Family Photo Album

It's time to save your precious memories by Digitising your old photo prints. 

It's something we can all relate to, shoe boxes full of photos stuffed in the back of cupboards and photo albums sitting on shelves , photos rarely looked at and even more rarely shared with family and friends.

Old prints can fade, be destroyed or simply lost, scanning to digital can protect your memories for this generation and those to come.

Retro Image Scan can scan your old photos , archive the digital images on our secure password protected Cloud service, from there  you can choose to download a copy or share  the online galleries with family and friends.

Retro Image Scan can provide:
Scans uploaded to an USB.
Scans sorted in to individual galleries.
Online archive of scans.
Pick up and return service for precious photographs.
Photograph enhancement to improve quality.

Browse the site and check out the SCAN FACTS and PRICE LIST and when you are ready contact us and let us know how we can help you preserve your memories digitally.

Scan Facts 

scan facts
  • Why should I scan my Prints?
    Scanning old prints is important because old prints can fade, be lost or destroyed, scanning is non-destructive and allows for storage on Media devices(USB) or in the cloud. Electronic devises are how we view images these days so it makes sense to preserve our memories for this technology .
  • How do I get my original prints to you?
    We understand sending your precious photos through the post can be unsettling and for that reason we recommend using Aust Posts Express Post service as this service is tracked for added security, sending by Registered mail requiring a signature is even more secure. Retro Image scan can supply a pick up & return service, costs will be dependant on your location and the size of the order . (approx.$25.oo) Adelaide metro only Contact us for a quote.
  • What is the best way to pack my photos ?
    The main thing to consider when packing your prints is to keep them flat and use a small box with some padding around the prints. If your photos are sorted a good idea is to use labeled zip lock bags.
  • What size can you scan?
    We can scan prints up to A4 size. Prints that are damaged/torn can also be scanned, see price list for full details.
  • Can you do photo albums?
    Yes we can, removing prints for scanning does cost extra , see the price list for all the information.
  • Some of my photos have faded can you help with this?
    As part of our standard service all photos are individually view and if necessary basic enhancements are applied to improve colour and brightness. Photos are scanned at 300dpi which is fine for on screen viewing and reprinting to the same size as the original, to go beyond this will require custom scanning and processing which we are happy to discuss with you.
  • I have lots of images, can they be put into seperate electronic albums.
    Yes, if your prints are provided to us sorted and labeled they can be saved to individual folders.
  • Do you backup the digital images?
    To help you get the most out of scanning your prints we make 3 backups of your files. 1) images saved on our own system . 2) Images are cloud saved onto 2 secure commercial sites. These backups are part of our service, FREE for 6 months to allow you to download and share with family.
  • How long does it take to get my prints scanned?
    Retro Image Scan aims for a turn around time of 5 working days, larger jobs may take longer.
  • What happens to my images after scanning?
    After scanning , your digital images will be securely stored online and if required your original prints returned to you. A USB copy of your images is also available.
