Each slide or transparency is inspected by a colour technician, removed from its frame or sleeve, cleaned with special cleansing agents and sealed to an optically pure cylinder with a thin layer of optically pure gel beneath. This process, causes any minute surface pits, scratches and defects to disappear. With a scan resolution of more than 16,980 ppi, the results are crystal clear, clean, sharp and brilliant.
When the scan is finished, the slide or transparency is cleaned and safely returned to its frame or sleeve. At just $50 each for enlargements up to 8.5″ x 11″ including some general, overall, post scan image adjustments by our colour technicians you get the best results from every image. Also, we can make stunning prints from these scans. So, if you have precious transparencies or slides which you want to capture, enlarge and print, this is the very best method. Bad photos can be improved dramatically by these scans plus post processing. Prints, local image work, CDs or DVDs are additional.
For document scans, we remove any loose material that may be on the originals. However, any stains, pits, scratches or water marks etc. that we are unable to remove will be picked up by the scanners. Post processing would be required to remove any such defects. Included in every scan , upon request, is general overall adjustment in order to correct exposure errors which may exist in your originals, reduce unpleasant colour casts, increase sharpness and contrast etc. Local work is additional.
