Q:

Hello, Really interested in this conversion of photos of all sizes to CD. My question is that I do not know the difference from a good quality photo at 300 DPI or higher. What will work best for this: I have several different sized photos of my daughter which were taken and printed at a photo studio. I want to scan these so I may make a photobook. Is the 300 DPI acceptable for this? Thank you Jackie

Jackie M.  asked on  Jun 20, 2013

A:

Hey Jackie. Thank you for contacting us. For most, the 300dpi scans will be sufficient. We recommend the hi-res, 600dpi scans, for anyone looking to reprint those photos larger than 8x10, anyone looking to do editing on the images or for images that are old and/or very faded. For posting images online or sharing digitally with friends and family, the 300dpi scans will definitely do the trick. Please do not hesitate to call us at 888-333-2808 or email support@scandigital.com if you have questions. Thank You!

Q:

Can we copy the disks that I have made to give to all family members?

Mary P.  asked on  Jun 20, 2013

A:

Hey Mary. Thank you for contacting us. The discs we create are not protected so you are definitely able to copy them if necessary. If you are interested, multiple copies of each disc can be created and shipped with your order. The cost would be 12.95 per disc and is an option to consider when placing your online order. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 888-333-2808 or email support@scandigital.com. Thank You!

Q:

I have 35mm negatives, lots of them. If I purchase 3 of the $29 coupons, I understand that will provide about 650 photos. How many negatives for those 3 coupons? Based on the 175 neg vs 200 photos, I'm guessing around 575 - is that correct? Also, how are scanned images named and organized? I assume each "roll" would be in a separate folder - is that right? How do you identify folders? Do you use dates from negatives? Thanks, Judd

Judd M.  asked on  Jun 19, 2013

A:

Hi Judd, Thank you for your interest in our scanning services. Our $29 option is valid for $100 of our services. If you purchase 3 of those vouchers, you will be able to use them towards $300 of our services. We scan 35mm negatives at 2000 DPI resolution for $0.58/frame, or at 4000 DPI resolution for $0.78/frame. You will be able to scan 517 35mm negatives at our standard resolution of 2000 DPI with $300 worth of Groupon vouchers. We use a standard naming convention that includes order #, material type, and folder name. We group your images into folders based on the physical organization of the materials. If your negatives are in individual rolls, we will create a separate folder to store the digital images for each of those rolls. We can name the folders however you have your rolls labeled. Usually we receive negatives in envelopes with handwritten labels, and we use those markings to name the digital folders. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us directly by email (support@scandigital.com) or by phone (888.333.2808).

Q:

If I send in negatives, so all of the pictures need to be scanned or can I somehow indicate which ones I want? How?

Chuck C.  asked on  Jun 19, 2013

A:

Hi Chuck, Thank you for your interest in our negative scanning services. We charge $0.58 to scan a 35mm negative frame. If you have individual frames on a strip that you want scanned, we add an extra $0.20 to the price, due to the additional time required for setup. To indicate which negatives you'd like scanned, I've seen our customers do a few different things. You can circle the frames on the sleeve, if they are still stored in plastic sleeves, put a sticker on the sleeve, covering the frames to scan, write down the frame #s that you'd like scanned. Regardless of how you mark the negatives, please also be sure to include a note in the "Special Instructions" field of our order form so we are aware of your request to scan individual/selective negative frames. Our scan technicians do everything by hand and will take the time to scan the negative frames that you mark. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us directly by email (support@scandigital.com) or by phone (888.333.2808).

Q:

I see you will process 8mm video camcorder tapes (up to 2 hours) on a CD. Can you also handle the 1- mini Mini DV Casettes? Are the copy CDs in a digital format that (if I ever get the time) I can use a normal video processing program to edit the copy you produce? Any limitations to that? Will the copy capture both the video and audio? - Rob R.

Robert R.  asked on  Jun 18, 2013

A:

Hey Rob. Thanks for reaching out to us. We are definitely able to assist with converting both your 8mm video tapes and mini-DV tapes to a digital format. We recommend our "expert" transfer for anyone looking to have editable video files created. We create you large, uncompressed AVI files, stored on hard drive, which can be used in any video editing program. The files created will capture both the video and audio output from the tape preserving your tapes perfectly in digital format. Please feel free to reach out to us at 888-333-2808 or email us at support@scandigital.com if you have any questions. Thank You!

