SCANNING

Make sure that your scanners glass is clean from dust and fingerprints as these will show up on your finished scan. In your scanners software select the following. 300 dpi/ppi. Please make sure that when scanning, all scanner enhancements are switched off or unselected. Also make sure it is set to colour, even for black and white.

Once you have your finished scan, save it to your computer as a Jpeg, Raw, Tiff file at the lowest compression possible.If you do have trouble sending your file, you can use We Transfer .This is a free to use no information needed website which will do it for you. There is also a website called Dropbox which is also free to use , where you can upload your files and then send the link to us to access them.

NO SCANNER

Most high street printing stores will scan your photo’s onto a disc or memory stick which can then be uploaded to your computer and emailed to us.

DIGITAL CAMERA

Another method which is used alot when using rare documents and photographs, is to use your digital camera.Place the photograph on a flat surface in good light with a plain background preferably white or black, turn the flash off and take a few photographs at the cameras highest resolution and in colour mode. Once you have done this you can transfer them to your computer and select the best one to send.
