With our photo album scanning service, we use A3 size commercial  scanners. Great quality, scans achieved.....dependant, of course, on the quality of the photos in the first place! We offer flexible options because like life, one size doesn't fit all!

  • Everything on each page, including all writing is captured

  • Don't want all photos scanned? Simply highlight  photos NOT to scan e.g. post-it on photo

Is 300 DPI Resolution good enough?

Good question! Dots per inch (dpi) is a tricky one and very much a personal choice. Photographs normally have 300 dots per inch to make up the image.
Scan at 300 dpi & we replicate an original printed photo in terms of dpi and size if you needed to print. A 600 dpi scan has 600 dots per inch. Twice the size of the original photo. Great if you ever want to print a copy larger than the original photo album page size BUT the

scanning process takes 3 times longer & would be 3 times more expensive than at 300 dpi.

300 DPI in Summary & Price:

Are you intending to save & view your digitised photos on a computer, TV, mobile device?  300 dpi should be more than adequate.

  •  £0.90  per full page side - all photos and any writing
  •  £0.45  each photo scanned and cropped individually e.g. 6 photos on page each scanned in situ individually

Preparing Your Photo Albums For Sending

Just a few tips that will help us to get the best digital scans of your photograph:  

What we appreciate!
  • Albums or scrapbooks with clear titles or numbering for naming digitised folders 
  • All photos secured in place and not loose
  • Photos or pages that you DON'T want scanning, clearly identified 
What we can’t scan 
  • Slip in plastic pocket albums. We recommend removing these before sending & using our loose photo scanning service 
  • Unfortunately we cannot accept Copyright material unless permission obtained from the owner
  • Loose photos falling out of pages.  If we need to remount photos, this will incur a 10p additional charge per photo
