Preserve Your Photos For Generations To Come

What Does DPI Stand For?
DPI stands for dots per inch. DPI is used to adjust the amount of detail of the scan when converting your paper photo to a digital image. The DPI scan relates to the final pixel size of the scanned image.

What Resolution Should I Scan My Photos At?
Scanning your photos at 300 DPI is good for digital archiving, viewing on a computer and making prints up to 5”x 7”.

Scanning your photos at 600 DPI is best for digital archiving, viewing on a computer, getting more detail and making prints up to 8”x 10”.

Customer Alert: Many companies offer a very low scanning price which may look attractive but what you are really receiving is a raw scan of your image. No color adjustment, fade restoration or exposure adjustment.

If you are going to go to the trouble of having your photos scanned for archival purposes make sure your photos will receive basic corrections. The old saying still holds true – you get what you pay for.
