Negative Scanning

35mm negative strip of four images.

Negative images, usually found in the form of strips or rolls are the master copy of printed photographs, this is why scanning a negative produces a far better image than scanning a photo. We charge per image, providing discounts for larger quantities. Your negatives are carefully handled and cleaned of excess dirt and dust. They are then scanned on a professional flatbed scanner at 4800 DPI, this is a very high resolution and you will have no trouble producing your image at most sizes.

As standard we do do some restorative work to each image, including colour correction and dust/scratch removal. We also crop and properly orientate your images. Depending on the type of film we will occassionally use Digital ICE - an inbuilt infared scanning technique that identifies and removes dust and scratches.

We produce your images as either a JPEG or TIFF file format:

JPEG: Slightly less image quality, small file sizes

TIFF: Best possible image quality, large file sizes

1-99 images: £0.40 per image.

100-499 images: £0.30 per image

500+ images: £0.25 per image

Images are placed onto a data CD/DVD, these are viewable on most DVD players.

If you would prefer to have a memory stick/hard drive, we will provide one at cost.
