We can convert your old 35mm slides, including Kodachrome and Ektachrome, to fresh digital images with our number #1 rated slide scanning service.

Glass mounted slides

To achieve the best quality scan we recommend that glass slides, i.e film frames held between two thin sheets of glass, are scanned without the glass in place. This is due to the dirt, dust and oil residue that builds up on the inside of the glass sheets and scanning through these defects will reduce the quality of the scan. The examples below show a slide scan through dirty glass and the same slide with the glass removed.

35mm slides

Scan with glass removed

35mm slides

Removal and refitting of the glass is a time consuming process and is therefore charged at 45p per slide.

Please note: This is an optional service, but it is highly recommended for glass mounted slides in order to achieve the best results. Not all glass slides can be dismantled as some are glued and sealed, such slides will be cleaned and scanned through the glass as regular slides.

35mm slides

127 "Super slides"

127 "Super slides" are the same 2" frame size as regular 35mm slides but with a larger viewing aperture (opening) of 40mm x 40mm, as opposed to 35mm x 24mm for regular 35mm film.


In order to capture the whole image they have to be scanned separately using a medium format film scanner at a cost of 80p. If we find any 127 "Super slides" within your 35mm slides, we shall amend your order to include scanning these as 127 "Super Slides". If the value of your order increases significantly we shall let you know.

Alternatively, we can scan them as regular 35mm slides, but you should be aware that a considerable portion of the image will be lost.
