Photo Scanning Services
Our families have been collecting print photos for generations. They are passed down and often packed away. They are usually forgotten until we stumble across them looking for something else.
When we find them, we remember how much we love going through them and reminiscing about the past and remembering the good old days.
Then we call a family member or friend to talk. We love to easily share these precious moments with them but having them in print form makes it a challenge. Sometimes we take pictures of them with our phones and email them. Other times we just pass them out. But we want to share them easily with others - and even on Facebook or Instagram.

How to choose your resolution:
Scan resolution is expressed in dots per inch or dpi. The resulting file of a scan is expressed in file sizes referring to total dots or pixels that are contained in a file. If you scan a 4 inch wide picture at 300 dpi, the result will be an image size of 1200 pixels. If we scan the same picture at 1200dpi, the result will be 4800 pixels. Etc.
Your printer at home cannot use any more than 300 dots per printed inch. Therefore, if you want to print a picture file that is 1200 pixels wide, you can print it at maximum quality up to 4 inches wide. If you try to print that file any larger than that, you start to give up quality. Professional printing services can usually do a great job with smaller files, but here is the best rule of thumb when deciding which resolution to choose:
- If you wish to be able to reprint your pictures the same size as they are now or only view them on a computer monitor, then 300dpi is sufficient.
- To print up to twice as large as the original, and/or leave room for cropping, choose 600dpi. If you want maximum flexibility, and more room for cropping before you print, choose 1200dpi. This will also yield prints up to 4 times the original's size.
- Prices are for loose photos in good condition. If photos are in albums, glued to backings, damaged, cut into non-rectangular shapes, or in other ways extra fragile, add $.25 each for those that need special handling.
We can also put your pictures in a DVD slide show with music, titles, etc. for a true keepsake family history production.
