Slide Scanning

35mm photography slide

A slide is an individual image on film, mounted within a frame (usually plastic). The frame allows the image to be viewed with a slide projector, producing exactly what was captured on film without printing. We charge per slide, providing discounts for larger quantities. Each slide is 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.
