Please note that if you have both a negative and a photographic print of that negative, it is always best to send us the negative to be digitized. That insures that you will have all off the detail of the original picture in your digital file, without the losses that can occur when the negative image is processed to make a print. Many automatic photo processors apply automatic "corrections" to prints that are actually distortions of the original image. By scanning the negative, you will recover any detail that was lost due to a poor printing process.[Back to Top]
Photo album digitization can be done in one of two ways:
The cost for each page scan is $2.10, or $3.40 for large format albums (more than 11" high); the cost of adding the images of each photo on the page is an additional $0.35/image, regardless of the image size. Premier Service adds $0.50/image in each case.
Filmstrip digitizing is done non-destructively; that is, we do not cut or modify the original filmstrip in any way. Image capture from filmstrips is $0.95/frame; for Premier Processing add an additional $0.50/frame. We can also create integrated slide shows for filmstrips that came with or without an audio track (usually on a cassette that runs with the filmstrip with audible "change" indicators). For more information on those options please contact us directly: firstname.lastname@example.org[Back to Top]
All prices quoted above are for the conversion of your images into digital files. The cost of the media to hold your data is in addition to the scanning charges. The best media for your files will depend on the total size of your image library, and your personal preference.
We offer several options for loading your data: Standard DVDs (4.7 GB capacity, $6.00 ea.), Dual Layer DVDs (8.8 GB, $8.00 ea.) Blu-Ray DVDs, which range from 4.7 GB up to 50 GB, and cost between $8.00 - $15.00/disc, and flash drives, which start at $6.00 for a 4 GB drive ($8.00 for 8 GB, $12.00 for 16 GB; larger sizes are priced at time of order fulfillment).
Prices for larger drives will be quoted when your job is completed and we know what size drive would be needed. Flash drives are like lobster - prices vary greatly over time, and we base our charges on the price that is currently available.
Of course, flash drives have the advantage that they can be repurposed once you have downloaded your files - or, you can simply keep them loaded with your data as an additional backup, and a convenient way to have your files with you. Your flash drive will come with a convenient key tag that identifies the contents (and can be changed if desired).
If you have a preference for a particular file storage medium, you can indicate that on yourrequest/order form. If your initial choice is not practical due to the size of your data set, we will contact you to discuss alternatives.
Index Image Prints: To make it easier for you to organize and manage your digital photo archives, we distribute your pictures into a series of separate Folios (sub-directories), typically containing about 50-60 images each. Of course, you may specify another system for organizing your pictures if you wish.
Each of your photo Folio folders will include, at no extra cost, anIndex imagewhich shows thumbnail images of each photo in the Folio, together with its file name. You can print these Index sheets on your printer at home, or we can provide prints of these Index images at a cost of just a few cents per photo image (typically 50 - 70 per page):
|No. of Pages||Images*||$/page||Cap**|
|1 - 15||1050||$2.20||$32.00|
|16 - 35||2,450||$2.10||$72.00|
|36 - 75||5,200||$2.00||$148.00|
|76 & Up||Over 5,200||$1.95|
* The approximate number of images in a job at the maximum number of pages for that range. Smaller directories result in fewer images.
** The "Cap" is the maximum charge for pages in that quantity range. We do this to avoid a situation where a Customer would be charged more, for example, for 50 pages (50 x $1.70 = $85.00) than a case where the total number of pages was 51 (51 x $1.60 = $81.60).
The prices in the chart are for prints on plain 20lb bond paper. We recommend using plain bond paper, as photographic quality is not really an issue for this purpose. For printing on photo paper, add $1.30/page.
The Index prints you receive will be contained in an appropriate binder to keep them together.
We will recover the video files on a Mini-DVD disc and convert them to MP4 files at a cost of $24/disc. If there are no recoverable files on the disc, the only cost is for the return postage to send the disc(s) back to you.

Once you have your photos in digital form, you may still want to have some of them in the form of physical photographic prints. For example, you may have a special photo that you want to keep on your desk. Or, perhaps, the pictures you have had digitized were in the form of slides, or negatives, and you want to have some of them printed.
What ever the reason, we can provide a full photo printing service. For full details, follow that link.

† Print prices listed are for glossy or matte finish paper. Special finish papers are available, but typically involve an additional surcharge that is added to the cost of the batch of prints. Please contact us for more details.
* "Stereo Pair" prints are printed at a size that allows viewing them in 3-D without the use of a viewer. If you are not familiar with this technique, send a request for information to email@example.com. This price includes the Premier Service and Image Pairing charges described above.
** Volume pricing is based on the total number of prints of a given size in a job.
In most cases, you will probably not know which images you would like to have printed until after you have received your digitized files. Once you have decided which photos you want to print, all you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org[Back to Top]
Compare our prices to our competition for photos, and 35mm slides and negatives (the links are live, and will open in a new window). When making comparisons, note the resolution provided by the other services, and compare it to our resolution (for example, 4200 dpi for 35mm slides):

Note that if these companies do any post-processing, they use "Digital Ice" to "automatically" remove dust and dirt from the images. Automated solutions are a compromise at best. We hand-process all work for our Premier Service. The same is true for all adjustments made to images for color and exposure improvement.
Also, be aware that many of these companies will not touch slides with metal or glass mounts. They will add substantial additional charges if your slides are in carousels or projector trays. We accept all types of mounts with no additional charges. We accept slides in carousels or trays with no additional charges.
When talking to other companies, you should ask them if they will provide personalized service without extra charges - or whether they will at all. For example - will they preserve the way your slides, negatives, or photos are organized? Will they transfer the important information written on containers about the contents? Those are things we do. We offer a personalized "boutique" service, but we are still able to handle large orders (consisting of thousands of items).
For a comparison of our work with what large commercial companies produce, see ourCostco comparison and ourWalmart comparison.
Most restorations range in cost between $20.00 - $30.00. Restoration is an art form, and results cannot be guaranteed, but your satisfaction is. Once we have restored your photo(s), if you do not wish to purchase the resulting image(s), then you owe us nothing, and we will simply return your original material.[Back to Top]
When we have completed the processing of your images, we will send you an invoice through PayPal. You can pay this invoice with a credit or debit card, without having a PayPal account of your own. Once your payment has been received by PayPal, we will ship your materials and data files to you, or if you are local, make arrangements with you for a delivery appointment.
