High Resolution Photo Scans of Film.

For the highest resolution RGB (Red, Green, Blue) film scans we recommend our Drum Scans. Our scanner will rasterize transparencies, and negatives at the highest quality possible. Using Photo Multiplier Tube (PMT) technology allows a full usable dynamic range of approximately 4.2 to 4.4; higher than the typical desktop scanners using Charge Coupled Device (CCD) technology. What this means to you is deeper shadow detail without the typical color breaks or gradient banding of inferior film scanning methods. Every image is scanned on its own merit. This means that we never use “global” corrections based on film type. Instead, we correct every drum scan on an image by image basis. We know your prized images are not shot under generic conditions, why should your scans be handled that way? To further enhance the quality of your film scan, all transparencies and negatives are oil mounted to the drum. This helps to remove dust and can actually hide small scratches and abrasions in the film, which saves you valuable retouching time.

Our attention to detail, giving close scrutiny to color fidelity, density, shadow & highlight detail, and overall sharpness truly makes this a custom scan.
If you need a high quality film scan that supports photographic output or large format printing, you can’t beat the high-resolution drum scans.[/donotprint]

Scan Sizes by Print Sizes (in MB)

For maximum print qualtiy we recommend a minimum of 300 p.p.i. at print size. As the ppi decreases, so does the print quality.  We suggest 150 p.p.i. as an absolute minimum for somewhat acceptable qualtiy.

The first and perhaps the most critical step towards the digital arena is scanning. But, with so many different types of scans out there, it is difficult to determine the best photo scanning service for your needs. It is frustrating to order a scan of an image for one project, only to find out that you need more resolution for a later project. Now you are back to the service bureau for another scan, and more delays. At Reed Art & Imaging we offer you the foresight to get the right type of scan that will work for you now and for future projects. 

If your needs are the ever demanding requirements of continuous-tone reproduction, our premium drum film scans are your best option.
