Standard 35mm Film Scans: A standard 35mm film scan is suitable for digital sharing or printing up to 8x12" size. 35mm film is scanned at 2000dpi to create a 3-4MB JPEG film (resolution 3637x2433px). This service is only available for 35mm negatives cut into 4 or 5 frame strips, or 35mm slides in standard cardboard or plastic mounts - 35mm film that does not meet these requirements, and all other film types must be scanned as Hi-Res.
Hi-Res Film Scans: Hi-res scans scans provide the best quality scans for any film type. It is recommended for archiving and large poster-sized printed. Film is scanned at 4800dpi (resolution up to 7500x5400px) and cleaned up digitally to create a 5-20MB JPEG file.
Standard Print Scans: Standard scans are suitable is suitable for duplicating an 8x10 or smaller photo up to 2x its original size. Prints are scanned at 600dpi (up to 6000x4800px) to produce a 2-5MB JPEG.
Hi-Res Print Scans: Hi-Res scans are ideal for archiving and creating larger reproductions from 8x10 or smaller prints. Prints are scanned at 1200dpi and digitally cleaned up to create a 36MB JPEG file.
Image Capture: For prints larger than 8x10 size, but smaller than 16x20, an digital image capture copy shot is necessary. A 30-37MP image is captured to create a 13-29MB JPEG file. For prints larger than 16x20, or collages containing small details such as text, multiple image captures may need to be taken, then digitally stitched together - an Art's lab associate will consult with you about the best image capture solution and project estimate.
