What can be scanned?

 Photographic prints must be at least 2.5x3.5 inches and no bigger than 8x10 inches. They must be un-mounted, not torn or bent and must be free of Post-it notes, tape, staples and adhesives. Photos that have been stored in adhesive albums (the ones with the clear peel away cover sheet), and thick Polaroid or Kodak instant prints, will not feed through the bulk scanner, these can still be scanned at additional cost 0.50p per image.

We can only scan loose prints so they must be removed from any albums. Sort your prints in the size order and we will take care of the rest!

If you have photo albums that you would like digitalised, we offer a photo album scanning service, where we will scan your albums and save the files onto  memory stick for you.
