Read the useful information about our Negative film scanning service:


  • We do not scan parts of film strips, each strip must be scanned in full.
  • Each strip must have a minimum of 2 images on the strip. Single images can be scanned but not using our bulk system. Single cut images are scanned on different scanners which require more time so are charged higher per image. Please email or call to discuss single images. Any single cut image sent in with incorrect service ordered (i.e. part of a bulk order) will unfortunately be returned un-scanned.
  • We scan everything we receive, if you do not wish for images on a strip to be scanned then please cut strips down to a minimum of two images. Sending us a list of images numbers to be scanned is not accepted, we scan everything.
  • We can scan Negatives, Positives and Monochrome 35mm negatives all at the same price.
  • Any additional images scanned will be charged for and any over payments will be refunded.
  • We do not pre-count images, we scan all images sent to us, our charges for 35mm negative scanning are per image and not per strip.
  • It is your responsibility to check that the films you send into us are the ones you have ordered for scanning, variations with film will be charged/refunded according to our website prices for the correct film type. If in doubt please check our film guide page.
  • Processing – Your film must have been processed before we can scan it, we do not carry out dark room processing.
  • Image order/Grouping- Due to the way we scan slides and negatives we cannot guarantee any pre-set orders of images or grouping, we will do all we can to stick to an obvious order however there are many influences that can change this, for example some images may need to be scanned again due to dirt levels or scanning incorrectly. In general 35mm negatives are scanned in good order and grouping if provided to us in a good order, however we do need to point out that this is not a guarantee. We advise that the best way to put images in a particular order is to rename/re-order the images in digital format when you receive them back from us, It’s a lot easier when you can see the full image on your PC screen. If negatives are grouped in small groups less than 25 images then there is an additional image grouping charge per group folder.
  • Returned order of originals – As noted above we use bulk process scanners so cannot guarantee that we can keep your films is any particular order for their return, we will of course do the best we can to keep to any particular requests however with the way our scanners operate it may not always be possible.
  • Any variations on quantities sent in for scanning can be either invoiced or refunded before shipping.
  • Card Mounted/Film protection Film –Please remove any stickers or mounts attached to the negatives – additional fees may be charged to remove these. Films should be in sleeves or loose.
  • Numbering – Images and folders are automatically numbered using our scanner system. If you wish for images or folders to be renamed we advise that you carry out this yourself once you receive your images back as you know the images better than anybody so can correctly name them, we can do this for you but due to the additional time it takes and the possibility of errors we do not like to take on this task, if we are requested to change folder names there will be a surcharge per folder or image and it must be pre-arranged and paid for prior to any orders. Simplest thing to do is to leave the numbering to our system. We will label envelopes with numbers which correspond with your digital folder numbers so you can cross reference any titles.
  • Infrared (IR) images – We can also scan IR film, you will receive the image in IR without any attempt to colour correct.
  • If you have any specific requirements for your images, i.e. they need to be a certain file size or dedicated colours then we always recommend you use our free trial service before sending any orders. This way we know exactly how you want your scans and you know exactly what you are getting as making changes after an order has been processed is not possible.
  • * DX code – Many films DX code can not be read due to many factors such as incorrect cutting, dirty film, incompatible format. We will use the DX code image ID where possible but when not available images will be numbered automatically as scanned by our scanners.
  • Dirty Film – We avoid touching any film or negative images, we use air blowers to remove surface dust but if the slides are dirty or sticky we cannot remove this and it may be visible on the scans. We use top of the range scanners and digital ice software to reduce the amount of dust/scratch marks on the digital image but we can not 100% guarantee that all marks will be removed, basically the better quality your originals the better results you will get, do remember that film is static and attracts dust. Monochrome images tend to be slightly worse for this effect due to the digital ice software no being available for monochrome images. Most of colour images come out without any noticeable marks, monochrome usually come of good too. We can attempt to remove this using our Photo Restore Service.

*Dust removal can never be 100%, it’s all down to how the original material has been cared for and stored over the years, our process uses high end air compressors and top of the range software however without liquid cleaning the film it will never come out 100% dust free, some images fair better than others. We do not offer a liquid clean of the film as this can damage the film. Most negatives scanned come out very well with our dust removal technique. As with all dust removal systems the image will be slightly less sharp due to the process, if you do not require dust removal then please let us know, we always recommend dust removal as the quality loss is minimal.
