Additional Digitize Negatives Details
Remember the negatives you used to get with all of your photographs? They were skinny, didn’t take up much room, and when you gave some of your printed pictures away to loved ones, you felt okay about it because you “still had the negatives.”
But you never looked at them again, did you?
They went back in the drawer or the shoebox, or maybe they are still in the big fireproof safe you have.
So while you are protecting them, you aren’t really enjoying them, and crucial bits of family history are not readily accessible, and certainly are not being shared. At this point, you are probably hard-pressed to hold your negatives up to the light to see what’s on them.
And yet, you have thousands of negatives, some of them going back 50 years or more.
You have a multi-dimensional problem – your memories are present, but not viewable by anybody, and they and the memories on them are fading after all these years.
Those negatives are valuable memories with no future value in their current state.
They have to be brought into the modern era with all of your other forms of media.
While negatives tend to be the highest quality analog items in everyone’s collection, they are also the least viewed and most forgotten.
Our Background In Digitizing Negatives
We know everyone out there has them. Your negatives may be in shoeboxes, or picture frames, or big, heavy albums.
Many of the photos have been passed down generations from parents and grandparents, yellow and fading.
They are in attics and closets. They are under every bed in your house.
They are the negatives of the photographs that comprise the vast majority of the memories of days gone.
And you have thousands and thousands of them. Chances are, you cannot identify everyone in those negatives because, well, much time has gone by and the people whom you thought you would remember forever.
We know this was the same reason we started Memory Fortress.
There wasn’t a perfect way to get your negatives digitized, organized, and tagged at the time.
As it turns out, people took action only when a big event happened, usually a family wedding or funeral.
But we wanted to make it so easy and so inexpensive to transfer negatives and preserve memories that the photo scanning operation was the first business we launched.
The process to digitize negatives takes no more than five business days and costs as little as 17 cents per photograph.
Higher Quality Digitized Negatives
Most people who send in negatives are more particular about high-quality images.
Of course, old negatives may have degraded some overtime while sitting on the closet’s top-shelf.
Memory Fortress uses two forms of color correction to bring old memories on transferred negatives back to life.
Many negatives skew red or blue, depending on the original manufacturer of the film.
While we can’t take away the tinting entirely, we can remove much of it, leaving you with a much crisper, more precise, sharper image than you thought you had.
Our technicians are skilled at editing and work on each image to bring out the best possible quality in digitized negatives!
This all begs an obvious question: If you have both the negatives and the printed photos, which ones should you send to Memory Fortress?
Well, good question! We are glad you asked.
Generally, digitizing the negatives will lead to a higher quality image.
Since the printed photo is a copy of the negative, you are essentially making a copy of an existing document by scanning photographs.
However, it is less expensive to process the pictures.
So if the cost is critical, send in the photos.
If the image quality is essential, send in the negatives, which have the purest available image.
What about deliverables and timing?
Processing digitized negatives takes a little longer than processing printed photos, but we but we convert most negatives to digital within 5-10 business days.
We will call and let you know it will take a little extra time for very large quantities.
Each negative is scanned one at a time and undergoes a process that maximizes the image’s clarity and sharpness.
We do not rush this process.
