Photo scanning service highlights
Photo to CD scanning service - when photos are scanned to an archival CD media, this service provides highest quality digital picture files that can be used for all required purposes, including photo re-printing, CD and DVD slideshows creation, web publishing, multimedia presentations, photo sharing, PowerPoint presentations and high quality digital photo manipulation.
Photos to DVD scanning service - when photos are scanned to DVD media, they can be either placed on a DVD as digital files or turned into a DVD slideshow to view on large screen presentations or a TV screen. Scanning pictures for the purpose of using them as a DVD slideshow is the best use of DVD media. However, if you need to preserve the original quality and resolution of scanned images, we recommend scanning photos to CD (archival media) as digital files. You can always make a DVD slideshow from the pictures that were placed onto a CD disc.

About photo scanning service and service options
Photo scanning services are generally used to digitize pictures that were printed on a consumer or a professional grade paper. These digital photo files are placed on CD and DVD discs, usb storage devices, used for PowerPoint presentations, web publishing and design, restoration and photo printing and enlargements.
Scanning printed photos to CDs, DVDs and other digital storage devices are currently the best way to preserve fading of printed photographs. Scanning to hard drives, usb memory sticks and flash drives are good options. However, due to the nature of the re-writable digital memory, hard drives and flash memory may get corrupted with time, therefore it’s always a good idea to back up your photos to more than one storage device.
Although CD, DVD and Blu-Ray media are a fragile method of storage, when kept out of harsh weather environments (including sun and hot temperatures), will outlast other methods of digital file storage.
Scanning photos to archival quality CDs is considered the best option, because the CD’s optical layer that contains image data is thicker and made of a more robust material than the one used on a DVD or Blu-Ray disc. The above is only applicable to optical writable media. When CDs, DVDs and BluRay discs are manufactured, they are produced by a different method then used for CD and DVD duplication.
When photos are scanned to convert to a digital format, it is important to consider the scanning resolution.
The best and most practical resolution to scan consumer grade photos is 300dpi. There is no need to go beyond of 300dpi because the consumer grade prints only provide up to around 250dpi of resolution for the best paper stock and printing quality. Therefore scanning printed photos at 600dpi for example would not result in better quality or resolution of scanned images, but instead will cost more and render unnecessary large files.
If the photos are professionally produced and printed for industrial, medical or scientific use, they may have a significantly higher resolution and definition and will benefit from scanning at higher resolution. We would recommend to scan photos by a commercial photographer and professionally printed photographs at 600dpi or more to preserve the available photo resolution and definition.
