Turn Your Photos into Digital Scans
Our photo scanning service uses advanced scanners and software to achieve great quality scans. We scan photographs from the smallest up to A3 in size. Photos mounted on card or in a frame? No problem, we can scan these too.
For standard loose photos, we use an automated scanner but for larger photos and fragile or card mounted or framed photos, we use a flatbed scanner and keep handling to a minimum.
Don't delay - dig out those old photographs and get them digitised. Save the memories before they fade away!
Our Photo Scanning Service
No upfront payment until all photos are digitised
Loose Photos - £0.10p per photo
Any loose photo that is larger than 2x2in up to 8x11in (A4) can be scanned using this service. No hidden charges, we will colour correct, check contrast and crop for correct viewing all included in the cost
Flatbed Scans - £0.25p per photo
Any photo smaller than 2x2in, or larger than 8x11in (A4). It is also the service that is needed for fragile or old photos or card mounted photos. These are best scanned on a flatbed with as little handling as possible.
We also scan photo albums. If your photographs are stuck in albums and cannot be removed or you have old fragile albums or albums with captions, we can scan them for you. See our Photo Album Scanning Service for more details. See our FAQ's below

Photo 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.
