Do you still have old negatives of special moments with your family? Birthdays and other occasions, even vacations used to be held on negatives and given to development. But not all paper photos still remain and often they are faded out or are damaged. The negatives may be left, but they also won’t last forever! In fact, negatives start to show signs of age after already 20 years*. Having your negatives scanned is the best way to save them.

Why you should have your negatives digitised

  • Color fadings: Fading colors are the first sign of age. Saturation and brilliance will lessen.
  • Color casts: Material starts to change with time. This leads to color casts, which means that colors start to shift in a certain direction.
  • No optimal storage conditions: Negatives should be stored quite cool. Often this is not possible, which is why they will fade faster.
  • Crincles and scratches: When you view or resort your negatives, they can easily get damaged.

Viewing negatives as they are isn’t really fun. The image is too small and you can’t see the correct colors. Thats’s why they are stored away for years.

You receive your negatives back as an inverted image. This brings back many possibilities:

  • Share your negative scans with your friends and family in the whole world.
  • Easily enjoy your scans on TV, tablet or a projector.
  • Duplicate your negatives as much as you want: Create several backup copies.
  • Archive the recordings of your and your family’s life like you want to.
  • Design and give away special pictures as a photo gift.
  • Print your shots as a high-quality wall print.

Does it even make sense to have old negatives scanned?

Yes, the older your negatives are, the more it makes sense, before it is too late. Our additional services like dry cleaning or Premium-inversion via raw data can even then produce very good results.

In what file format are my digitised negatives saved?

By default we save your scanned negatives as JPG files. For special requirements we also provide saving them as TIFF files.

In what resolution are my negatives scanned?

Depending on the quality level you choose, we scan your negatives in 4,250, 5,000 or 6,200 dpi.

Do I get back a digital negative or an inverted negative?

You will get back your negatives inverted.

How should I pack up my negatives?

Envelopes or sleeves are best suitable.

Should I rather have photos scanned or negatives?

In most cases the negative is more suitable to scan, because we can then achieve a higher resolution.

Do I have to remove the paper strips off the negatives?

No! We will remove them in the scanning process.

Should I clean my negatives before I have them scanned?

We absolutely recommend a cleaning. You can either do this yourself or have it done by us professionally for a little extra charge.

Is it possible to only have selected negatives scanned?

No, basically MEDIAFIX scans all negatives on a strip.
