Turn your favourite old photos into art


Posted on: Friday, 17 December 2010

At PiciScan we scan pictures. It’s kind of in the name.

What you do with your photographs, slides or negatives once they have been digitised is entirely up to you. One fantastic idea we have seen recently is this: print your favourite image as a canvas and hang it from the wall, taking pride of place in your living room or above a fireplace.

Some other scanning companies only scan your images at 600 dpi. At this resolution, there’s not much you can do with them except look at them on your computer. But, because at PiciScan, we scan photographs at 1200 dpi and slides and negatives at 2400 dpi, you can blow them up to quite large sizes and the pictures still retain their original ‘look’.

Another thing you probably won’t find from any other scanning business in the UK  – I say probably, because I’ve looked, hard, and can’t find one – is our free collection and return delivery service.

It’s easy. We send you a Mail pack from APC and a jiffy bag by First Class in the post. You securely pack up your slides, photographs or negatives for us to scan and give us a ring or send us an email when you’re ready. We then arrange for it to be collected, usually on the next working day. When it arrives with us, we get working on your order, pretty much right away, and APC deliver it back to you, complete with a personalised DVD with your digitised pictures.

We don’t just scan pictures, by the way. We also convert VHS, VHS-C, S-VHS, S-VHS-C and 8mm tapes to DVD as well.

Mark founded PiciScan in July 2010. He does all the scanning, designs the website and blogs about web design.

Box Sizing: Border-Box

Box Sizing: Border-Box

Posted: 24 March 2016

I first came across box-sizing: border-box when it cropped up in a temporary colleague's CSS. I found it pretty annoying when I picked up work that he'd started as it seemed to get in the way. This was because, as I said in a previous post on margin ...