Q:

Can you handle photos of mixed, different sizes? How about photos in albums that have been trimmed using scissors?

Chuck C.  asked on  Jun 17, 2013

A:

Hey Chuck. Thank you for reaching out to us. Our trained technicians do all photo scanning by hand; they are never loaded into an automated scanning machine. This protects your photos from damage and allows us to scan photos that have been manually cropped with scissors into odd or distinct shapes. Please feel free to reach out to us at 888-333-2808 or email us at support@scandigital.com if you have questions. Thank You!

Q:

I have a sports event recorded about 15 years ago. Can you convert that?

Marc V.  asked on  Jun 17, 2013

A:

Hi Marc, Unfortunately if the sports even was televised and is copyrighted, we will not be able to transfer it without the written consent of the rights owner. However, if this is self-recorded footage that is not copyrighted, we would be happy to convert it for you to digital. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly by email (support@scandigital.com) or by phone (888.333.2808).

Q:

I don't understand the limit 3 ( the $100) and limit 1($250)? I have many photos in shoeboxes. What do I buy with this deal to get the maximum # of photos scanned?

Cynthia T.  asked on  Jun 17, 2013

A:

Hi Cynthia, Ultimately, we are limiting the usage of Groupons to $300 in value, per person. You can either purchase and use 3 of our $100 option, or 1 of our $250 option. If you have a large # of photos, I would recommend purchasing 3 of our $100 option, giving you the ability to scan up to 625 photos at our standard resolution of 300 dpi. If you have more photos to send in, they will simply be charged our standard price of $0.48 each. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly by email (support@scandigital.com) or by phone (888.333.2808).

Q:

I have VCR video tapes of family members that are less than 1 hour on each tape. Some may have only 20 minutes or so. Can you combine more than one video tape to have up to a 2 hour transfer to DVD? If so, are they marked in segments so that I can skip too the segment I'm looking for? And how do you determine pricing? Thanks....Georgine

Georigne S.  asked on  Jun 17, 2013

A:

HI Georigne, Thank you for your interest in our video transfer services. Our system is setup as a one-to-one transfer process, which means each video tape will be transferred to its own DVD disk. This is to make it easier for our customers to locate their video footage, and to keep everything organized. We are not able to combine footage from multiple tapes together on a DVD, I'm sorry. We charge $19.95 to transfer a tape of 2 hours or less to DVD. If your tape is longer than 2 hours, it will be transferred to multiple DVD disks and be charged as multiple tape transfers. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly by email (support@scandigital.com) or by phone (888.333.2808).

Q:

I would like to know if you can digitize super 8 film. I have inherited a fairly large number of super 8 films (many on larger spools) of home videos from the 50's and 60's. Wondered if you can process these and what would be your charges? Thanks, K. Coutts

Kim C.  asked on  Jun 17, 2013

A:

Hi Kim, Yes, we are definitely able to transfer super 8 film to digital format. Do you know roughly how large your film reels are? We charge by the foot for transfer, and you can estimate your footage based on the size of your reels. For example, a 3 inch reel holds about 50 feet of film, while a 7 inch reel can hold up to 400 feet of film. We charge $0.28/foot to transfer your footage to DVD. We also offer our expert transfer option, which will provide you with high quality .avi video files in addition to your footage on DVD. The .avi video files will give you the ability to use your preferred editing software to edit and manipulate your transferred footage on your computer. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly by email (support@scandigital.com) or by phone (888.333.2808).

Koa N.  from  Merchant  replied on  Jun 17, 2013

A:

Kim - Absolutely, we can process that Super 8 film for you. In addition to transferring the film to digital format, we will actually clean it prior to transfer which is helpful for some the films that are 50+ years old. We charge per foot of film, so it is hard for me to estimate the exact charges without more detail on the size of the reels, but to provide some guidance a reel that is 6 inches in diameter and full contains 300 feet of film. The $100 option would cover about 360 feet of film and the $250 option would cover just under 900 feet of film. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us here on the the discussion boards, directly by email (support@scandigital.com) or by phone (888.333.2808) Monday-Friday 8-6 and Saturday 10-5 Pacific time. Thanks for your interest in our deal!
