Scanning Film

Standard 35mm Film Scans: Suitable for digital sharing or printing up to 8x12" size. 35mm film is scanned at 2000dpi to create a 3-4MB JPEG file. 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.

Standard non-35mm Film Scans: Suitable for digital sharing or printing up to 8x12" size. Film is scanned at 2400dpi to create a 2.5-10MB JPEG file. This service is available for any film type. 

Hi-Res Film Scans: Provides the best quality scans for any film type. It is recommended for archiving and large poster-sized prints. Film is scanned at 4800dpi and cleaned up digitally to create a 5-20MB JPEG file.

Scanning Prints

Standard Print Scans: Suitable is suitable for duplicating an 8x10 or smaller photo up to 2x its original size. Prints are scanned at 600dpi to produce a 2-5MB JPEG.

Hi-Res Print Scans: 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.
