Q:

What file format is used to scan the pictures? JPEG or something else? I assume I can copy individual files from the DVD...correct?

Nicole G.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Photos are scanned to a JPEG format and saved to a DVD data disc. Yes, you can copy individual files or the entire disc to your computer if you wish.

Completion time is based on the quantity of orders currently in-house when your order arrives. If it arrived today, we would be quoting 2-3 weeks however once your order arrives, you will receive an email with an estimated completion time for your specific order. You may purchase up to 4 Groupon deals.

Q:

I'm sorry, I forgot to ask then...with the additional $14.95 for larger sizes, the limit is still 500 prints? or less? V.I.

Virginia I.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

The deal is still for 500 prints total per Groupon. It is up to you how you want to break down that 500 prints. If you want to send 100 4x6s and 300 3x5s and 100 5x7s, for example, you can. Once you send more than 500 photos though, you are charged our standard rate.

Q:

If all pics are less than 4x6 - I have a bunch of 3x5 too- is there still an additional charge to do these?

Colleen C.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

Yes, the deal as it stands is valid ONLY for 4x6 prints. If you have any other sizes, it requires the additional size option for an additional $14.95 per Groupon, per 500 photos.

Q:

In addition to 4X6, I have prints 5x7 and 8X10. so this deal cant apply? I assume prints will be returned? Thank you. V.I

Virginia I.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

This discounted Groupon deal as-is is only for scanning 4x6" photos to DVD however we do offer to scan other sizes upon submission of your order to us for scanning. Here's how: First, purchase the Groupon deal today. Then, when submitting your photos to us for scanning, select the option to scan sizes other than 4x6 on the order form for an additional $14.95 per Groupon. This will allow you to send sizes ranging from 3x3" up to 8x10" (Please note photos must be organized by size). Yes, all photos are returned to you.

Q:

I was always told that the human eye can't perceive above 200-250 dpi, so anything else is superfluous, unless you're cropping before you print....so is there a reason (other than that) to get the upgraded 600 dpi package?

Melissa F.  asked on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

The quick answer is that higher resolutions lead to better scans for reproducing your images. 600 DPI scans produce much larger files but help ensure every detail in your print is recorded in digital form. If you want to be sure as much detail as possible is captured during scanning, add 600 DPI scanning. If you want files that are easier to work with, 300 DPI scans would be a better choice.

tony R.  from  Groupon  replied on  Nov 27, 2012

A:

If you are just viewing your images on a computer or TV, 300 DPI should be fine but if you want to crop at all or print larger than 5x7, you will want to upgrade to 600. Additionally, resolutions of TVs and monitors are only increasing so scanning at 600 DPI will sort of "future-proof" your scans on these new, higher resolution screens.
