High Resolution Film Negative Scanning

Quality is our Focus

We take pride in producing the best possible image quality from negatives. We start with high resolution scanning to maximize image detail and allows for increased flexibility for enlarging, editing, and printing.  We then manually edit each image to adjust for color, exposure, and cleanliness as needed. All images undergo a final round of quality assurance review.

Photo Scanning

Handled with Care

We gently handle your negatives and wear film handling gloves so we don’t leave any fingerprints behind and wipe film clean of dust and debris before scanning. We also pay close attention to scan the proper emulsion side of negatives for accurate image orientation.

Custom Titled Folders

Custom Digital Organization

We scan and organize your negatives digitally in the order and groupings provided based on subject or year. If your negatives are not organized, you may find it easier to organize them digitally after scanning by creating new folders to drag and drop the images.

What scanning resolution do you use?

High resolution is our standard which offers greater flexibility for cropping and enlarging the digital images.  This includes 4000 dpi resolution for standard negatives like 35mm and 3000 dpi for 120 medium formats.  A 4000 dpi resolution of 35mm format results in a digital image size of about 3600 x 5400 pixels or about 20 megapixels.

What megapixel size do you produce from 35mm format?

The megapixel size we produce from 35mm format is about 20 megapixels or about 5400×3600 pixels.

What image file format options do you offer?

The standard digital image output we offer is JPEG.  TIFF format is optional by request.

Is the pricing per frame or per negative strip?

The pricing is per frame. A negative strip with 4 frames would be 4 scans or images.  We offer selective frame scanning at an additional cost for special handling.

Can I select only which frames I want scanned on a negative strip?

We do offer a select frame scanning option for a surcharge if you wish to choose only select images.  The best way to indicate which frames to digitize is to store the negatives in archival negative preserver sheets and use a marker to box the frames to scan and also write the frame number on the edge inside the box to avoid any confusion if the strips shift in the sleeves.

Will I be able to preview my images before finalizing and paying for my order?

Yes, we can create a gallery of your digitized images in your online account by your request if you would like to preview your images or choose images for possible advanced restoration.

How will my digital transfers be organized?

We will create custom digital folders for each group of media provided, titled by subject (if applicable).  We make it easy to correlate the digital transfers to the original media.

I have prints and negatives, which one is better to scan?

As a general rule, scanning from the original negative will yield a higher resolution image, but the quality will depend on the condition of the negative and associated print.  The digital image from either a negative or a print will vary since each is digitized using a different process. The image from a negative may show more film grain but more detail and a scan from a print may look a little less sharp.

Do you scan black and white negatives?

Yes, we work with digitizing both color and black and white negatives in many formats.

Do scans of negatives result in a positive image?

Yes, the resulting scan of your negatives will be a positive image and we include manual editing to enhance color and exposure as needed.

Do you scan APS film cartridges?

Yes! We do have the capability to scan APS cartridge format negatives.
