Negatives Scanned to Image Files, Work Done In-House!
Image Cleaning and Enhancement (optional)
Other file formats and higher resolution scans available. For extensive damage, see Photo Restoration.
Wow! I took 22 year-old negatives to them for digital scanning. After 3-4 business days they called me to let me know my images were ready. They said they were able to restore most of the color to the scans despite the negatives being in very poor condition. When I got home and looked at them I literally shed a tear...or two! These were priceless military photos of a deployment that could not be replaced. They did a MAGNIFICENT job restoring them back to how I remember them being taken in the moment. Thank you so much! I would highly recommend them to anyone needing professional multi-media support. Thank you, a million times over!

All work is done here in our office. Your negatives are NOT shipped to another company or another state.
Standard 35mm negatives are digitized at 2400ppi and saved as an image file.
Custom File Names
We will name each image based on groups of at least 50. Just place the negatives in a zippered plastic bag and write a name on the outside (for example, 1974 Wedding).
We will rotate each image to its proper orientation.
Each image will be cropped to a clean edge.
Color Correction (optional)
Each image will be color corrected to bring out the lost colors. We do this MANUALLY with EACH NEGATIVE. This is not an automated process.
Image Touch-ups (optional)
We also do some light touch-up work to remove defects in the image, like dust and light scratches.
Final Image Files
Each digital image will be saved to a JPG file. JPG files are very common with good quality and can be edited, posted, and shared. (other formats available)
Each file will have an overall name and sequence number at the end. For example, "1979_201" or "Wedding_307". When a date is available, we will start each group with the year for easy reference like "1975_Anniversary_059". We can name your images based on your groups (50+ per group).
Try to avoid touching the flat surface of the negatives because this can leave fingerprints. Leave the negatives in strips, do not cut the negatives apart. Place the negatives in an envelope (or leave them in the original photo envelope if they are already in there). If you like, you can group your negatives by year or event. This will help us with naming your files (50+ per group).
Once scanning is complete (and optional image enhancement), your images are ready for delivery. You can choose USB drive or Cloud Delivery (or both). For the USB drive, we'll copy all the files to the drive and return it with your media. For Cloud Delivery, we will upload your image files to a secure location and email you a link so you can download them to your computer. This link is private and temporary, so be sure to save them to your personal storage.
Yes. Though our normal scan of 2400ppi is high enough resolution for most purposes, we can scan up to 9600ppi. Let us know your needs and we will guide you on the best one for your project.
Yes, we can. We offer basic and custom slideshows. Basic slideshows have dissolve transitions and background music. We also offer custom slideshows which are amazing! We combine your choice of music with video effects and transitions to create a memorable video on USB or DVD. Learn more about custom slideshow packages here.
Absolutely, just send us your negatives. Go to our Shipping Your Order page or just get an Images to Digital Order Form to include with your shipment. When we receive it, we will give you a price quote and an estimated completion date. Need it done fast? Let us know your deadline and we'll do whatever we can to meet it.
