Long, long ago, before selfie sticks came along, before the iconic V-J Day Kiss in Times Square was photographed, even before smile-for-the-camera was invented, print photos were a part of everyday life. Since the 1800s, we’ve been documenting our lives through images. The earliest photographs weren’t printed with the glossy or matte paper options we are familiar with today. The images were printed on materials like metal which had been coated with silver chloride, or glass, or various fabrics. As photo technology improved over the decades, color options changed as well. Black and white photos and sepia (brown-tint) images eventually gave way to full color prints.
No matter what material or what color, Legacy Kit can digitize your Photos, Slides and Negatives! It’s easy. Just pull out those crumbling, dusty old boxes that have been hidden away and almost forgotten. As soon as your Legacy Kit arrives, Pack 30 of them into each of the included bags (or Ziplocs if you run out!), and drop at your nearest UPS location! We’ll take over from there, digitizing all your photos by hand and shipping your originals and digital images back to you in a jiffy! Make sure to upgrade at checkout to optional Thumb Drives! This will get all your digital images loaded onto an easy to use Flash Drive, making sharing and uploading a breeze!
We use the highest quality scanners to give you a stunning digital image of your print, slide, or negative. We can scan any size up to 8.5x11, even oddball sizes like 3.141592653589793238462643…wait a minute, that’s pi. Although, if you have a circular photo, we can scan it!
Wouldn’t it be nice to reclaim all that closet, attic, or basement storage space for other priceless treasures?! Not only will digitizing your photos free up some space for you, it will also prevent the photos from degrading further over time. Your one-of-a-kind pics aren’t doing any good tucked away. Think of the social media opportunities you are missing! Once we bring your photos into the digital age, sharing them will be easier than ever. Of course, there are those moments that are just too precious to post, tweet, or blog. You can share these directly with your friends or relatives, allowing you to privately enjoy these tender memories with the people you love. Just make sure to upgrade at checkout to optional Thumb Drives! This will get all your digital images loaded onto an easy to use Flash Drive, making sharing and uploading a breeze!
There is nothing that brings us more joy than bringing people together through memories and shared history.
Perhaps you’ve been carefully storing your negatives for years. You are prepared if an important photo gets lost or destroyed. Or maybe you are waiting for the day that you have the time to print and put into albums all one hundred darling pictures of Danny and Gracie splashing in their kiddie pool in the backyard of your first home. Well, that day is today! Let us take those negatives and produce high resolution digital images from them and put them into digital folders. We can get beautiful images from 35mm Slides, medium or large format negatives, Oversized 2.25'' Slides as well as those 3D Slides you don’t have the viewer for anymore!
Schunck, shunk. Or was it more like pflick, plick? Remember that sound the slides used to make on your old Kodak 4200 Carousel Slide Projector that stopped working years ago? Bring your slides into the 21st century, and you can relive all the fun of viewing those photos with your friends and family.
If you have spent years orchestrating the perfect visual presentation of your lifetime memories, you need not worry. Simply use a rubber band to bind 30 slides together in the correct order and place in one of you photo bags. These slides will be scanned in order and put in a folder corresponding to the label on the bag, preserving the chronology of your stories. We pride ourselves on being one of the only media conversion firms that can keep the same organization. That way, when you turn your digital images into a slideshow, it's as polished as it was when your Kodak 4200 was in mint condition!
Does your kitchen junk drawer look more organized than your box of slides? That doesn’t intimidate us! We can handle any slide project. Even if your slides don’t start off tidy or organized, we’ll make sure they end up that way. We will put your slides in numbered folders on the data disc or optional Flash Drive.
When you get the digital files back, you might just discover that your inner organizer wants to come out and play. You’ll find it’s incredibly easy to look at all the photos and organize them using your computer. Clicking, dragging, labeling, and making new folders is so much easier once you have your slides, photos, and negatives digitized. We always recommend getting your entire collection digitized first, then you’ll have everything together before you decide how to organize them on the computer: by date of the event, or by family members that might want copies, or by holidays and celebrations. It’s completely up to you. When you have all of your images on easily accessible computer files, you won’t have to skip holiday or family dinners at the the dining room table because it’s stacked with three-foot high piles of photos and boxes of slides and negatives that need to be sorted and labeled!
For scanning slides, we use the highest quality scanners so we can produce stunning high-resolution images while also letting those natural colors pop. Once we digitize all of your slides (hundreds? thousands? we can handle everything you have!) Make sure you upgrade at checkout to as many Flash Drives as you need! That way, all your family and loved ones can have a copy of Papa Tom's priceless 35mm Slide collection!
Of course, we’ll return your original photos, slides, and/or negatives to you after we digitize them. Although, we expect you’ll be so pleased with the beauty and simplicity of the digital files that you’ll have no use for them any longer. One of our clients, made a lampshade using 238 of her 35mm slides that we digitized and returned to her. When it comes to creative ideas, the sky’s the limit! So let us tackle the task of preserving your important memories, and you can get busy setting up your Etsy account or planning that party to share all of your digital photos with family and friends that haven’t seen them in years.
