A little bit more about our 35mm negative scanning Service

35mm negative film for scanning

We scan all negative and positive film up to a size of 4.5cm x 9cm.  If you have large format film or transparencies, we do scan these. We would need to know the size and condition before giving a scanning price for these. Please contact us for a price for any film larger than 4.5cm x 9cm, Black and white and colour, positive or negative film, we have you covered!

All film is scanned at a high quality dpi resolution and is dependant upon the size of the film. For example, 35mm negatives are scanned at 3200dpi and Medium Format at 2200dpi. These settings give the best scan results for archiving, sharing, printing and viewing on TVs and computers.

Prices are per frame, e.g. a 6 frame strip of negatives is £0.30 x 6.

Useful Tips And Often Asked Questions

How long will it take to scan my negatives?

We would aim to complete an order within 7 days or sooner. If there are very large numbers, say in the several hundreds, it might take us longer. We would give you an indication of timescales once we have received your order - or before if you want to get in touch with us 

I'd like my negative film scanned as TIFF. Can you do this?

Very happy to! just let us know either on the oder form in 'Special Comments' section or contact us

I'd like my negatives scanned in the order thet are sent, is this possible?

Yes! We will always try to scan everything in the order that they are sent. Occasionally a slip up may occur but this can easily be resolved on your computer.

Do you clean my negatives & film before scanning?

Negatives are notorious for attracting and showing dust spots. We lightly brush each negative strip with an anti-static brush and blow  with compressed air. We can provide heavier cleaning for really dirty slides but unfortunately we would need to apply an additional charge based upon how bad the negatives are.

Do you use digital ice?

No. We used to use it but found it can often badly distort things such as eyes  and nostrils. It also softens an image removing detail such as buttons on a coat, belt buckles, etc. Our view is it is better to see a few small specks of dust than to blur or distort an photo. We  also check all scans in Photoshop & remove any obvious dust spots missed in our pre-scanning cleaning.

Do you keep a copy of my negative scans?

Yes, we keep a digital backup of both the original scans and the enhanced scans. We hold on to these for 28 days after payment and then they are deleted completely from our systems. 

Can you dispose of my original negatives if i don't want them back?

We prefer not to, but we will if this is what you require. We use a local secure shredding company and there is a charge depending upon the size and weight. You would need to let us know if this is what you required.

Do you ever use a customers scans on your website or for anything else?

No. We will never use any customers images. They are the customers property, besides which, we would be infringing copyright laws.

do i need to count my negatives before sending?

No you don't. We only need an estimate of numbers as we will count each scan and invoice accordingly at the end of the project.

Can you put my negative film scans into named folders?

Yes we can. Just make sure your negatives are in separate packets or bundles and add a title for the folder name.  

Do you crop and rotate my negative scans or do I have to do it when I get the scans back?

We crop and rotate all your negatives so you can view properly . We'd love to guarantee 100% accuracy....but very occasionally, we may not be able to determine the correct oreintation. Should this happen, you can easily rotate on your computer.

I think some of my negatives maybe a little risqué, is this a problem?

Don't worry - we are all adults here! We will scan  risqué negatives. We will not, however, scan anything that is illegal.

I have a rush order for my Negatives, can you help?

Absolutely, if you are in a hurry and need a quick turnaround, we can offer an Express service for a small premium. Just contact us if you need this service.
