Which resolution should you choose?

 

We offer scanning in two resolutions: 300 dpi (dots per inch) or 600 dpi.

 

300 dpi is a high quality standard resolution that can be used for most applications. It can be used for computer viewing, making slide shows, printing photos up to 5x7", posting photos online, digital photo frames, and emailing. This resolution produces 250-500 kb files for each photo with a pixel size of about 1800x1200.

     

600 dpi may be needed when you are editing or cropping and need higher resolution. 

This resolution produces 750kb-1.25MB files with a pixel size of about 3600x2400.

Give us loose photos in a box or give us your photo album

  

Your photos will be returned just as you gave them to us. Sort them out how you'd like to see them on your disc or flash drive. We'll scan them and get them back to you exactly as they were.

 

The more photos you give us, the lower the price per photo. See our price chart here

 

Photos in albums are often difficult to remove. In fact, removing them may damage the photos.

You can leave them in the album and we'll scan the whole page so they stay safe and undamaged.

You can choose CD, DVD or flash drive to store your photos

   

After your photos have been scanned, we store your digital images in one of 3 ways:

 

  • Photo-grade CD-R or DVD-R (free): Ideal for storing digital images. They are one-time record discs to ensure your photos will not be erased. Discs have a crystal coating to protect them from scratching during everyday handling. 

  • Archival-grade CD-R or DVD-R ($5): These discs will last for 100 years when properly stored. They have a silver layer for compatablility with all drives and recorders, plus a gold layer which prevents oxygen from corroding the silver layer.

  • Flash drive ($10)
