For photo prints, we scan at 600dpi on the Kodak Picture Saver Scanning System PS80. 600dpi is needed for printing a picture at the same size as the original or using in any photo project that involves printing. Please remember, this service is intended for social sharing, not archival storage or artistic representation which requires higher resolution and thus increased cost.
For 35mm slides, we use a SlideSnap Pro slide scanner, scanning slides at 2800 dpi using RAW format which improves our ability to adjust exposure and white balance on slides.
For negatives, we use an Epson V800 flatbed scanner which can scan up to 6400dpi.
All scanned images are encoded as JPEG images with a quality Q of at least 70. To see a comparison of various levels of JPEG compression please click here.
