AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR SLIDES SCANNED. Slides deteriorate with time. Scratches, dust, and discolouration will show up on your scan. Slides that looked good in your carrousel projector can end up over or underexposed in digital format.
WHAT I OFFER: Slide digitizing includes initial compressed air cleaning to remove dust, scanning @1200 or 2400 dpi using Digital ICE scratch/dust correction, cropping,proper rotation, colour & exposure correction, and spot removal where possible using Adobe Lightroom 5.0. All Work is done on each slide individually (not automated as is most often the case online). Final DVD includes: 1) images in original uncompressed tiff file format (files are approx. 25 MB) so you have the highest quality scan available to you for any future use. 2) large jpeg files (appropriate for screen display or enlargements) approx. 1MB 3) and small jpeg files (appropriate for emails) approx. 200 KB
Prices: 1 -100 images $0.75 per image for the first 100 images 101-300 images $0.70 per image for the next two hundred images 301-500 images $.60 per image for the next two hundred images
BASIC SCANNING IS ALSO AVAILABLE including only compressed air cleaning for a base rate of $0.50 per image. Can burn to CD or supply your own thumb drive. Do your own cropping and corrections later!
