Why convert your images to digital ?

Having your films, slides and photos scanned and converted to digital images, not only preserves them before they deteriorate, but it allows you to view and share them using todays digital equipment, such as computers, Digital TV's, Digital photo frames, iPod's and smartphones. You can upload them onto Social Networking sites, such a Facebook or Twitter or share them with anyone you wish using an online photo album. The images can also be imported into Microsoft Powerpoint for presentation use and are suitable for use on high resolution projection systems.

Having your images scanned to digital allows you to distribute copies of the images to friends and family and can make a wonderful birthday, anniversary or Christmas gift for a family member or friend.

All items are scanned using high quality scanners that adjust the colours, brightness and contrast levels. Digital ICE4 is included on all colour slide and film scans to remove the majority of the dust and scratches resulting in a clearer image.

No job is too big or too small for us. We regularly handle small family collections of a handful of images to major digital conversions of many thousands of images from high profile publishing houses, museum archives, universities and various private organisations and charities.

All the images are returned as standard JPG files, exactly the same type of file from a modern digital camera. You can then use the images for any purpose, display or print. We can return scans of slides and films in uncompressed lossless .TIF format if you wish, for a small additional fee to cover the increased file size.

Photographs are scanned using dedicated Kodak photo scanners which have patented photo handling devices to handle your photos with care. Picture saving software also improves the image quality by checking and adjusting the colours and contrast levels. Our Premium photo scanning service scans each photo by hand using professional Epson flatbed photo scanners.

Our scanning resolution for 35mm films and slides is 4000 dpi, which results in files of around 8 - 12MB in size, depending on the image content and film size. Medium format films are scanned at up to 5300dpi using the latest Opticfilm 120 scanning hardware.

The CD or DVD we send you should be compatible with your home DVD player providing the player can handle JPG image files. Should your DVD player be incompatible with JPG images files, then we can create a special rolling DVD video disk for you.

We can also return your images on a USB memory stick, simply plug the stick into your computer to access the digital images. Some Smart HDTV's also have USB sockets that will allow you to display your images directly onto your TV.


Customer reviews

Steve
"Exposure 22 have scanned some 2000 of our 35mm slides and a small selection of photographs. I was aprehensive about sending away the slides as they represent treasured memories. Very pleased with the quality of the service and the finished images. Will be using them again in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending their services to others!

Faraz

"Fantastic quality scans of some very old photos! Most of them you can't even tell are scans and look more like photos taken from a digital camera. Exposure 22's output has exceeded my expectations by far and I would definitely use them again"

Laura
"It was a difficult decision to send off photos that were over 20 years old, hoping they'd come back. But the service from the team was brilliant. The updates along the way were very reassuring, and when I managed to input the return post code incorrectly on 2 occasions before realising, Exposure22 sorted out no problem and put up with my emails checking it was 'now ok'! I'd definitely use Exposure22 again, great quality photos, good turnaround time and very reasonable cost - Thank you!"

Andrew
"Amazing what you got out of my very old 110 negs!"

Eric
"I was very pleased with the service - as ever there is the worry that the photos arrive in good time and condition and are returned AOK. Once I have inserted the scanned photos into their albums I will package the next batch and send them off.

Michael - London
"These are easily the best scans I've ever had - very impressive. The price might give people the impression that they may not get high quality scans, but they'd wrong. These are first rate and you have followed my detailed instructions exactly. I will definitely be sending you more very soon. Thank you for doing such a good job. First rate and highly recommended!!"
