Digitaliseren Dia's, Foto's en Negatieven We scan your slides, photos and negatives professionally. We can transfer the scanned JPG files to a CD or DVD for you.
If you have chosen for a DVD we can also make
a finished presentation of the photos for you to play on a TV or beamer.

We transfer your images in sequence and in files onto the CD or DVD. If the boxes, magazines, maps, etc. in which you deliver your slides, photos or negatives, have titles or dates, we'll use those names and/or dates and keep them in that specific order.
You can easily calculate the costs with our calculator.

Technique

We use professional scanners. The slides and negative scanners have a resolution of 4000 DPI. Scratches, fingerprints and damages will automatically be removed from slides and negatives with the help of the Digital ICE4 Advanced™ automatic correction function. Our scanners are tested best in many independent tests.

File formats

We can provide all formats. We normally use JPEG format. This gives a very good quality while the files don't get too large. We can also provide the photos in TIFF, which is an uncompressed file. This format is also used for professional printing. This format is very large:: if you digitize a miniature slide scan in 4000 DPI to a TIFF file it will be about 70 MB big!

Complete picture show on DVD or Blu-Ray

Besides delivering individual photos we can make a photo show which is compatible with your DVD player or Blu-Ray player. A photo show has a title, transitions between the photos and background music. On a normal DVD the resolution is: 720×576. On a Blu-Ray player the resolution is 1920×1080 (also called 1080p).

Photographic plates

It started in the 20s/30s of the 19th century. In the 30s of the 20th century photographic plates faded from the consumer market until they were completely gone in the 1990s.In the end the were only used by the professional astronomical community. Photographic plates usually measure 13 by 9 cm. More information can be found at Wikipedia.

The photographic plates will be transferred to digital (positive) photos in JPEG format. You can give every series of plates a title and we will use this for the folders on the CD or DVD. All photos (files) get a serial number.

The price is per photo.

APS Negatives (16×30mm)

Advanced Photo System (APS) negatives are on strips (of 16×30mm) and are always in the cassettes with which they were in the photo camera. The APS rolls exist in lenghts of 15, 25, and 40 images. Our scanner opens the cassette, automatically rolls the film in the scanner, scans, furls and puts it in the cassette. The pictures will always be corrected on color, light, dust and scratches.

If the APS cassette cannot be read automatically (for instance a bend in the negative), the negative strip will be taken out of the cassette and scanned by hand. For such a defect cassette we charge €0,50 extra per photo.

The negatives will be converted to digital (positive) photos. You can give a name per provided cassette and we will use this name as map name on the CD and DVD. We scan to JPEG format and all photos will get a follow up number in their folder name.
