Choosing a 35mm Slide and Negative Scanning Service

Nov 8, 2007
If you are one of those people with boxes of old negatives in your basement or hall closet, you are not alone. Photography has been a popular hobby with people ever since the invention of the first camera.

One problem that professional and amateur photographers alike have always faced is deciding the proper way to preserve their art once it has been shot and developed.

The good news is that if you are one of those people with boxes of old negatives and pictures old enough to be in the historical archives, many companies offer 35mm slide scanning services, and digital photo restoration.

Scanning a negative not only allows for the development of the image, but also enhanced digital clarity, even for the oldest negatives. Photo restoration can also repair sun damage and scratches. While there are many companies that offer these services, here are some things that you should look for when choosing a photo restoration and slide scanning service

3000 dpi slide scanning services for 35mm slides, as well as 110,120,126,127, and 200 format slides

Industry standard automated dust and scratch removal, utilizing programs such as Kodak Digital ICE. The slide scanning services that you choose should include a manual color rotation, cropping, red eye removal, rotation, and additional dust and scratch removal as points of service.

Quality slide scanning image processing performed by qualified technicians who employ a trusted photo restoration program, such as Adobe Photoshop.

Additional photo scanning services, preferably 600 dpi photo scanning services for both priceless, antique photos, as well as newspaper clippings, postcards, and other medium.

An experienced photo scanning and slide scanning, photo restoration service should also be able to offer its customers black and white slide and black and white negative scanning. The option to view and choose prints online, preferably with the understanding that you will pay for only the prints that you select.

Does it really make a difference what size memory card you use? If you take a lot of pictures, then choosing a memory card with more storage space will likely be a priority for you, so the short answer, simply put, is yes.

When choosing the most logical memory card size, you should first take into account how many pictures you usually take at a time. As stated in the previous paragraph, If you are a world traveler, your memory card needs will be different from those of a person who only uses a camera for holiday get togethers.

You will also need to decide how big the files are of the pictures that you take. Smaller files, such as those for online pictures will take up less space and enable you to fit more on a card. Larger files for printing will need more room.

If you have a 2 megapixel camera, 128MB is usually enough. For a 3 or 4megapixel camera, a 128MB or 256MB memory card is usually plenty. For a 5megapixel camera, start with a 256MB memory card.
