Why use a photo scanning to digital service
The key benefits of ProScan’s professional photo scanning UK service include:
To prevent damage and deterioration to your photos
Paper photos can be accidentally torn, develop curled edges or even be damaged by fire or flood, potentially resulting in lost images which can never be recovered. Digitisation of physical photos creates a back-up copy that is safe from damage and can be printed and reprinted so that your treasured memories are forever safe.
Photos are also prone to deterioration over the years, with images fading and colours shifting. A scanned photograph is preserved forever and can even be adjusted digitally to restore colours and remove superficial damage.
Once you have the digital version of your photo you can keep the originals in a safe place so that they are much less likely to fade or be damaged. We can supply you with the scanned files on a CD or a USB thumb drive and can even store it in “the cloud” for you for ultimate reassurance against loss.
You can share your photos with friends and family
We scan photos into 300dpi as standard, and these images can be shared directly with friends and family via WhatsApp or social media.
Larger images can be arranged on request, allowing you to enlarge your images for print purposes or for using in artwork. Digitised photos can also be displayed in high-definition on your television set if you have an Amazon Fire Stick, Apple TV box, Roku box, or a Google Chromecast device.
You can create photo collections with ease
You can transfer digital photo files to memory sticks, CDs and DVDs, creating a full digital directory of your photo collection. This makes it simple to organise your photos into groups which can then be used for albums, events, and gifts.
You can even tag people and add keywords to digital photos, so that you can quickly bring up all images with a certain person in, or specific events and themes.
We can create prints from your scanned photos
Digital images are easy to share but we understand that many of our customers want their photos for display as well.
Our comprehensive printing service takes your scanned images and creates high-quality prints for you on high grade 6 x 4 photographic paper, updating your old photos so that they look their best for display.
We can also produce much larger prints, scanned and digitised in 600dpi, and printed onto 200gsm satin poster paper up to A0 poster size (841 x 1189 mm).
