Our Slide Scanning Process
All of your slides are treated as if they contained one of our own personal memories. Each slide is cleaned and scanned in the USA so you do not have to worry about your one of a kind slides traveling offshore. We accept slides in carousels, magazines, boxes or any other type of storage container.
As soon as we receive your slides at our secure scanning facility, they are labeled and logged into our order tracking system. From there, they are assigned to our experienced slide scanning technicians where each image is scanned in order on the highest quality slide scanning equipment available. All of our slide scanners utilize Digital ICE technology, which detects and removes dust particles and minor scratches during the digitization process.
Digital ICE also restores and corrects color, reduces film grain noise, and optimizes contrast & exposure of each of your scanned slides. Once we convert slides to digital, your newly created digital photos are inspected, cropped, rotated to their proper orientation, and auto-enhanced once again to bring a new life to your old slides. Finally, the enhanced images placed onto your deliverable of choice (CD, flash drive, or online download), ready to be enjoyed and shared.
Slide Scanning Resolution Options
An advantage to using our slide scanning service is the resolution capabilities we offer. Resolution is measured in Dots Per Inch (DPI) and refers to the amount of detail a digital image contains. The higher the resolution a slide is scanned at, the more flexibility you will have down the road. All slides are scanned at a minimum of 2000 DPI and up to 4000 DPI. Below is a description of each option as it relates to 35mm slide scanning (most common).
- 2000 DPI Converting slides to digital at this resolution is perfect for viewing on any device, from your computer to your phone or even your TV. At this resolution you can make photo prints of 5" x 7" without losing any quality.
- 3000 DPI Slides scanned at this resolution will capture more detail and result in sharper images. The scanned images are of a manageable file size and can used to print photos up to 11" x 14" without loss of quality.
- 4000 DPI The highest resolution we offer, scanning slides at 4000 DPI will capture the most detail possible. This resolution will allow you to use the scanned images in any professional capacity and create photo prints of at least 16" x 20."
What people are saying
about our Slide Scanning Services..
“I heartily recommended Smooth Photo Scanning. They scanned some family slides from the 1940s and 50s and VHS-to-DVD conversions. Rest assured that your precious memories are not shipped overseas, but everything is done in-house. Turn-around time is weeks, not months or even years!”
– Jeffrey G.
“I recently had Smooth Photo Scanning digitize over 300 of my father’s slides taken in the early 1960s and they came out beautifully. The color and clarity was perfectly captured. I would absolutely use their service again.”
– Brad H.
“We had over 400 family slides from my uncle who passed away. I didn’t want to lose these memories, and wanted to share them with my cousins and family at Christmas time. They did a great job-everyone loved the digital remembrance to have forever! I would highly recommend-excellent service and quality!”
– Linda C.
