Shoebox Scanning

Photos are scanned at 300 dpi, through our Kodak Photo Scanner.

  • Photos should be loose and unmounted, not in photo albums.
  • Make sure photos are not torn or bent, do not have staples, or glue.
  • Photos smaller than 2½ by 3½ inches or larger than 8″x 10″  cannot be scanned using this method.
  • Mounted or thick photos, such as Polaroid Instant Photos, will not feed through our automated equipment.

Custom scans of any size original at any resolution, and photo retouching and restoration are available by quote.

Slides, Film (35mm & 120mm), prints, and tapes can all be transferred to CDs & DVDs.
