Do you still have old slide pictures of special moments with your family? Then you shouldn’t lose any time and turn your slides to digital. Like all old media, slides won’t last forever. These valueable memories will decrease in quality with time. In fact, slides start to show signs of age after already 20 years*.

*Source: Wilhelm, Henry (1993): The Permanence and Care of Color Photographs

Slide films are very sensitive. External influence like humidity and sunlight will ruin your pictures. That’s why you should have your slides digitised:

  • Colour fadings: Fading colours are the first sign of age. Saturation and brilliance will lessen.
  • Colour casts: Material starts to change with time. This leads to colour casts, which means that colours start to shift in a certain direction.
  • Mould: Often slides are stored in the attic or in the cellar, where they are exposed to temperature fluctuation and and humidity. This causes mould, which attacks the slide material.
  • No optimal storage conditions: At 7° degrees room temperature and a humidity of 15% slides have optimal storage conditions. It’s quite difficult to achieve this conditions in reality.
  • No slide projector: Even if your slides are in a good condition,  you need a working slide projector and also a suitable projection surface.

If you have your slides transfered to digital today, you save some valuable moments and avoid further signs of age. Any questions? Our customer service will gladly give you advice!

35mm (24x36mm)Kleinbild-Dia mit Kindermotiv

The 35mm format is by far the most common slide format. Due to its width it is also called 35mm film. We digitise 35mm slides for you starting at 10p per piece.

Medium-format (4x4cm to 6x9cm)mittelformate-scannen

Medium-format slides are sharper and have a higher resolution than 35mm images. Because of its excellent image quality, it is still popular with professional photographers today.

Large-format (9x12cm to 30x40cm)

Slides taken in large-format are produced at great expense and in very small numbers. They are used in areas where the highest precision is required, for example in architectural photography.

Hasselblad Scanner

MEDIAFIX recommendation: Our highend Hasselblad Flextight X5 is considered one of the best scanners in the world. Sharpness, shadow detail and plasticity of the scans are unsurpassed. Flextight scans are particularly suitable for photographers with the highest demands, galleries, museums or archives.




Minox and pocket format (1.1×0.8cm resp. 1.7×1.3cm)

Minox and pocket formats are not widely used. Because the cameras that took these formats were not technically very advanced, the slides are often not correctly exposed.

Half-format (1.8×2.4cm to 2.4×2.4cm)

In half-format, the classic 35mm film is exposed, but not with the usual 24×36mm, but in the silent film cinema format of 18x24mm. A shot in half format is exactly half the size of a 35mm slide. AGFA further developed the half format to 2.4×2.4cm.

Instamatic (2.8×2.8cm)

The Instamatic format simplified film loading considerably and was very popular because of its square dimensions, which were revolutionary at the time.

Panorama format (2.4×6cm)

In the panorama format, the usual 35mm film is used. However, the larger viewing angle allows the reproduction of a much larger image content. The panorama format is particularly suitable for landscape photography.

In our price list we have listed the prices for digitising the different slide formats for you.

If you would like to have your slides digitised but don’t know what format your slides are, that’s no problem! Our customer service will be happy to help you.

Slides to digital: MEDIAFIX processes these frame types

We digitise all slide formats and frame types. We are also happy to digitise special formats and unframed or damaged slides for you.

Dia mit PlastikrahmenPlastic frames

Most slides are framed with plastic frames. These allow the highest long-term stability and smooth digitisation with maximum quality.

Glass frames

Glass frames allow the slide to lie almost perfectly flat. However, the lack of air circulation between the glass and the image very often results in mould. If you want to have slides digitised that are already older and have a glass frame, we recommend our wet cleaning service. This way you get the best possible result from the slide scan.

Cardboard frames

Cardboard frames are largely unusable for archiving. They are only durable to a limited extent and are easily damaged by external influences. In addition, the adhesive comes off over time, so that the slide slips in the frame and can only be projected with considerably more effort.

Kodachrome DiaKodachrome

The very popular Kodachrome film was framed by Kodak in its own type of frame. The relief-like surface of the slide is reflected in the light. While many slide scanners are unable to process this frame, MEDIAFIX is perfectly prepared for it.

Slides to digital: Which slide magazines are there?

