Our process    
  We offer two photo scanning options, raw scan and pro scan.  Raw scan allows you, the customer, to crop, rotate and color correct your digital images at home as you wish, and is usually recommended for folks with photo editing experience.  Pro scanning includes image rotation, cropping and color correction of all images.  Below is an example of a photo that has a raw scan, then a pro scan:

  Photo and scrapbook scanning  
  We scan of all styles of photo albums and scrapbooks. Most scrapbooks and many photo albums have the images glued to the photo album pages, which makes it nearly impossible to remove them without damaging the original materials. Because of this, we’ll never remove a glued item from its album page, but instead scan the entire album page and crop out the individual images in  post production.  In the end, you’ll have individual digital files for each image.
  Scanning resolutions  
  You have the choice of two resolutions when scanning your loose photographs and photo albums, either 300 PPI or 600 PPI. If you plan on having prints made larger than the original size then you should go with our higher resolution. Please speak with one of our technicians if you are unclear of what resolution may be best for you.
