Photo-60 liberates images from fragile paper formats with photo scanning and digitization services. Photo-60’s talented imagesmiths free pictures from tangible trappings prone to fading and cracking and grant them immortality as digital data, preserving photos as 300-dpi JPEG files on a choice of CD or DVD as well as in the shop’s free online storage space. Employing specialized Kodak scanning equipment, the digitizers can capture up to 1,000 photographs in as few as 24 hours. Eligible images range in size from 3”x4” to 8”x12” and must be presented ready to scan, meaning clients will have to release hot shots from photo albums or cryogenic holding cells prior to their arrival at Photo-60.
Though Photo-60 sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The media-preservation team at Photo-60 is working against time. As old photographs and Super 8 reels slowly crumble and fade after years of use, the team scans these precious keepsakes and stores them in more durable digital formats. The center employs a high-speed Kodak scanner—which transforms 1,000 photographs into high-resolution JPEG files within 24 hours—and an 8mm projector that transcribes flicker-free images onto a digital sensor frame by frame. Though some photos may be irreparably damaged due to fire or drawn-on mustaches, Photo-60’s staff can breathe new life into creased, torn, or faded images with a combination of traditional and digital restoration techniques.
