How It Works:

35mm slides are considered standard. All other sizes are considered non-standard and additional charges apply. Slides are scanned with an air cleaning process and in rare instances we may use an anti-static cleaning cloth to remove finger prints. Lint, dust and scratches are common, however, on stored slides and unless they can be removed with the air cleaning process, we do not remove these imperfections as part of the capture process. 35mm slide scans are approximately 4496×3000 pixels in size, which can render print sizes between 12x18 and 16x24. Upgrade options with higher resolution scans are available upon request. A size and transparency identification guide is located at the bottom of this page.

How to prepare your slides for scanning:

A good rule: if you bring in a physical mess, you will get back a digital mess.

  • This one's pretty easy: bring them to us in the order you'd like them scanned with proper notes. We do not charge extra for this service.
  • If you have carousels and they are marked, we will keep them in chronological order.
  • If you have them in boxes or loose, you may want to separate them by the date taken or the subject matter.
  • Organizing your originals before drop-off will produce a better outcome. We check all slides for the proper orientation and emulsion before scanning, so you do not need to worry about this in the preparation stage.
