Equipment, Experience and Procedures

Image scanning like all other conversion and transfer services is a product of the equipment used, experience of the operator and the business and the procedures in place.

Equipment

We use the Nikon Coolscan 5000 and 9000 for slides and negatives and the Epson V700 for photo scanning. We’ve configured our Software with custom built PCs specifically for use with the equipment we use

Procedures

The need for good procedures can’t be overstated, it really is critical. One key to quality image scanning is consistency and this can only be achieved by following a clear, predefined checklist.

We’ve been in this industry for over a decade and know that we’ve developed a process which delivers the best, time and time again.

Experience

There’s no substitute for experience, not only with the person who handles your scan, but the business responsible for the job. DiskBank are a national company, committed to excellence in all that we do. We employ only the best technicians and know that we deliver the best results.

How to supply your images to us

In order to help us get the best results from your images, its best that you supply your originals facing the same direction, in the order you’d like them returned in.

If the images are contained in pockets or albums, please remove them before sending.

Every image scan we undertake includes the following:

  • Initial check and sorting of your images
  • Cleaning of dust, dirt and mildew if required
  • 4,000dpi scanning
  • Digital ICE, GEM, ROC enhancement where required
  • JPG or TIF format options
  • Manual cropping and rotation
  • Manual colour and exposure correction as required
