Negative Scanning Features
All of your original negatives are returned to you in our special archival acid-free glassine envelopes at no additional charge to you. Orders containing less than 400 negatives are stored on a single data DVD by default. Orders of 400 negatives or more are stored on a single USB flash drive.
*An Important Note About USB Flash Drives
We highly recommend backing up your image files directly to your computer or to a cloud service of your choice upon receiving your completed order. Over time, flash drives can become corrupt for any number of reasons, making it impossible to read the data that is stored on them. We keep all digital files on our system for up to 30 days after your order has been completed if extra copies are needed.
How It Works
Complete your order online or print our order form. Pack your box with your media and ship it to us. Not comfortable shipping? No problem! You can drop your media off in person at our lab in Atlanta.
We will contact you once your order has arrived safely at our facility. Your memories are all then digitized at our lab here in Atlanta, GA by our skilled technicians.
In an average time of 7 business days, your newly digitized memories are ready to be shipped back out to you, or ready to be picked up at our lab, for you and your family to enjoy.
What Our Customers Say
Why Use A Professional Negative Scanning Service?
Frequently Asked Questions
Will my negatives be returned?
Yes. All negatives sent to us for scanning will be returned to you in archival, acid-free glassine envelopes.
Are my negatives cleaned before they are scanned?
Yes. Before scanning takes place, one of our technicians takes the time to clean each of your negatives of surface dust and debris by hand. This ensures a clean, accurate, and high quality scan of each of your negatives.
What final resolution will my negative scans be?
We scan your negatives at 3,000 DPI. This resolution is perfect for saving your newly digitized images on your modern digital devices (computers, phones, tablets) and will even make quality prints. Learn more about scanning resolutions by clicking here.
What will I get back with my finished order?
Negatives will be scanned to high quality JPEG digital files. Orders of 400 negatives or less will be delivered on a single data DVD. This disc can be read by inserting it into any computer with a disc drive. This will not be a video DVD that you can watch on a DVD player. Orders containing more than 400 negatives will be delivered on a single USB flash drive.
Can I choose only a few negatives on a strip to be scanned?
Unfortunately, no. We must scan every frame on a strip of film. This helps to keep our entire scanning process safe and efficient.
Can my negatives be scanned in order?
We cannot guarantee the individual order of negative frames when scanning. We can, however, scan your negatives in group order, or separate your negatives into folders within the scanning process, with some limitations. Please contact us for more information on grouping and organizing your negatives.
