Re: Scanners and Scanning Services


Yes, getting it done by professionals can be expensive.... You can do it yourself, sure.  But, what price do you put on your time?  Scanning is, well, quite boring, & labor intensive.  Clean.  Load. Wait. Unload.  Repeat.  Then rotate, crop, & do minor color corrections on each one.

I cofounded & run, a leading scanning service, and we have really good equipment (you can call us for details).   Since we do it all day every day, we have trained efficient staff & processes, & we can afford to use $30,000 machines to convert slides & negatives far faster, & better quality than you'd do yourself.    It costs 44 cents per image, but we run promotions, & also let you delete what you don't want post-scanning, no charge.

So, if you want to buy your own equipment & murk through it, by all means I hope it goes well.  I stay in business, though, precisely because of the many people who "intend" to do it themselves some day, but ultimately find it far better to use a little money to buy time, & let professionals perform this service for them.

Best Regards,

John @, co-founder & CEO
