All audio recordings are digitally processed and basic cleaning of recordings is already included. By default, the recording is saved in the resulting audioCD or MP3 format for playback on CD players and mobile devices. If you are interested we will save the record in a different format. For dirty vinyl records, we use a pressure air scrubber to remove dust and dirt from the entire surface and grooves.

Photos (max. A4), negatives 35 mm, slides 35 mm, other photo formats
We scan negatives or slides in JPEG format at 2400 DPI or 4000 DPI. Possibility to use ICE 4 correction to remove dust and scratches (ICE correction works only for color negatives and slides), photos in 300 DPI resolution. To achieve the highest possible slide scanning quality, we recommend that the slides are delivered in frames without glass panes.
