Preserve Your Legacy with our Digital Negative Scanning Services
We offer medium or high resolution scans for your film negatives. For 35mm and APS film, you may choose 2,000 or 4,000 dpi JPEG scans; for 120mm, you may choose 1,000 or 2,000 dpi JPEG scans.
QUICK TIP 2,000 dpi is best if you want to print slides as photos; you can print up to 8 x 10” photos, and in some cases, 11 x 14” photos. For a true archival digital image – or to print posters from your images – choose 4,000 dpi.
