35mm Slides to CD/DVD:
begin with, we assess your material and your needs. On receipt of
your film, we call you to confirm safe receipt. To begin with then,
we dust each of them individually with a view to removing as much
of the surface debris as possible. Once we have completed this stage,
we then scan each of your slides one by one.
The resolution for this service is a 'medium resolution' which means
that unlike a typical high street chain, we will deliver a tremendously
larger and more detailed scan than a cheap low resolution scan and
even greater than a medium resolution scan. The benefit for you
is that the quality of the resulting image is greatly improved.
Once we have completed this stage, we can then output your images
to either a data
set of your images or a slideshow.
a fantastic way of viewing your slides on either a TV or your computer.
Typically, the images will fade in and out of one another every
five seconds. A menu
will include the slideshows complete with a title of your choice.
We can optionally add mood music should you like too! To view a
sample - click here.
The data version can be used to either make you own prints or for
example manipulate and enhance your images digitally thereafter.
Because we are scanning at such a resolution, you will benefit by
being able to undertake detailed changes thereafter should you like.
Finally, we invariably customise your dvd with your own text and
imagery to create that perfect finishing touch. At the end, it is
all checked for purpose and quality before being approved for despatch.
As for payment, this is only on completion.

Digital images are made up of pixels. The image itself is a matrix of
so many pixels wide by so many pixels high.
A 6 megapixel image, for example, roughly has a width of 3000 and a
height of 2000 pixels. PPI stands for Pixels Per Inch. PPI then is used
to describe how densely the pixels that make up an image are packed
within an inch.
A landscape requires more PPI since it may be very detailed. By contrast,
a typical portrait can get away with less initial PPI. Also, not all
cameras produce equal quality images.
stands for dots per inch. Confusingly, it often is used interchangeably
with PPI to describe the resolution of digital images/ scanners (which
produce digital images).
This is why there is much confusion since DPI refers to the resolution
of an output device such as a printer. With a common everyday inkjet
printer, DPI represents how many dots of ink are placed within the span
of a linear inch on your printed image.
Such printers use a limited number of coloured inks to produce the millions
of colours possible in a photograph. Printers vary in respect of how
many colours they employ. Some have three, four or even six or more.
To make allowances for the limited number of colours, each pixel of
the digital image is made up by mixing many tiny dots of ink together.
By way of an example, a 2400 DPI printer has 2400 dots of ink packed
together within an inch. If an image were 300 PPI, your printer would
use about 48 dots to make up one pixel from the digital image.
