If you are looking to digitize big boxes of negatives or slides, a mail-in photo scanning service might be the way to go.

 



Although its website is a little difficult to navigate, Scan My Photos is one of the oldest and fastest scanning services around. It’s been in business since 1990, offers its services internationally and scans are delivered within 10-20 days of the company receiving your negatives.

 


This company also offers the option of Express Scanning; this costs $150 per box, but ensures that your scans are completed in one business day. Scans for 35mm negatives start at 47 cents per frame for 2000 DPI files and 89 cents per frame for 4000 DPI files. Digital files are delivered via DVD or USB, and for an extra charge they can upload to the cloud. Scan My Photos offers scanning services for 35mm film, 120 film, APS film, and slide film.
