Special photo services:
In addition to our specialty, photographic restoration and enhancement, we offer a limited range of other photographic services. We consider these of low priority though and delivery can vary from two to four weeks depending upon the service requested.
Archiving Transparencies or Photographs – Our service includes minor adjustments to brightness, contrast, color and tint. Any adjustment other than normal if needed or the image requires restoration or retouching we will contact you prior to any undertaking to allow you to authorize the additional service.
We scan your material up to 3200 DPI (dots per inch-resolution) which can vary depending on circumstances of the target image. To avoid a grainy image we recommend resolution for transparencies (slides) or negatives up to 600dpi and photo images up to 400dpi unless you specify differently. Upon request, we will categorize your transparencies or photographs in any order, chronologically, alphabetically etc. Titling the images can be accomplished per your instructions at a minimal fee per image. See pricing for details and archiving costs.
Converting Photographs to Art – With the wide existence of filters and photographic elements at our disposal, we can produce art deco effects, collages and about any other special effect imaginable.

Consulting with us prior to an undertaking may save disappointment and is well worth your effort.
We can also produce poster and jumbo sized prints from our or your creation. Average costs for this service are located on our "Pricing Page".
Photo Copying to Negatives – We can reproduce your photographs, color or black and white, to negative film for those who want to maintain the photographic integrity of the original. We work with high definition 35mm film specifically for this purpose and photograph thru non-glare UV protected material to insure the highest quality level possible.
We can produce prints from the copy negatives or just supply you with the finished film to reproduce yourself. From 35mm negatives, we recommend that the maximum reproduction be no larger than 8"x10" prints for best quality. Average costs for this service are located on our "Pricing Page”".

Scanning – Our scanners, calibrated daily, are individually reserved for a particular function in order to maintain the highest level of consistency.
