We offer 35 millimetres slide scanning service from which you can revive your old 35 millimetres slides. Do you remember the last time you saw your 35mm slides on your projector? Do you have a projector at your home? We have a slide scanning service which will enable you to view your 35mm slides on the latest gadgets such as phones, televisions, photo frames and tablets.
All our scans are equipped with the auto colour correction feature as well as the digital ICE which helps to remove all the dust and scratches. You should think about not wasting your old memories because we will offer you our slide scanning services such as the Fujichrome and Kodachrome and convert them to JPEG files which can then be used on any MAC or PC.
We scan each and every file individually and we also make sure that all the slides have proper colours, and are also equipped with the ICE technology which promotes dust and scratches removal.
For the 35mm slides, we have two kinds of resolutions, 1200 dots per inch and 4800 dots per inch. The 4800 dots per inch will be a very large picture of course and will print out larger images as well and the file size of this picture will be 20 MB.
We offer special discounts to our customers if they place large orders so you can call us any time and ask our rates by telling us the number of slides you want to be scanned. Our slide scanning service scans all types of slides including Kodachrome and Fujichrome.
If you have positive slides in different sizes, we offer scanning service for them as well since we have a team of great experts and even glass slides. We also offer a complete photo scanning service for our customers.
DPI Dots per inch is the term used to measure the density of an image, namely the number of dots that can be placed in a line within 1 inch (2.54cm). The higher the DPI used to scan an image, the larger the resulting file will be. Most photographs are printed at 300 DPI, and so scanning at a higher resolution wont improve the quality of the image, however if you intend to print enlargements using a photo printing website it will be better to scan your photo’s at a higher resolution and send them the high resolution file. Some web sites will enlarge the print using low quality software, so the more you can do to minimize the changes your printers need to do the better.
JPEG files are the most commonly used method of storing photographs on computers and digital cameras. Photo’s scanned to JPEG files do produce excellent results whilst taking up a minimum of space, and achieves this by compressing your images, which results in a loss of quality. However, the JPEG standard allows for different levels of compression, with higher quality scans resulting the less you compress the image. By default, ScantoDigital scan your photographs in JPEG format with the least level of compression, resulting in high quality images that are reasonably large in size. The quality will outstanding and will look fantastic for everyday use such as reprinting your family photographs etc. There are some applications that require a higher quality, e.g. images to be printed in magazines, where professionals require the highest quality possible, in which case, we are happy to scan your photographs in TIFF format which are lossless (i.e. have no compression) but take up HUGE amounts of disk space.
TIF Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) files are commonly used to store images within the publishing industry, graphic artists and professional photographers. TIFF files produce a better quality image when compared to JPEG files, because the images are not compressed, however they take significantly more space on your hard drive, e.g. a 1200 DPI scan of a transparency that creates an image sized 5267 * 6899 pixels is 18.2MB in JPEG format but 105.2MB in TIFF format. As you can see from these figures, the JPEG format has removed 80MB of the same image, and therefore it is logical to assume that the TIFF file is of higher quality, however this is a very subjective area as a lot of people cannot tell the difference, and the cost of storing TIFF files compared to JPEG on your systems can be a lot higher simply due amount of disk space required.
At ScantoDigital, we will be really happy to scan your slides in whatever format you select without charging you extra. The default settings include slides at 4800 dots per inch, in the JPEG format. But if you have any other requirement or changes you can contact us on the phone as well as personally visit us.
You should find out the total cost for scanning the negatives. If the negatives have high resolution the price will be higher, if the negatives have low resolution then the price will automatically be reduced. It is up to you to decide if you want the negative scanning in TIFF or JPEG format without any additional charges.
