Negative Film Scanning is always better compared to printed photos as negatives have the best information and quality. Negatives are scanned at 1200DPI and for best results, 3000 DPI is preferred.
A 35mm negative’s dimensions are as shown in the picture above. It’s advisable to scan slides at 3000 DPI (In fact it’s SPI) so that the resulting image will have a 10 megapixels (“MP”) resolution. See the numerical example in the FAQ section to understand resolution. This gives a good print upto 13″ x 9″.
The answer is the side where there is a photographic emulsion. The shining on this side would be lesser. However, this is a crude and longer way of figuring it out. The best is to follow the numbering scheme while scanning so that the number is visible and this is the opposite side of the photographic emulsion.
Yes, we do scan those on case to case basis. Please contact us if you have negatives bigger than 35mm in size. You will not see the prices for medium and large format negatives listed on our price page as these are not common. Based on the quantity, color, or B/w, and condition we charge for the medium and large formats. Generally, for black & white medium format negatives, there would be a number of scratches that affect and which need to be removed manually.
It’s not possible to accommodate selective scanning from a negative strip at this point in time. For Photos, it’s a possibility. Either selectively the photos can be removed or can be marked in the album. However, for negative strips, we will be scanning the whole thing.
