Best Photo Album Scanning Service
Our photo album scanning service is something that most photo scanning services don't offer. Why? Because it is a service that takes time, patience and some pretty good equipment along with skill!
Let us scan your photos in situ or remove them for you, you decide. Our services below offer flexible scanning options. Don't see what you want? No problem, just message or call us to discuss.
Scan & Crop £0.50p per photo
Each photo within an album is scanned cropped and enhanced individually. Customers get a scanned file for every photo in the album. This is a life saver for photos that are glued or stuck into albums where they are just too fragile to remove.
Page Scan - £0.80p a page side
Each album page side is scanned & cropped to capture everything on the page. This is a great option for albums with any captions or notes, or for people who simply want a full copy without going to the expense of having each photo individually cropped.
Removal & Scan - £0.35p per photo
If your photos can be removed from the photo album(s) but you would rather we did this for you - no problem! Send your albums to us and we will remove the photos & scan them. We don't replace photos in the album(s) but bundle them by album and returned.
How Our Process Works
We scan, fix colour & crop, so your scan looks great. Scans are saved to folders - see FAQ's about folders. We email an invoice with costs the moment completed. Upon payment, photos are returned with your choose of disk, USB or a download.
You now have your album photos scanned into digital format & saved for the future. It is now easy to view your images whenever you wish on your computer or TV. Now, all that is left is for you to enjoy & maybe share with family and friends.

Do I have to count all of the photographs that I want scanning?
No, not at all! Don't worry, just give us an estimation and we will finalise the count when we scan the photos.
I need my photos scanning in order, can you do this?
Yes we do. We will scan photos in the order that they are sent.
Can you put my photo scans into individual folders?
Yes we can. Simply put your photos into named bundles, e.g. in an envelope with the file name written on it. Please note, we reserve the right to add a small additional charge if there are numerous files with a number containing less than 25 photos.
How long will my photo scanning order take?
Turnaround times will depend upon the size of the order. We do aim to complete photo scanning orders within 3 to 5 business days from receipt. This may vary depending upon the volume of orders at the time, also busy times like Christmas. We will always advise customers of lead times.
What is DPI & why do you scan at 600 dpi as a standard?
DPI or dots per inch determines the clarity, quality and resolution of your scanned photograph.
Will you crop the white borders off my old photos that have them?
Our standard crop is to the edge of the scanned photo. If you want white borders cropping back so only the photo image shows, no problem. Just let us know in the order form special instructions and where applicable we will crop off at a small additional charge of only 3p per image.
Where do I send my Photos for scanning when I have packaged them up?
We send you our address once you have placed an order. We don't put our address on the website only because we prefer to know when a customer is sending their photos to us and when we should expect them. Therefore we ask for either a phone call, email, or order on line to let us know your order is coming. We let you know the moment your photos have arrived.
Can you scan photos that have a copyright, e.g. wedding photos, school photos etc, taken by a professional photographer.
Yes we can if you have the photographers permission. If you send copyright photos, we will assume you have permission to have them scanned.
