35mm positive slide scanning service rates

Our scanning and transfer rates are as low as $0.32 per slide and are based on 2000dpi resolution, which is a recommended resolution for consumer slide scanning. Scanning consumer film slides at higher than 2000dpi does not produce better results. Ask us!

Higher resolution scanning is available for commercially produced 35mm slides. If you have professionally produced photo slides, we can preserve the original resolution by scanning at significantly higher resolution over 3600dpi.

* Minimum order for all services is $10 per type of medium

We offer same day service for all slide CD and DVD copy orders. All CD & DVD media is of archival quality. We advise to store digital image files on CD discs for the reason of disc longevity. However, if the number of images is very high, a DVD media could provide a more appropriate image storage solution.

Discount for non-profit and government organizations is available on request. Price of each CD or DVD disc will be the same regadless of the amount of digital slide data placed on each disc.

Note, if the film slides are damaged, they must be first repaired in order to be scanned. If the damages are minor, you can you a little glue to hold the slide frame together.

All positive film slides are scanned with dedicated high resolution film and batch film scanners to accommodate various order requirements and sizes. These scanners differ from universal flatbed scanners that use transparency holders to scan film. The dedicated scanners we use provide a higher image exposure latitude, higher resolution and more precise scanning overall.

Although film slides differ in the actual film viewable size, we can scan most of the slides and offer 100% coverage of the viewable film size.

Considering the resolution to scan slides to CD, DVD, PowerPoint presentations and digital files.

Scanning film slides to an optical disc as digital files provides an effective way to save fading film images. However, the scanning services generally give an option to select from different scan resolutions. And while one may think that a higher scanning resolution may provide better results, it’s not always the case.

When scanning slides to a digital file format, it is important to consider the origin of the film stock. If the film was a consumer grade type and shot on a consumer grade camera, then scanning the slides at 2000dpi would produce optimal results, as the consumer grade film and lens resolution provides about 1500dpi at best. Therefore scanning film slides at resolutions higher than 2000dpi, will cost more and produce unnecessary large files without a real benefit.

When film slides are produced by commercial photographers, they may have a significantly higher effective resolution and gamma definition and will benefit from scanning resolutions above 2000dpi. We recommend scanning commercially produced film slides at resolution of 3600dpi or above.

CD & DVD Slideshows from slides

Besides providing our customers with scanned slide images on a CD, we also produce digital CD or DVD slideshows for business use, personal events and parties.

Note that there are additional costs associated with producing a CD or DVD slideshow. Please call us to get a quite quote!

Music tracks can be added to CD & DVD slideshows and edited for the slideshow playback duration.

Please see photo DVD Slideshow Service page for more information.
