Photo and Slide Scanning
Photos and slides don’t last forever. They lose their original quality each year they're left in the attic or basement, closet or drawer. Move your photos & slides to digital files and:
- Preserve the Images
- Document History
- Leave a Legacy
- Clear the Clutter
- Enjoy the Memories
Scanning Services for:
Slides and Photos to Digital Files
Slides and Photos to Video Slideshows
We work with all slide sizes 35mm, 126mm, 110mm and 127mm also know as the super slide. We clean and scan each with a professional automated scanner at 2100 to 4200 dpi depending on the condition of the image and the desired end product. We will ask a few questions to understand the end purpose you have in mind to build the right file type and size.
The boxes to the right in the picture above contained 6000 slides that were scanned. The 3 stacked boxes on the right are the end storage as the slides are returned to you, indexed and in an archival safe box for easy compact storage if you choose to keep them. The digital photo album in the front contains contact sheets for easy reference and the discs with the digital files.
We scan all photos at 300 to 600 dpi depending on the desired end result. Options are a digital archive file JPEG or TIFF for historical reference and preservation, prints, emailing or for a DVD video slideshow. We will discuss your options for the best end result.We also work with framed artwork and oversized peices.
