Slide Scanning

scan your slides before they fade away

SCANNING & ARCHIVING

Bring your old slides into the 21st Century by having them scanned onto an archival CD/DVD, or converting them into a DVD Slideshow.

Kodachrome, Ektachrome, Agfachrome, Perutz, GAF, Fujichrome, Pacific, Ansco and more.

Some of these names are still around, but many are now just a memory.

In the 50's, 60's and 70's colour slides (transparencies) were very popular, and many people still remember being invited around to a friend's place for a "slide night"! Whilst parents and grandparents may remember seeing their slides, many children and grandchildren have never seen the slides, but may be in them when they were much younger!

By having them scanned to disc, you can get prints from them, email them, print them at home, or have a DVD Slideshow made of all the images.

Most importantly, you can stop the ageing process, and preserve the slides onto standard or archival CD's or DVD's for generations.

If you give them to us in the slide trays or carousels, we will scan them in that order for you. If they are in boxes, just number them, and we will follow your instructions.

ALL slides are cleaned and then checked and corrected (where possible) for colour and density before we scan them. We do not “bulk scan” your treasured slides – we actually look at EVERY one of them before scanning & after scanning.

Another great positive with having your slides scanned to disc is that you can copy the disc (or ask us to do it for you) and share the photos with everyone in the family. It makes it far easier to help put together family details and history.

We can also scan onto Archival CD’s or DVD’s which have lives of over 100 years.

Slides can be scanned at different resolutions, depending on what you want to do with the files.

Here are the resolution details for 35mm slides

Standard Scans 1024x1545 pixels, which will generate a 4.5mb file

High Resolution Scans 2048x3072 pixels, which will generate a 17mb file

Ultra Resolution Scans 4492x6774 pixels, which will generate an 80mb file

We can also scan 110, 126, 127, Agfa Rapid, X Pan and medium format slides and most other old or unusual formats and film.

How long does it take?

How long does it take?

We remove dust as best possible but do not apply any liquid cleaners as this can deterioate slides, ICE and ROC digital technologies are applied to slides on scanning, this helps remove scratches and improve colour on faded slides.
