How does photo scanning to digital work?

Getting your photos scanned to digital doesn’t need to be hard. We’re here to make it easy. Here’s the usual process:

  1. Bring your photos, slides and negatives into your nearest Camera House store for an assessment and quote. Photos will need to be removed from albums or frames, supplied to Camera House in acid-free envelopes or sleeves. We recommend gently cleaning photos to remove dust or debris. You can also provide us with information like names, dates and locations, to be used for cataloguing and future search requirements.
  2. The Camera House team will assess your photos and talk to you about the services you need, for example any additional editing (like colour enhancements) or any information for file structure creation.
  3. We’ll give you a quote based on the volume of photos, slides and negatives, and a timeline for how long the project will take.
  4. The Camera House team will scan and digitise your original photos, slides and negatives We can also organise the photos based on any supplied information.
  5. Once it’s done, we save your scanned photos, slides and/or negatives as high-resolution digital files. You can use these to order new prints, or share electronically with friends and family. Your original prints, slides and negatives will be returned to you in their original state.

Too easy, right?
