What do Digital Converters
customers think?

Thousands of people have trusted us with their memories already.
This is what they made of the experience...


Scan photos, negatives,
and slides onto DVD and digital.

Family photo albums are a treasure trove of happy (and sometimes embarrassing!) memories.

Keeping those great times alive gets harder and harder, as photos fade and tear over time.

Scanning your old photos is a surefire way to preserve their quality and all the good memories in those albums. We scan in 600 DPI resolution, which produces great quality scans for archiving, reprinting, and viewing digitally.

And if you’ve got images stored on 35mm slides, we can scan them in at 4000 DPI resolution. This is because slides store a huge amount of visual information, which we’re able to blow up into much larger images.

Our team of expert technicians use the highest-quality equipment to scan and convert your old photos and slides quickly, efficiently, and reliably.

Nothing beats seeing old memories remade for today



Q. What is the process of converting slides to digital?
Converting slides to digital involves scanning each slide with a high-resolution scanner, capturing the image in a digital format. We meticulously adjust settings like resolution, colour balance, and sharpness to ensure the highest quality. This process is time-consuming and requires specialised equipment and expertise. While DIY methods are available, they often result in lower quality due to less advanced equipment. Professional services like ours use high-grade scanners and software, ensuring a superior result.
Q. What makes Digital Converters the best choice for converting slides to digital?
Digital Converters stands out due to our high-quality equipment, expert technicians, and commitment to customer satisfaction. We offer a range of services tailored to your needs, from basic scanning to complete restoration and customisation. Our process ensures the safety and confidentiality of your materials, delivering superior results compared to DIY methods. Choosing us is not just about converting slides; it's about preserving your memories with the care and quality they deserve.
Q. Can you restore damaged or faded slides during the digital conversion process?
Yes, we can restore damaged or faded slides. This involves digital restoration techniques, where we correct colour fading, remove scratches, and improve clarity. This level of restoration is difficult to achieve with home equipment. Our professional slide digitisation service ensures that even aged slides are revived to their former glory, making it a more cost-effective and reliable option than attempting DIY restoration.
Q. What formats can I receive my digital images in?
We offer various digital formats such as JPEG, TIFF, and PNG. JPEG is great for sharing online and viewing on digital devices, TIFF is ideal for archival purposes due to its lossless quality, and PNG offers a good balance between quality and file size. Choosing a professional service like ours allows you to have your images in the format best suited to your needs, something not always feasible with home scanning solutions.
Q. How do you ensure the safety of my original slides during the conversion process?
We take the utmost care in handling your original slides. They are scanned by trained professionals using gloves to prevent fingerprints or damage. Our process involves strict protocols to ensure that each slide is returned in the condition it was received.
Q. What is the resolution you use for scanning slides?
We scan slides at a high resolution, typically between 4000 to 5000 DPI (dots per inch). This resolution ensures that the digital images are of high quality and suitable for both digital viewing and large print enlargements. Such high-resolution scanning is often not achievable with standard home scanners, making our service more advantageous for preserving your memories in the best possible quality.
Q. How long does it take to convert a batch of slides?
The time it takes to convert a batch of slides depends on the number of slides and the condition they are in. Generally, a batch of 100 slides can take anywhere from a few days to a week. Our professional service streamlines this process, ensuring efficiency without compromising on quality, a balance that's challenging to achieve with DIY methods.
Q. Can you convert very old or uncommon slide formats?
Yes, we have the capability to convert a wide range of slide formats, including older or less common ones. Our equipment is versatile and can handle different sizes and types. This is a significant advantage of using a professional service, as such capabilities are usually beyond the scope of home equipment.
Q. Is there a difference in quality between professional and DIY slide conversions?
Absolutely. Professional conversions typically yield higher quality results due to the use of advanced scanners and expert technicians. DIY methods often fall short in terms of resolution, colour accuracy, and detail preservation. Our service ensures that the digital images are a faithful and enhanced representation of the original slides.
Q. What is the cost of converting slides to digital?
The cost varies based on the number of slides and the level of restoration needed, but the base price for 1 slide is £0.90. However, using a professional service like ours is cost-effective in the long run, considering the quality of the results and the time and equipment required for a DIY attempt. Our pricing is competitive, and we offer up to 30% off for bulk orders.
Q. How do you handle colour correction and other enhancements?
We use advanced software for colour correction and enhancements. This process includes adjusting brightness, contrast, and saturation to bring the images as close to their original state as possible. Our technicians are skilled in these processes, ensuring a natural and faithful enhancement. This meticulous attention to detail is often lacking in DIY conversions, where software limitations and expertise can affect the final outcome.
Q. How do you handle privacy and confidentiality during the conversion process?
We take privacy and confidentiality very seriously. All our staff are trained to handle sensitive material with the utmost discretion. The digital files are stored securely and only accessible to the technicians working on your project. This level of security and privacy is a significant advantage of using a professional service like ours.
Q. What happens if a slide is too damaged to be converted?
In cases where a slide is too damaged, we will first attempt restoration techniques. If it is not possible to restore or convert the slide, we will communicate this to you and discuss possible alternatives. Our goal is to ensure that every feasible effort is made to preserve your memories, a commitment that might not be possible with DIY methods.
Q. Do you offer bulk conversion discounts?
Yes, we offer up to 30% discount for bulk conversions. The discount rate depends on the number of slides you wish to convert. Bulk conversion is a cost-effective solution for large collections, and it's an aspect where professional services offer significant savings compared to the cumulative cost and time of DIY methods.
Q. How should I prepare my slides for conversion?
We recommend that you gently clean the slides with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove any dust or debris. If they are in slide carousels or boxes, you can leave them as is. Our technicians will handle them appropriately. This preparation step is crucial for achieving the best scanning results and is an area where our expertise can guide you effectively.
Q. Can I request specific customisations like cropping or rotating images during conversion?
Absolutely. We offer customisation options such as cropping, rotating, and resizing. Our technicians can make these adjustments according to your specifications, ensuring that the final product meets your expectations. This level of customisation is a major advantage over DIY methods, where such precision might be challenging to achieve.
Q. How are the digital files delivered to me after conversion?
The digital files can be delivered in various ways, including on a USB drive, via cloud storage, or on a DVD. We choose the method that best suits your needs and ensures the safe and secure delivery of your memories. This flexibility is another advantage of choosing a professional service.
Q. What is the best way to store and preserve the digital files long-term?
For long-term preservation, we recommend storing the files in at least two different formats, such as on a hard drive and in cloud storage. It's also important to make backups. Our team can provide guidance on the best practices for digital preservation, which is a crucial aspect often overlooked in DIY conversions.
