How It Works







Organise your items whether it’s photos, negatives, slides, video, cine film or a mix, then place your order through this website . When the order is placed, you will be sent a confirmation e-mail with our address and your personal order number. You then send your items to us through the postal service of your choice. We receive the photos, confirm their arrival with you, and then scan. When complete, we will send the scanned items back to you along with the media of your choice via next day tracked delivery.

We offer a choice of scanning resolutions of 300 dpi (standard) or 600 dpi (best) for photos, and 1200 dpi (standard) or 4800 dpi (best) for transparencies. There is also choice of media: a DVD or a USB memory stick. We can offer alternatives upon arrangement.

All images are scanned to a standard JPEG format (other formats are available on request), cropped as necessary and rotated to ensure that they are of the highest quality and ready to view, and videos / cine film are converted to playable DVD format or HD MP4 burned on a DVD disk. All payments are made through our secure shopping cart system, and return postage via secure delivery is included in the price - there are no hidden extras.

We can scan a wide range of transparency types, so if you do not see a type that you would like scanned, please contact us. We can also scan mixed orders of photos, slides, and negatives, so please contact us to discuss your needs.

All items remain on our premises for scanning and are securely stored. We understand that all the items you send to us are extremely precious and treat them as we would treat our own. We will let you know when they arrive, and when we expect to be ready to return them, and we check that you have received them. If you prefer to drop them off and collect them, that can be easily arranged, and for local customers, we can personally collect and deliver upon arrangement.
