If you are one of those people then why not let us scan your photos with our hassle free service. Then all those memories can be shared with friends and families and you'll never need to worry about them fading over time.

You could make your own slide shows at home, email copies to friends and family, upload to your facebook profile or even make large prints to display at family reunions. The options are endless once you have the images on Disc.

In most cases we recommend scanning at 300dpi, this is sufficient quality for viewing on a PC or TV, uploading to facebook etc. However if you plan to make large prints or view your pictures on a large TV then you may prefer to pay a little extra and go for the higher resolution at 600dpi.
 

How to prepare your photos

photo scanning colour photo scanning Please try to put your photos into neat bundles of no less than 50 photos and try and keep them in size order. All passport size photos should be kept together so we can scan them separately. We will generally scan them in the order you present them to us but sometimes this may not be possible. For example different sizes of photos may need to go though a different scanner or we may need to rescan some photos due to the images not passing our quality control check. Please also remove blue tack, sellotape or any other 'debris' which may cause problems in the scanner.

Images will be saved in order or in groups if requested, labeling each folder as you have labeled them.

(Mounted photos have to be scanned via flatbed and will be charged at a higher rate)
