Ken and Coral Franklin weddingKen and Coral Franklin weddingGreetings

As you may well know I have a passion for old photos and do enjoy an opportunity to scan in old negatives, slides and prints for customers and myself. Also able to scan in documents and convert into editable pdf as I have  OCR optical character recognition software.

With old negatives and prints when scanned they can be repaired, cropped and corrected so even an old fade print or scratched negative can be repaired with a bit of care. I scan in at least 1200dpi and I edit in photoshop mainly using the cloning tool.  You can also use the free google software picasa3 using the retouch tool.

But remember when you scan in an old photo save as a tiff and make sure when you edit to make a copy so you always have the original scan to work with. Once edited you can save as jpg and print off with your printer or using online printing service like photobox when you first sign up you can get up 40 free prints! 

Most of my grandads  (Robert Cave Longcroft photographic services Devizes) negatives got destroyed but do have a few which I am scanning in for my family tree and some Devizes social history. Good to find one of my parents wedding Ken & Coral Franklin St Mary's Devizes 12 April 1952. I wonder who all the guests were?  Also one of my brother Simon Franklin and my gran Dorothy Franklin which need a bit of repair. Also pic of my uncle Robert Cave in a tin bath*smile*

If you have some old local negatives, prints let me know or if you need a hand in scanning let me know. Cost is £25 hour *smile* This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
