At Photoland we take our photo reproduction seriously.
All the work is carried out on-site, so your precious originals do not leave the store.
Over the years, we have converted thousands of photographic images to digital images, producing high quality results at affordable pricing.
Each item is individually scanned at 300dpi on an EPSON V700 PHOTO scanner.
The scans are supplied to you on a CD/USB, in JPG format, complete with an index print reflecting a thumbnail photo of each image. This provides a good quality scan, suitable for printing, storing and sharing.
This is a standard service and includes NO adjustments to the images. For old or faded prints that requires colour or density we recommend our Premium service.
Overtime photos can fade, yellow or discolour. All of this can be remedied. The remedial work is carried out sensitively and in keeping with the original. The Remedial work includes:
- We adjust levels, brightness & contrast
- We select scanning settings according to the type of paper the original print is printed on
- We scale the photo to the size required
- We select options such as “unsharp mask” in order to sharpen the image
- We adjust the colour as required
- We adjust the saturation as required
The scans are then cropped to the appropriate size for printing and/or supplied to you on a CD, in JPG format, complete with an index print reflecting a thumbnail photo of each image.
This is a premium service and includes FULL adjustments to the images. We recommend this service for old or faded photographs.Note: All processed work is retained for a maximum of 90 days.
