Slide Scanning

Your slides are in jeopardy. Minute by minute, even in the dark, they are changing colour, scratching, and possibly developing fungal stains. Slide scanning with Superfoto can save them:

  • Scanned and repaired by hand, one-by-one
  • High 10MP resolution allows for enlargements.
  • Safe, guaranteed. Door-to-door tracking, too.

Chances are, your old slides are some of the most precious things you have. So, when you send them off to a service like ours, you expect them to be treated carefully. At Superfoto, we understand that. We never run them through some automated correction process, where a piece of software guesses its way through a batch of your most important memories. With most services, that happens all the time.

We think there's a better way. Every single slide you send us should be examined by a highly-trained technician with a good eye and a terrific set of hands. That's why we've designed our service from the ground up around the idea of a technician individually processing and correcting your slides as needed. This way, you don't have to make a hard choice between being able to afford to preserve all your memories, and being able to preserve them well. At Superfoto, you can do both.

Essentially every slide we receive requires some correction for the effects of time since colour slides inevitably shift colour and scratch over time (unless you've stored them in archival-quality, sub-zero conditions). For every slide, we receive, we will manually perform:

  • Re-orientation
  • Cropping
  • Scratch and dust removal
  • Color correction
  • Red-eye removal
  • Other minor damage

In short, for our standard level of slide scanning service, a technician will spend approximately four minutes per slide addressing all of the problems above, and then some. In our experience scanning millions of slides, this almost always produces amazing quality, for just pennies per image. (Some slides may be so damaged they require our restoration service, but that's relatively rare).
