Our Negative Scanning Process
We convert your negatives to high resolution digital images with state-of-the-art scanning equipment, using a meticulous process that delivers enduring quality.
Step 1 - Once we have received your negatives, we start by carefully inspecting and cleaning them using compressed air. We do not use any chemicals or treatments that could damage or degrade the materials.
Step 2 - We scan negatives to digital with a high-resolution Nikon 5000 ED film scanner (not a flatbed scanner). We use dust and scratch removal technologies during scanning to make the digital images shine. The scanning hardware and software converts the negative to the appearance of processed film prints.
Step 3 - After negative scanning, we use post-scanning processing steps that assure you the highest quality digital image from your 35mm negatives. We perform color correction, exposure correction, and careful hand cropping to remove any visible frame borders. On some images we employ grain and noise reduction techniques. This helps particularly on high-speed negative film (e.g., 400 ASA film) and on underexposed negatives. Scanning negatives generally requires more post scan processing to achieve a good digital image.
Step 4 - After scanning and processing your negatives, we load all of the digital images to disc. We return your originals along with your DVD of images using a trackable UPS shipping label. Your negatives are treated with the utmost care while they are in our hands.
Step 5 - In addition to your digital images on disc, we also offer an online gallery service. Select this option on the order form and receive the first month free as a trial. If you don't like it, you may cancel at anytime.
