How is this possible? We are engineers with the backgrounds needed to create new scanning equipment which takes advantage of......
Group the photos or slides into stacks, and secure these stacks with rubber bands, baggies, envelopes, cling wrap or aluminum foil in such a manner that they are held tightly together.
Slides are particularly problematic, as it’s their nature to escape and travel about inside boxes. If you have a stack of slides held together with rubber bands that would come apart if you dropped it on the floor, it’s probably going to come apart inside the box during shipping. Limiting stacks of slide to 4 inches high and using two rubber bands to secure them works well. Slides are susceptible to damage if they are loose inside a box.
Photos travel safest in plastic bags, envelopes, or stacked up and held together with a rubber band. Most photos are not damaged by rubbing against each other during transit. However, some very old paper photos can be damaged in this manner, so use your best judgment. For these very old photos, a piece of padding between each photo ensures safe shipping.

You will be able to change everything on a digital image that has anything to do with how your images are displayed on your computer. However, how your computer sorts and displays your images is determined by the setting on your computer, not the settings on the image.
Up to a certain point, DPI (Dots Per Inch) has a powerful influence on the quality of your digital image. A good, sharp original will look fuzzy if the digitizing process uses too low of a DPI setting. This is because the lower DPI setting makes the sharp edges slightly jagged, and we see that as out of focus. Therefore the DPI of the scanning process should be equal to or greater than the grain size in the original.
Don't just take our word for it!
They were ready to answer any email I sent within minutes.....
Had these folks scan 4500 of my dad's and grandfather's slides, dating back to the 50s. They were ready to answer any email I sent within minutes, took care of everything fast, and the scans look amazing. Their website is a little bit old-fashioned, but don't be fooled, they are the best out there.
I am so thrilled with the service from start to finish....
I sent 2600 of my mom’s Kodachrome slides to DPSDave. They Were from 1951-1985. I have been so afraid to send these to any of the big labs for scanning.
A few of my photographer friends recommended this site. I requested the expedited service. My slides were a bit more of a challenge as they all had individual metal frames and were also in another sleeve as well.
The most fragile ones were from my dad’s time in Korea. I can’t believe how fast these were done. I got to see them right away via Dropbox. I am so thrilled with the service from start to finish. Great prices too. Highly recommend. Will use again.
I can’t imagine there is anyone out there better than this company....
Very knowledgeable. Great results on my nearly 6000 slides — some very old. Very quick turn-around. Quick with answers to my questions. I had them put on USB and wow have we freed up space! I can’t imagine there is anyone out there better than this company.
Step 1: Place Your order
There is no payment upfront, and this makes it even easier!
step 3: we get to work
when the box arrives, we log it into our database, and an email will be sent automatically.
It's nice to know the package arrived safely, but more importantly we're taking this opportunity to check the return address one more time, and to let you know when the digital photos are schedules to ship back to you.
step 4: we ship it back
The UPS truck shows up at our back door at 3:30
Our job is done, and the photos begin their trip back to you. In a couple of days, the UPS driver will arrive at your door with your box. Inside, you'll find your originals and a DVD or USB stick with your digital images.
