High resolution scanning

We scan your photos, slides and negatives at such a high resolution because we want to give you the highest level of detail that is reasonably possible.

The images below are taken from a small part of a 35mm negative that we scanned for Cumbria Industrial History Society. The images are subject to copyright.

600 dpi full-size

This is the full size of the image section, scanned at 600dpi.

This is the standard offered by some other scanning businesses.

It is not very detailed and few of the words on the sign are legible.

2400 dpi preview

This is just a thumbnail of the image section, scanned at 2400dpi.

This is our standard.

Already at this size, the hills and the fence post are more detailed.

Click on the image to see it full-size.


Below is a small preview of the full sized image from which the above sections have been taken...
