300 DPI, 600 DPI, 1200 DPI…
What Should I Do?
Imagine this: You open your favorite photo box and find the images deteriorating. How do you save photos from fading? You know it’s important to act fast. The longer you wait, the more extensive and expensive the restoration work will be.
If you take action now, our photo scanning service can provide you with convenient, easy-to-share and use JPEG images for your beautiful, digital photo collection. This means you can share photos, movies and more easily on your computer, iPad and other devices – photo scanning at a variety of file sizes: 600, 1200, 2400, 4800 or even 9600 DPI.
What’s the difference between the DPI options? Which photo DPI do I need?
For most family snapshots, a 600 DPI scan will be more than enough. The photo file sizes are compact and the quality suitable for most every use. A typical 4”x6” photograph can be viewed on a 42” flat screen TV or reprinted as an 8”x12” print.
Sometimes, you may need a higher resolution for a photo enlargement, restoration or archive quality scan. Don’t worry about figuring out which DPI to select; our team of experts will guide you to the proper photo scanning resolution for your needs and budget.
Color photographs became affordable and popular in the late 1950s. By 1962, black and white was increasingly rare. Unfortunately, the dyes used at this time were not long-lasting and fading set in quickly. We are now beginning to see total color loss from the first color snapshots. Any photo older than 1990 likely has measurable color loss.
Black and white photographs are pretty hardy and, if properly stored, hold up for 75-100 years. But, the biggest problem is the backing paper, which is often heavily deteriorated by 75 years old. Even if the image is good, the cost for the special handling of the fragile paper can increase your scanning cost by 4-10 times. Scanning these photos as soon as possible will save you money.
There are so many benefits to scanning your family photos, we really encourage you to get started now.
