Slide Scanning

Be sure to read the FAQ page!

We offer one of the highest-quality and highest-resolution slide 

scanning services available anywhere!  If your original slide is sharp and

properly exposed, you will be able to make large wall prints from our scans.

 

The Process:

  • Your slides are removed from their box, slide tray, or other packaging that you have presented them in.  We try to keep your slides in the categories you have indicated (i.e. "Summer1986" - We reserve the right to limit categories, or charge an additional fee for excessive categories.)

  • Each slide is dusted using an anti-static brush and then loaded into a carousel.  Once the 80 slide carousel is fully loaded, we use a high speed blower to further remove any loose dust or debris before placing the carousel onto our specialized SlideSnap Pro scanner. 

  • We calibrate the alignment and focus, and then start the scanner.  One slide is automatically photographed about every 2-3 seconds until the carousel is completed. Meanwhile, we have been loading more carousels to repeat the process until all of your your slides are digitized. 

  • Once your slides have all been digitized, we upload the images to a computer where we use 2 or 3 specialized software applications to remove black borders, rotate the slides, and apply basic color and brightness adjustments.  

  • Once all the adjustments are finalized, we copy the images to a USB flash drive, print index pages for you, and complete the process.  We also return your slides to their original packaging.

  • All scanning takes place in-house … we don’t ship out like other places.

  • Slides are rotated for proper orientation.
