Hi, I'm Paul Lawrence
The company was started after I had a discussion with my Father about copying and preserving the slides he had taken in the 60's and 70's. It occurred to me there was no affordable way to get copies of the slides and preserve them in a digital format. So DigiSlidz was born.
We are still going strong today and look forward to helping you with your requirements. Some good reasons why you need to scan your slides, negatives and photos now. Distribution to relativesKeep the originals and distribute copies. Gather together photographs, 35mm slides and negatives from your relatives and then distribute the album back to them either as a CD, DVD, USB drive or photos. No need to divide up the family photographs and everyone gets a full set of photos.
Disaster preparednessScanning and saving to CD or DVD media can provide a compact storage solution. Make more than one copy and distribute to relatives. The more copies that exist the more likely your pictures will survive any disaster. Scanned images that are stored on digital media can be stored in a safe location like a bank safe deposit box.
Preserve image quality before the original deterioratesThe longer your 35mm slides, negatives and photos sit around, the more likely they are to suffer serious degradation from fading, scratches, loss, or damage. If you have a 35mm slide, negative or photo that is rapidly fading, scan it now before you lose too much quality. We can scan with highest resolution and color depth possible and restore the picture. Plan for migrating the images every few years to a new format or media.
Reduce handling of original photos and 35mm slides and negatives to prevent wear and tearThis is a significant factor for museums and photographic archives, but should not be overlooked in family photograph collections. Repeated handling of photographs can easily rub-off penciled captions, for example. 35mm slides and negatives are even more susceptible to damage from fingerprints and moulds from oils on your fingers.
Make your images available for printing by future generationsAs long as a CD, DVD or USB drive exists and is readable then future family generations can print out the photos at the same quality as they were scanned. Do you have photos that are on negatives or slides that you want to put into a scrapbook or album?
Do you want to produce a digital scrapbook and don't know how to produce the digital images?
Do you have a lovely old family photo that has been loved so much it has become damaged or faded?
We can help you with all of the above.
