High End Scanning

Graphic Editing
Artmedia Studio uses Imacon-Hasselblad technology (virtual drum scanner, 8000 dpi optical) to get high-quality photo scans without interpolation. Your original images (transparencies, negatives, or opaque substrate) will not be affected by additive products or external agents, such as gel, adhesive tape, or others, because we don’t use them. Due to their design, our scanners receive the film or opaque supports without physical contact that could jeopardize their integrity.

Film & Opaque picture

Types of image physical sources for scanning:

Transparencies and Negatives
24 x 35 mm; 24 x 149 mm
6 x 4.5 cm; 6 x 6 cm; 6 x 7 cm
6 x 9 cm; 6 x 12 cm; 6 x 17 cm
4 x 5”; 5 x 7”

Opaque pictures (flexible paper and fabric-based images)
Up to 20,5 x 29,5 cm.

Texture and color correction

Our devices, such as scanners, monitors, and printing systems, are calibrated according to the specific standards based on the ICC profiles (International Color Consortium.)

Texture and color correction is a process aimed at adjusting textures (radius, sharpen mask, grain, dark limits, etc.) and colors (temperature, tint, saturation, contrast, brightness, among others.)

Color Separation Guide and Gray Scale (Small) are resources that help control the neutral tone values and achieve the correct color balance of the image for print and reproduction processes.

Image Cleaning

After scanning, we take care of even the smallest details, such as removing dust and scratches, to obtain the cleanest and most excellent reproduction.

Digitize your images in the best quality and maximum resolution, preserving every detail while rendering their original colors.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Hi-End scanning price per image?

Pricing is determined by the number of images, their dimensions, file sizes, and digital resolution of each one of them.

The price is $0.50 per MB (megabyte). Every image should have a minimum of 50 MB ($25.00).

In what resolution should you digitize my photos?

Fine Art Print
400 dpi

350 - 400 dpi

Self adhesive vinyl and solvent prints
200 - 300 dpi

We digitize the copy at the print size.

Is higher DPI better for scanning?

We recommend using the amount of DPI according to the printer's specifications and the printing machine.

Turnaround Time

The number of images, scan size, and complexity of clean-up determine turnaround time.
Turnaround time does not include weekends or holidays, and your project is processed when ArtMedia receives your analog images/transparencies.
Rush processing is available at an additional cost.

How are the scanned files delivered to me?

Digital files will be delivered through Wetransfer or Dropbox.

Alternatively, we can transfer your digital files into a storage device such as a USB or portable hard drive provided by you or we can provide a storage media at an additional cost.

How do I prepare my photos for shipping?

We advise that you use a delivery service that provides you with a tracking number, so you know exactly where your photos are or were last seen. You should also use plenty of bubble wrap to prevent damage and store smaller photos in ziplock bags so they do not get lost.

If you live close enough to Artmedia, consider delivering and picking up the photos yourself.
