Scanning to CD

DS Colour's scanning to CD/DVD service enables customers to have a full roll of 35mm, 120 or APS scanned to CD. Alternatively, individual negatives, prints or slides can be scanned to CD/DVD. This can be done from colour negatives, black & white and also slide films. Each CD contains its own viewing software. Standard in-lab time is approximately 48 hours.

All scans are individually screen assessed density and colour corrected. We use top of the range Fuji Frontier scanners not consumer scanners available on the high street. This ensures that you receive the very best possible scan from your input source. All scans are in jpeg format.

Prices below are for Standard resolution 300 dpi 6mb file 1818 x 1228 pixel 35mm scans only. Please note these will show as 72dpi in programs like Photoshop but are scanned at 300dpi.

We do match prices. We will not be beaten on price.

Please note all our film and analogue services are fulfilled at our Didsbury site. Please send your films etc. along with our appropriate order forms to DS Colour Labs Ltd 720 Wilmslow Road, Didsbury, Manchester M20 2DW.


All prices are for mail order only and include VAT.
