Though Advanced Photo System (APS) was a type of film used only for a short time, the images captured on those negatives might be some of your family’s favorites. Preserve them with scanning!

Take advantage of our great, flat-fee pricing – regardless of exposure count (15, 25, or 40 exposure). When ordering, choose 2,000 dpi JPEG scans for just $7.95 $3.98 per roll or 4,000 dpi for $12.95 $6.48 per roll.

Packing Instructions

APS film is self-contained in its own canister; do not attempt to remove it. If your canisters are in APS-specific film holders, you may send the film in them; the holders will be returned to you.

Regarding Scanning Aspect Ratios


When scanning APS film the entire negative is scanned regardless of what you shot the layout to be. APS film was designed to always shoot at a 4x7 proportionate negative. During the printing process, the printer would detect what size the photo was shot at (C, HD or P) and would then crop the photo based on that stored information. We scan the entire negative that was shot and ignore what the setting on the camera was at the time of the picture giving you the full image as you can see from the diagram below.

APS crops

Black represents the full 4x7 (HD) proportionate negative
Red represents a 4x6 (C) proportionate crop
Green represents a 4x12 (P) proportionate crop
We scan the black-bordered area, ensuring your full image is scanned, even if you didn't know you had it.

Scanning Limitation


From time to time, we are unable to scan APS rolls. While this occurs only occasionally, we have found that over the years, some places decided to process and print APS film but did want to make the investment into the required equipment to do so. These labs would remove the film from the cartridges and tape it to a card in order to process the film. Unfortunately, when you use this process, you have to cut the film and official APS film printers/scanners require a very specific minimum length of film. If it is even the slightest bit short, it then becomes unprintable/unscannable with the proper equipment, which we have. Sometimes labs would get lucky with their cutting, however most of the time, it was cut too short for official equipment. Since we don't have any other way to scan APS film, we are unable to scan those rolls and will be returned with a note.

This is the default service. Your images will be sent to your computer via an email link. Choose the length of time you want your files to be active--from 5 days to one year. The recommended default is two months.
