Not only does it safeguard against damage to your original prints, but if the orignal is damaged or faded, it enables image restoration to bring it back to it’s former glory. There’s also the option to create colour versions. Moreover, possessing a digital copy ensures a secure backup for your precious memories.

What can you scan?

35mm Film. (Great if you’ve lost the prints but still have the film)

35mm Slides.  (Ideal if you have slides and would like them in a print and/or digital format)

Old Prints. I can scan prints up to A4 in size, great for producing duplicate prints or digital files of them.

Do you offer image restoration?

Yes. If you have an image which requires extensive post production work, this can be offered alongside the scanning. This can include; removing wrinkles or creases, removing extensive scratches, torn corners etc, removing noise/grain, you can even turn a black and white photograph into colour!

Can I get prints?

Sure, all prints are done in house with a choice of matte/lustre paper or metallic paper. Prints can either be posted or collected with your slides if you chose to drop them off.

How big can I print my images.

For scanned slides / negatives. The main thing that determines how well an image will print at larger sizes is the quality of the original image. If the original image was blurred/out of focus or maybe underexposed this can drastically affect how well an image prints.

Assuming you have a good quality professional standard image, 7200 dpi optical resolution ensures sharp and vivid images and an output of up to 68.9 megapixels. That’s similar to a full frame digital-SLR camera. You can create enlargements up to 36” x 24” at this resolution.

For scanned photos. In most cases 6×4 is a good size, especially if the original image was smaller than a 6×4. (A lot of older photographs are much smaller than our current 6×4 inch 3:2 format) Enlarging a scanned photo works ok as a gradual enlargement, however you do sacrifice some quality the more you enlarge. Print sizes I offer are 6×4, 7×5, A4 & A3.

About image quality

Highlighting the importance of the initial photograph’s quality is crucial for understanding the outcome of the digital image. Please keep in mind that the final digital image’s quality is tied to the original photograph’s clarity and exposure. Unfortunately, underexposed or out-of-focus photographs cannot be rectified.
