How your Photos, Negatives and Slides are scanned

Photos

  • Photos are scanned at 300 dpi/ppi, 600 dpi/ppi or higher. We do recommend the smaller the photo the larger the resolution which will allow the small photo to be printed at 4x6" or higher without losing image quality. You can choose a higher resolution if needed.

  • Photos are cleaned with compressed air before scanning.

  • Minor blemish and dust removal.

  • Cropping the photo ensuring no unwanted edges.

  • Brightness and contrast if required will be corrected to improve the image.

  • For photos stored in old photo albums we do not remove the photo from the adhesive backboard but scan the photo without the plastic protective cover. This way there is no damage to the old photo by trying to remove it.

  • Optional Extras - Each scanned image can be colour enhanced.

Photos in Photo Albums

If you have photos in photo albums that you would prefer not to remove from the photo albums as they may be brittle or they may tear, we can in most cases scan those photos from the photo album. Check our pricing for this service.


Negatives and Slides

  • Negatives and Slides are scanned at 2400 dpi, 3200 dpi, 4800 dpi or higher. The higher the resolution the larger the print size.

  • All negatives & slides are cleaned with compressed air before scanning.

  • Minor blemish and dust removal.

  • Your image files are numbered sequentially, Image 001.jpg Image 002.jpg etc. We can place images into named folders which will make it easier for you to find certain images.

  • Cropping the negative or slide ensuring no unwanted edges.

  • Orientation (portrait or landscape) of the negative and slide is correct and ensuring wherever possible the slide is not backwards e.g. names of buildings are not backwards etc.

  • Brightness and contrast if required will be corrected to improve the image.

  • Optional Extras - Each scanned image can be colour enhanced.
