Scanning negatives to convert them to digital images is just one part of our negative scanning service. Beyond that, each image requires some amount of repair and correction since color slides inevitably experience color shifts and scratches over time (unless you’ve stored them in archival-quality, subzero conditions). We routinely carry out the following fixes to make your digitized negative images look their best.
Re-orientation / Cropping / Scratch and dust removal / Color correction / Red-eye removal.
In short, for our standard negative scanning service, a technician will spend approximately five minutes per negative addressing all of the problems above, and then some. Based on our experience scanning millions of negatives, this produces amazing quality almost all of the time, for just pennies per image. (Some negatives may be so damaged they require our expert photo restoration service, but that’s relatively rare).
Our Negative Scanning Quality
Chances are, your negatives are some of the most precious things you have. They’re actually much more precious than prints of the same image, since the negatives will usually produce much better scans. And some images may only exist as negatives, making them all the more valuable.
