If you have negatives, slides, prints or other images that you need to use on the web, in publications, or just to have a digital record for yourself I can digitize them for you. A good example is if you have family albums with prints in them but you have no negatives I can scan the whole album and turn it into a TIF and PDF document that anyone with a computer can then view.
Always send items via FedEx, UPS, or if USPS registered (and insured) 1st Class Mail.
I will scan them and return them to you also using any mailing method you prefer. I will return the scans on a CD or DVD as total image size dictates.
Digitized images can always be e-mailed back or posted to my site for download if you need a quick turn-around.
I use an HP G4050 flatbed scanner with the negative/slide attachment.
The G4050 flatbed scanner is well suited for scanning prints up to 11 x 17 in size.
The maximum hardware resolution is 4800 x 9600 dpi. Variable through interpolation to 999,999 DPI.
Images larger than than the size of the flatbed can be stiched together via software.
A 2400 DPI scan of a 35mm negative or slide can result in a 24 megabyte uncompressed TIF file. Various image film formats, scan resolutions, and output quality settings can result in vastly different file sizes.
A 300 DPI scan of a 11x17 print image easily will require 11 megabytes if storage space on a hard drive.
Output from scanning can be in many graphic formats. Scanning of documents goes are usually saved in the TIF format to avoid any color loss. I can then convert the outputted TIF into PDF if required. No additional charge for the conversion.
