Our Slide Scanning Process

For 35mm slides and 110 slides we use high end Nikon slide scanners. For other slide formats we use high quality, commercial grade flatbed scanners.

Our Nikon scanners and flatbed scanners use Digital ICE technology to ensure the best image quality of your scanned slides. Digital ICE uses infra-red (IR) light to detect dust particles and minor scratches prior to scanning and then during scanning, corrects the image based on the defects detected by the IR. Digital ICE also restores and corrects color, reduces film grain noise, and optimizes contrast & exposure of the scanned slides.

Our skilled slide scanning technicians then inspect each image for quality, rotate, crop and remove red-eye to bring new life to your old slides. Once your slide collection meets our quality standards it is put onto a DVD, flash drive or hard drive to be shared at your leisure. Click Here for Slide Scanning Prices.

 

Slide Scanning ServiceSlide Scanning Resolution

An advantage to using our slide scanning service is the resolution capabilities we offer. Resolution is one of the biggest factors that determine the quality of scanned digital images. Resolution is the amount of detail a digital file holds. It is measured in Dots Per Inch (DPI). Therefore, the higher the resolution, the sharper the image and higher the quality will be. Ultimately giving you more capabilities. All slides are scanned at a minimum of 2000 DPI and up to 4000 DPI.

2000 DPI– Slides scanned at 2000 DPI are perfect for viewing on your computer, device or TV and sharing online or emailing. At this standard resolution you can create printed photographs up to 5″ x 7″ In order to print at a larger size and have a sharper image we recommend scanning at a higher resolution.

3000 DPI– Slides scanned at 3000 DPI result in sharper images that capture more detail. At this resolution you will have the ability to print your images up to 11″ x 14″ at the same original quality.

4000 DPI– This is the highest resolution available for transparent film and yields the highest possible quality and captures the most detail possible. Slides scanned at 4000 DPI will allow you to create prints of at least 11″ x 17″ in size and use professionally in any capacity.

What people are saying about Smooth Photo Scanning Services

“Smooth Photo Scanning converted about 2,000 of my old 35mm slides to digital. They even picked them up at my house and dropped them back off when they were done with the files on a flash drive. I was very happy with their professionalism and quality.” – George M.

“I had an excellent experience with Smooth Photo Scanning. My father and I went through a +30 year old storage unit and found many of old photo albums, slides and film from his youth in the 50’s and 60’s. Brandon and his team carefully scanned and replaced all the images from the photo albums (not an easy task as some images were smaller than a credit card) as if they were never touched. They sorted out all duplicates and put them aside. It really was a job you know they did with care and respect. They will be offering the images to be downloaded through a link soon, which will be amazing to make sharing easier with family and friends. Would 1000% use Brandon again for any scanning job. They are very dependable and trust worth and best of all, fantastic pricing! Thank you.” – Kathy W.
