Important Notes

Our scanners are set up to scan standard 35mm slides. If we receive 126mm mounted slides, some of your image will be cropped off the top and bottom while some of the slide mount will be scanned on the right and left. Similarly, if we receive 110 mounted slides, your image will be smaller with a large black border on all sides. We cannot alter this. See the image below for diagrams showing the crop and an example of what the scan looks like.

126 slide versus 135 slideSample scan from a 126mm slide
110 slide versus 135 slideSample scan from a 110 slide

Slides that are double mounted (see below) must be removed from metal mounts prior to submission for scanning. Any slide received still mounted in the metal bracket will not be scanned.
