality at a small file size for easy backup and sharing.

  • TIFF
    TIFF

    TIFF file for absolutely lossless backup, but at a very large file size (and additional cost).

Output Types

  • USB Drive
    USB Drive

    A small thumb-sized or wallet-sized drive for portable digital storage and transfer of your data.

  • CD/DVD/Blu-Ray (Data or Audio/Video)
    CD/DVD/Blu-Ray (Data or Audio/Video)

    Data files can be burned to disc, or burned as an audio CD or video DVD/Blu-Ray for set-top players.
