MORE ABOUT OUR SLIDE SCANNING SERVICE
With our regular slide scanning service, we scan all slides that are mounted into 2 inch card, plastic, glass or metal holders. Film size may vary, but that is not a problem to us.
Rest assured, we will scan the whole film area, unlike some companies who can only scan 35mm. They crop off both the top and bottom off any film larger than this.
We scan slides at an optimum resolution of 3200dpi. At this resolution you can be sure that we have captured as much detail as available from the film.
If you have any questions about our slide scanning service, please do not hesitate to call us to discuss.

useful tips and often asked questions
Good question! It really depends upon how many slides are in an order. We would expect to turnaround an order of several hundred within a week. Larger slide orders are likely to take longer but we would always let customers know how long a large order might take.
Yes! We will always endeavour to do this. Occasionally a slip up may occur but this can easily be rectified on your computer.
Yes we do. We try to eliminate as much dust as possible pre-scanning. We lightly brush each slide with a Kinetronics anti-static brush to dislodge dust particles then blow each slide individually with compressed air. If your slides are very dirty or have mould or fungus, we recommend cleaning them thoroughly before sending them to us. We can provide heavier cleaning for dirty slides but unfortunately we would need to apply an additional charge based upon how bad the slides or negatives are.
We used to but it can often badly distort things such as eyes and nostrils. It also softens an image removing detail such as buttons on a coat, telephone lines against the sky etc. Our view is that it's better to a little bit of dust than to blur or distort an image. Any obvious dust missed in the pre-scan clean will be removed when we check and enhance the scan in Photoshop.
Yes, we keep a digital backup of both the original scans and the enhanced scans. We keep these for 28 days after payment and then delete completely.
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.
No. We will never use any customers images. They are the customers property, besides which, we would be infringing copyright laws.
No! Life is too short for that! A full and accurate count takes place as we scan and we will send you an invoice for the actual numbers scanned.
Yes we can. Just make sure your slides in separate boxes or bundles and add a title for the folder name.
We will crop and orientate your slides. We'd love to guarantee 100% accuracy....but very occasionally, we may not be able to determine the correct oreintation. Should this happen, you should be able to easily orientate on your computer.
We can scan your risqué photos if you want us to. We will not however scan anything that is illegal.
Pack your photos in a secure well padded box with plenty of tape to secure! Please read our information page about packing scanning order safely.
