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!
We offer this service because we know a lot of people don't want to, or cannot remove photos from their albums.
So, don't delay, we can capture all your images now before they fade further. Have a look at our reviews, we have many fro photo album customers
Scan & Crop - £0.50p per photo
All photos albums are scanned on an A3 flatbed. Each photo on the page is cropped individually. You get a scanned file for each photo in the album. This is a life saver for those photos that are glued or stuck into albums and removal is simply not an option. Equally good for very old and fragile photos that need digitising before they deteriorate any further.
Page Scan - £0.80p a page side
Every album page side is scanned to capture everything on the page. This is a great option for albums with captions, notes, dates etc or simply as an archival copy. The whole page side is scanned and cropped not individual photographs. As such, colour correction or contrast adjustments cannot be applied. Need higher dpi or different format, just call us to discuss.
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 and scan them in order by album. Photos will not be replaced back into the album(s) but bundled by album and returned with the empty album (unless you wish us to dispose of the albums).
Scanning Process - 4 Easy Steps
Place your order online
First, sort out your albums and decide whether you want just a page scan or each photo inside the album individually cropped. Count or estimate the number of page sides or photos to scan. Use our online order form to place your order and tell us when you expect to send your order. Pay absolutely nothing upfront, you don't pay anything until we scanned all of your albums and photos. We send an email to let you know your album scanning has been completed and we attach an invoice for payment.
Send us your photo albums
Securely pack your albums in a sturdy box with a copy of your order form (more details on packing your order can be found on our FAQ's page). Send your parcel to the address sent to you on the 'confirmation of your order' email. We recommend a tracked delivery service such as Royal Mail Special Delivery or Signed For service. Larger parcels can be sent using a trusted courier company such as Parcelforce or UPS. Visit parcel2go to get some great rates. We will let you know the moment your package arrives with us.
We now do what we do best! We scan your photos at 600dpi resolution, colour correct, crop and rotate them for viewing. After this we save them in a folder (or named folders if specified - see our FAQ's for more on named folders). We will email you the moment we have completed your photo scans and attach an invoice detailing costs. Once payment has been received, your photos and disk or USB are sent straight back to you. If you choose a download copy, a link will be sent as well.
You view & share!
You now have all your old photo albums digitised and saved for the future. It is now easy to view and share whenever you want to! Read our article about 'Future proofing your digital photo scans' So now, all that is left to do is to enjoy!

Photo Album Scanning Faq's
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.
