Processing of Film Photographs:
PhotoArt Imaging can process and enlarge your photographs
captured on film. Whether the photograph is in the form of a print, slide,
negative or transparency, we can digitize the image utilizing a high
resolution scanner equipped with high color bit depth capture, for
representation of the original photo. The higher resolution files produced can create larger
print sizes maintaining original photo quality.
Digital Film Processing for:
Prints - any print size up to 8" x 10".

Before enlarging any photograph, simply take a very close look
at the photo
and try to determine the physical and optical condition. We
retouching with every scan, but some originals require more than
touch-ups (5-10 min.). More major retouching is charged at
the standard digital retouching rate
and can not be estimated until we view the original photograph.
