Slide Scanning Service | Negative Scanning | Photo Scanning
Slides and photographs are kept by many different types of organisations as well as the general public for personal use. Printed photographs are usually kept stored away in boxes where these pictures are susceptible to wear and tear after time. Slide scanning and photo scanning are an effective way to ensure these are all safely backed up electronically for the long-term along with any newer digital photographs.
With our high quality photo scanning, slide scanning and image enhancement processes we can have any collection of photographs or slides digitised and indexed into whatever category you require. By having slides and photographs available electronically it offers many benefits to the owner.
Slide and Photo scanning Benefits

- Search for your photograph or slide quickly by name or reference number.
- Ensure old pictures and slides are digitised safe from loss or damage.

Slides are also susceptible to damage and can be digitally retained during the slide scanning process while also maintaining their original quality just in the same way as microfilm, microfiche and aperture card scanning works.Using high resolution image scanning, the pictures are scanned to capture every intricate detail and if required the pictures can be enhanced to improve the quality of the images and remove any slight wear and tear from the media.Slide scanning
