Figuring out what scanning resolution you want your negatives digitized at is an important factor in your project. Scanning resolution will determine the quality of the scan. It is similar to the concept of megapixels on a digital camera, and as with most things, the higher the scanning resolution you choose, the higher the quality. Want to see the difference? Check out our different scanning resolutions and what they mean.

Things To Know
Frame vs. Strip
We will bill for every frame, not per strip. A strip is when there are multiple pictures side by side, where a frame is a single image.
Black & White Film
Our professional scanners use a technology known as Digital Ice Infrared Clean, but unfortunately, it does not work on Black and White film. We always welcome black and white negatives; however, dust, scratches, and fingerprints may be visible on the scans.
Carded Medium Format
Medium format films need to be loose. Any film(s) sent in a card will incur a $2 fee per frame.
If your strip length exceeds the numbers below, we may need to cut your film strips into shorter lengths.
2.25" x 1.75" - 3 frames max
2.25" x 2.25" - 3 frames max
2.25" x 2.75" - 2 frames max
2.25" x 3.00" - 2 frames max
2.25" x 3.25" - 2 frames max
2.25" x 3.75" - 2 frames max

As film ages, the dyes begin to fade which leads your film to be discolored. That is why all Medium Format format negatives will be digitally color corrected after we have scanned them - for free. PRO digital color correction comes included on all PRO level orders. If you feel like your negatives extra help beyond typical fading, contact us about premium color correction upgrade.
