We offer a range of scanning resolutions. The appropriate resolution depends on whether you intend eventually printing the image, the amount of damage the image has and the quality of the original image.
Photo resolutions : these are customised to the task. 600 dpi minimum or higher where there is extensive damge or enlargement is required.
Slide and negative scan resolutions: 1350, 2700, 3200 or 5400 dpi
As certain automated scanning procedures (e.g. digital ICE) cannot be used on some film types it is useful to know what the film brand is for slides and negatives.
For restoration of photos, slides and negatives and to help us determine whether a light, medium or heavy restoration is required, please describe what work is required:
- What damage you would like removed e.g. a scratch, stain, tear etc
- Whether you would like the removal of an item or a person from the photo
- Whether you would like overexposure or lighting/ shadows corrected
- Whether you would like the item cropped to improve its composition
- Whether you would like two items combined into one photo
- For colour images, whether you would like the item colour corrected and balanced
- For black and white images, whether you would like the end result as a black and white image or with an antique sepia effect or whether you would like the image coloured.
Specify the digital format required: TIFF (lossless), jpeg, png, pdf, bitmap. (We recommend an unalterd copy of the original image is made in TIFF format and restored copy in jpeg format for easier handling).
Specify whether you would like finished images on a DVD data disk, on a memory stick or securely sent to you via our website uploader.
