Negatives to Digital

Negative Film Scanning 35mm, APS (Advantix) & 120 to USB, DVD or the Cloud.

Scanning your old photo negatives can be time consuming and expensive if not performed by professionals.

Let Something Different help you preserve those precious memories for you. All you need to do is pick the scanning resolution.

Color negatives are susceptible to color shift over time which can effect some or all parts of a frame and is not easily repairable; hence it is is very important to scan to digital file as early as possible.

We scan negatives of all sizes including 35mm, 126, 110 and all Medium Format sizes. Please contact us for Medium Format pricing as it is dependent on size.

Our standard resolution scans from 35 mm negatives will deliver a jpeg file whose size is around 4.5 megabytes (1500x1000px) when opened (uncompressed). The digital files we return to you are perfect for sharing your pictures digitally, making new prints (up to 4×6 in), for inclusion in video and presentation projects and as digital backups.

We offer a high-resolution scanning option. The high resolution option will deliver a jpeg file whose size is around 17 megabytes (3000x2000px) when opened (uncompressed). This is the best option to produce large prints 12×18″ and above.

The difference between a standard resolution file and a high-resolution file has nothing to do with the quality of the scan but exists only in the size of the file we deliver. Because high resolution scans can take up to three times as long to complete, the charge is higher than the standard resolution scans.
