Scanning


    We offer scanning through our Fujifilm Frontier 570 minilab. Ideal if you have boxes of slides or film that require digitising.

    Digitising Analogue

    Keep shooting your favourite film.

    For better or worse we live in a world made up of ones and zeros. The veritable alchemy of yore (traditional film processing) is no longer the dominant way of producing images. No, that doesn’t mean film and chemistry is dead or redundant, oh no! We all love film, that’s why we keep the flame alive! 

    It’s all binary to me

    Scanning is the primary way to make a digital copy of a printed photograph or negative/transparency. Several scanning options are available, which means you can tailor the scan exactly to your specification.

    Our Fujifilm Frontier 570 scanner.

    To simplify our Frontier 570 scan service, we now offer 2 standard scan sizes. Our 6″ service provides a scan that is equal to a 6″ print across the longest side @300dpi. Our 12″ service provides a scan that is equal to a 12″ print across the longest side @300dpi.

    The Frontier 570  is ideal for volume scanning as we have competitive discounts available on large quantities. Scans produced are 8bit sRGB jpeg files. Digital Ice (dust and scratch removal) can be enabled or disabled.

    Please note that whilst the file size of jpeg images can vary due to the subject within the image, scans at the same size will contain the same amount of pixels.

    Binary Decisions

    Understanding pixels and resolution.

    When something is scanned, or a photograph is taken on a digital camera, the resulting image is made from a group of pixels; think of this image as a mosaic. Each individual pixel has a colour. This group of pixels, like the mosaic when viewed further back, produce a recognisable image.

    Scans at CC Imaging are not produced with a specific dpi/ppi in mind. Rather, most scanning services are matched to standard photographic sizes. This is due to our print process using the same standard photographic sizes.

    Remember, resolution is not the dpi/ppi of an image. True resolution is how many pixels make up a scan. Division of these pixels, dpi/ppi, does not affect the quality of the scan, it simply organises the pixels into square inches for printing.