Slide magazines are suitable for storage because they are designed to be lightproof, but their construction allows air circulation. MEDIAFIX uses universal magazines for digitisation


Universal magazine – 36 or 50 slides/magazine

The most common slide magazine is the universal magazine. All slide mounts can be sorted and removed here. Usually 3mm thick slide frames are used.

Paximat magazine – 36 or 50 slides/magazine

Paximat magazines are equipped with a lid and are closed on three sides. They can only be used with projectors specially designed for them.

LKM-Dia-Magazin in schwarz

LKM magazine – 60 or 80 slides/magazine

Thinner frames are used in the LKM magazine. This means that the slides are closer together. Up to 80 frames fit in one magazine. In addition, the LKM magazine offers optimum protection against the slides falling out.

CS magazine – 40 or 100 slides/magazine

CS means Compact and Secure, with this type a large number of slides are safely stored in a relatively small space. As with the LKM magazine, the slides are protected from falling out by hooks.

Round magazine – 100 slides/magazine

The round magazine requires a lot of space, but its construction with a chute allows for a flat and thus consistently sharp projection of the slides. Glass frames are usually used for this purpose, as they also enable the highest flatness.
Liesegang-Magazin für Dias

Liesegang – 30 or 50 slides/magazine

This type of magazine is considered “spill-proof”. With the help of metal springs, the slides are protected from falling out. Matching lids additionally protect the slides from dust and dirt.

Scan slides yourself or have them digitised by a slide scanning service: Which way is better?

A good scanner for slides and negatives is expensive (starting at £500) and is only worth it, when you want to have a large amount of slides scanned. Cheaper scan devices often enable low resolutions, which results in bad quality. Apart from this scanning single slides is very time consuming and a professional cleaning is quite difficult. You have to keep repeating the process over and over, because the scanned image is not straight or shows dust. Handling the scanners also is often not self-explanatory. That’s why it’s not as easy as you might think to scan slides on your own.

How can I deliver my slides?

You can deliver your slides by post. Just send them to the following address:

MEDIAFIX Logistics Centre
AMCO Park, Acanthus Road

Which resolution should I choose?

This depends on what you are up to. In general a higher resolution can capture more details of the slide and can display it on the screen later on. We provide these quality levels:

  • Standard+ quality: 4,250 dpi. Suitable for Full-HD-TVs and for printing photo books
  • Premium quality: 5,000 dpi. Suitable for wall prints up to 1 m width, more than anough potential for post-processing and the use of small image details
  • Highend quality: 6,200 dpi. Suitable for wall prints up to 1.5 m width, more than anough potential for post-processing and the use of small image details

Beware: Only higher slide scan resolutions can ensure that you can zoom into the picture see details.

What possibilities do I have to improve contrast and sharpness of my pictures?

For better contrast and sharper images we recommend a higher resolution for scanning your slides.
Premium quality: Enables a higher resolution and even a higher dynamic range. The scanned image will appear more true to the original and images with high contrast are reproduced better.
Highend quality: Is achieved by a virtual multiple scan. Image contours, high ranges in colour and contrast are better captured. If necessary, our professional scan employees correct issues by making manual adjustments. These scans are produced in highest quality and are suitable for zooming in.

Do my slides have to be in correct order in the scanning process?

Not necessarily. MEDIAFIX digitises photo slides in universal magazines. If you deliver your slides appropriate, we can directly scan them without having to resort them. If you deliver them loose or in other magazine types, we resort your slides into appropriate magazines for s small fee of 0p per slide, which is much less expensive than our competitors. Also we maintain the correct order of your slides.

Can I also have dirty slides scanned?

Reinigung von Dias mit GlasrahmenOf course. Due to long storage periods it is quite normal that slides show dirt und dust. Depending on the type of frame, we provide different types of cleaning services. Before scanning, slides in plastic frames get a compressed air treatment. For glass-framed slides  a wet cleaning is the better option. Basically our cleaning services ensure a better result, which don’t have to be retouched afterwards.

Can MEDIAFIX also scan unframed single slides?

Yes, MEDIAFIX can scan unframed single slides, upon request even in larger amounts. Just start your request, we will get in touch with you and talk about your order.
