"A big thank you to David at Stockcross Photographic Services, who has recently transferred some of my old 35mm slides onto a USB stick. He has enhanced them, so the quality is brilliant. The service was very quick. Highly recommended." DG, Newbury, Oct 2020
"David managed everything from scanning old slides & photos to producing the brilliant photobook for my mother's 90th birthday. Mum was so pleased as so many of her memories were now in one place" JP, Surrey, Mar 2016
“David scanned my family’s 35mm slide collection and the results were so good we got my husband’s family slides done too. Everyone in both families got a wonderful photo book created from the digital images for Christmas, and loved them!” SB, Hungerford, May 2018
the backstory ...
In 2016 I scanned all of my own family slides and the nostalgia was brilliant, all of a sudden old images and memories were available again and being shared with younger family members.
Nowadays it is less about scanning slides & negatives from the 40s-70s and more about tackling printed photos within albums or loose in envelopes from the 80s, 90s and 00s. Who kept the negatives? This task shouldn't be a burden but it may not be achieved overnight. But imagine when all of your photographic archive is online and available for anything you may care to do with it.
