Photo scanning and photo archiving

Growing interest in genealogy and preservation of family history sparked a high demand for photo scanning, photo archiving and sharing of old family photographs and documents.

Sebastian Wintermute offers high quality photo scanning and archiving providing scans of unprecedented quality and retention of details, with the highest degree of attention given to preservation and safety of the original prints and transparencies.

Each photograph is scanned individually eliminating the risk of damage that may be caused by an industrial automatic muti-page scanners. All scans are manually color corrected and minor dust and scratches are carefully reduced without lowering image sharpness or quality.

To see the difference in quality of photo scans produced with professional high resolution scanners comparing to images produced by a common scanner used by many discount copy shops and photo service centers you can examine the two scans of the same photograph.

Both scans were made at 600dpi resolution.
The scan on the left was made with a common all-in-one printer/copier/scanner.
The scan on the right was made with a calibrated photo scanner. The photo scanner result is much sharper, has better color balance and saturation. Magnification shows even the smallest details while the other scanner blurred details.

Negatives and slides can also be scanned with the client receiving a CD or DVD containing high resolution files suitable for printing copies of originals as well as files to be archived, shared or used in video presentations. The images are suitable to be sent or shared by e-mail or used as illustrations on family websites or in genealogy and family history software programs.
