Digitaliseren Dia's, Foto's en Negatieven


Do you have (old) photos, negatives, slides and photo albums? Often, they're forgotten and left lying around somewhere and thus these precious memories can't be shared with the rest of the family. And even photos / cards are subject to loss of quality.

By digizing this material you're creating a safe back-up of the precious memories. Also, by transferring them into digital files, you can easily share them with your family and frieds via e-mail or social media. And you can make a new (digital) photo album, which comes in handy if you have more than one child.

We scan your slides, photos and negatives professionally. If the boxes, magazines, maps, etc. in which you deliver your slides, photos or negatives, have titles or dates, we'll use those names and/or dates and keep them in that specific order.

You can calculate the cost yourself with our easy-to-use calculator.

Equipment

We use professional scanners. For 35mm slides and negatives, we use the Nikon Coolscan 5000ED. The slides and negative scanners have a resolution of 4000 DPI. Scratches, fingerprints and damages will automatically be removed from slides and negatives with the help of the Digital ICE4 Advanced™ automatic correction function. Our scanners are tested best in many independent tests.

File formats

We can provide all formats. We normally use JPEG format. This gives a very good quality while the files don't get too large. We can also provide the photos in TIFF, which is an uncompressed file. This format is also used for professional printing. This format is very large: if you digitize a miniature slide scan in 4000 DPI to a TIFF file it will be about 70 MB big!

Negatives on a strip/roll (24×36mm)

We can scan negative strips (about 5 or 6 negatives on a strip) and negatives on a roll. We can even scan negatives that have been cut from a strip or roll. All photos will be corrected for colour, light, dust and scratches. The infra red correction of dust and scratches doesn't work as well with black and white photos as it does with colour photos. Dust will always be removed by fine brushes.

The negatives will be transferred to digital (positive) photos in JPEG format. You can give every series of negatives a title and we will use this for the folders. All photos (files) get a serial number.

The price is per photos and all photos on a strip (with at least 2 photos) will be scanned. If you only want to have aspecific negative on a strip scanned, or if you have a strip with only one photo, we ask a surcharge of € 0,39 per photo.

Photographic plates

It started in the 20s/30s of the 19th century. In the 30s of the 20th century photographic plates faded from the consumer market until they were completely gone in the 1990s.In the end the were only used by the professional astronomical community. Photographic plates usually measure 13 by 9 cm. More information can be found at Wikipedia.

The photographic plates will be transferred to digital (positive) photos in JPEG format. You can give every series of plates a title and we will use this for the folders. All photos (files) get a serial number.

The price is per photo.

APS Negatives (16×30mm)

Advanced Photo System (APS) negatives are on strips (of 16×30mm) and are always in the cassettes with which they were in the photo camera. The APS rolls exist in lenghts of 15, 25, and 40 images. Our scanner opens the cassette, automatically rolls the film in the scanner, scans, furls and puts it in the cassette. The pictures will always be corrected on color, light, dust and scratches.

If the APS cassette cannot be read automatically (for instance a bend in the negative), the negative strip will be taken out of the cassette and scanned by hand. For such a defect cassette we charge €0,50 extra per photo.

The negatives will be converted to digital (positive) photos. You can give a name per provided cassette and we will use this name as map name on the CD and DVD. We scan to JPEG format and all photos will get a follow up number in their folder name.

The prices is per image. We always scan a whole cassette.
