SLIDE SCANNING SERVICES

Slide scans are $3 each when done manually (it's a slow process) and $1 each if you pre-sort your slides so we can feed them into our bulk-feeding accessory.

Images from slide scans retain about the same color as the original. Dark slides are still dark, faded images are still faded, good pictures are still good. Images from slides will have minor color correction applied after scanning. However it is difficult to correct over-exposed & under-exposed slides as well as those with a bad color cast or mildew damage.

Black edges may occur on slides, due to variations in slide mounts.

Pre-sorting

  • Remove slides from slide pockets, carousels, slide boxes, or magazine boxes—you can leave them in but they will be scanned at the manual rate.
  • Remove buckled slides or extra thick slides—these must be scanned manually.
  • Stack/bundle your slides into groups of 20~25 that have been sorted as follows:  
    - separate 126 (square) slides as they are a different shape from 35mm slides.
    - sort slide into groups of the same thickness - i.e. don't mix thin cardboard mounts with thicker plastic.
    - orientation: Rotate slides so that all are orientated the same way (i.e. as film was in camera). Slides can only be scanned in a landscape format - any facing upright will lose the top and bottom..
    - emulsion: the emulsion (non-shiny) side of every slide facing the same direction to avoid photos being back to front.
  • All slides are scanned at 2000x3000 pixels. The files can be used to make up to 8x12” prints, create DVD slideshows and turn into PhotoBooks & Collage Posters.
  • If you want to enlarge the photos further then please request high resolution scans—these take longer so cost a little more.
  • All files will be saved as jpeg files unless otherwise requested

We'd love to see you.
