Below are our scanning (digitizing) prices and we guarantee they are the lowest*.

 

The prices will be honored for 30 days after the order is placed. If we do not receive the items you want scanned within the 30 day period, the prices may increase.

 

You only need to pay a $10 return S&H estimate upfront. Pay the rest after our services are complete.

Which resolution (PPI) should you get? Read about it HERE.

 

Please keep in mind that Digital ICE dust and scratch correction does not work with printed photos, black and white negatives, black and white slides or Kodak Kodachrome. You will need to sort those out from the others and group them together. Dust and scratch correction for those photos will need to be done by someone with photo editing software later. We recommend you add the TIF file to your order because it's the best file format for photo editing. You can read more about Digital ICE HERE.

 

JPG file format is included in the prices below. If you want the original TIF file also, add 5¢ per scanned item. What are JPG and TIF file formats?

 

Scanning Service(s) + Storage Media(s) + Return S&H + Tax if in Michigan = Total Price (no surprise costs)

 

Storage Media for your Scanned Digital Image Files: (this is how you receive your scanned digital image files)

  • DVD Storage. One DVD holds 4.3GB. The cost is $3 for each DVD needed to store your scanned digital image files. DVD(s) for archiving should last 30-70 years if stored properly. All digital image files copied to the DVD are completely verified to be identical to the original before we send them to you.
  • USB Flash Drive Storage. The cost is $9 for each 16GB of storage space needed. The scanned digital image files will be stored and mailed to you on one or more USB Flash Drives (depending on the total data size of your digital files). Digital files stored on USB flash drives (thumb drives) are not recommended for archiving. Your photos will last on a new unused USB flash drive for a maximum of about 10 years if stored properly. Realistically though, it would probably be a lot less.

 


Photo Print Scanning: (photos that have already been printed)

 

We accept photo albums (no additional charge).

 

Prices are per digitized item up to 8.5" by 11", color or black and white.

 

Photo Prints Flatbed Scanning Prices:

  • 600ppi = $0.34 per item scanned

  • 1200ppi = $0.49 per item scanned

 

 

2x2 Slide Scanning:

 

This slide scanning category is for all standard 2-inch by 2-inch mount (frame) slides.  For slides that are smaller or larger than 2" x 2", see "Non-Standard Mount Slide Scanning" below.

 

We do not remove the film from the mount.

 

We accept slide carousels (no additional charge).

 

We may need to make a small mark, with a pencil, on some slide mounts for sorting or orientation purposes. This will not affect the photo in any way.

 

Prices are per digitized slide, color or black and white.

 

Premium option 2" x 2" Mount Slide Scanning:

  1. This slide scanning option is for all standard 2-inch by 2-inch mount (frame) slides only.  For slides that are smaller or larger than 2" x 2", see "Non-Standard Mount Slide Scanning" below.
  2. No minimum order quantity.
  3. If you group your slides, please no fewer than 36 slides per group.
  4. Includes optional Digital ICE dust and scratch removal for your images. If you want Digital ICE, it's free. Just add it to your cart when placing your order. Digital ICE does not work with Kodachrome or black and white slides. You can read about Digital ICE HERE.
  5. Includes a JPG digital image file Color Corrected by a real person using Photoshop after the slide is scanned. This is needed for slides that have faded and changed color. Please note: Color correction does not work with slides that have had most of the colors fade away resulting in slides that look extremely red. With these slides, we will give you a black and white digital image of the slide in addition to the original scanned digital image. The color in the original scanned image file can be restored by someone later.
  6. Includes Photoshop brightness and contrast (adjustment for photos too light or too dark). If the original photo is extremely over-exposed or under-exposed (extremely light or dark), we will attempt to get it to look properly exposed, but please keep in mind that it will not look as good as if it were properly exposed when the photo was taken.
  7. The Premium option includes the original JPG digital image file without color correction. Color correction is subjective. It's good to have this file in case you want someone to correct the image differently at some point in the future.
  8. We recommend 4800ppi for 110 film slides. You can view different 2x2 photo slide film formats HERE.

 

Premium Option 2x2 Slide Scanning Prices:

  • 2400ppi (about 6MP for a 35mm slide) = 33¢ per slide
  • 4800ppi (about 25MP for a 35mm slide) = 48¢ per slide

 

Economy Option 2" x 2" Mount Slide Scanning: The following conditions help us keep the prices low.

  1. This slide scanning option is for all standard 2-inch by 2-inch mount (frame) slides only.  For slides that are smaller or larger than 2" x 2", see "Non-Standard Mount Slide Scanning" below.
  2. $200 minimum order.
  3. If you group your slides, please no fewer than 80 slides per group.
  4. No protective slide sheets. Please remove slides from protective sleeves before sending them to us.
  5. Digital ICE dust and scratch removal is not available with this option. You can get dust and scratch removal done, on the images that really need it, by someone later.
  6. If the slides in a group have different film types or sizes, they will not be scanned together and will not be returned in the sorted order we received them in (view different 2x2 photo slide film formats HERE.). Other than that, we will do our best to keep them in the sorted order we received them in. All of the slides and scanned digital images will be kept in the group we received them in. Please remember the scanned digital images can easily be re-sorted later.
  7. Most slides will be returned with the proper orientation, but some will be sideways or upside-down. All of the scanned digital images will have proper orientation.
  8. The Economy option includes only the JPG image file automatically color corrected by the scanner's software while the slide is being scanned.
  • The scanner color correction does not work well for slides that have more than minor fading and color changes. The scanned digital image of extremely red slides (slides that have had most of the other colors fade away) will look red.
  • The scanner's automatic software does not adjust for over and under exposed photos as well as a person using Photoshop (photos too light or too dark). Photoshop brightness and contrast is included in the Premium scanning option.
  • Since there is no original image file without color correction, there will be less editing options later. (The Photoshop Color Correction included in the Premium scanning usually looks much better especially on slides that have faded and changed color.)
