The word is digital. Your old slides, negatives, and prints are not. They sit in drawers or shoe boxes, not shared or enjoyed.
If you had a digital copy, you could share them with your siblings and your kids, post them to FaceBook or send them to high school friends. There is so much more you can do with a digital image, but scanning all those images is time-consuming even when you know what you’re doing.
Why not let Roy Dressel Photography do the work for you. We’ll preserve your photos by digitizing them, giving you the files to share and make more prints. Or let our professional lab do the printing for you with quality printing on archival paper.
We have three levels of service: our Basic Scan Only service, our Wash and Wax service and full on restoration.
Our Basic is where we scan your negatives, slides or prints and give you digital files. Here our software does a good job of doing a little clean up of dust and dirt, but some can remain, depending on how much is on the original. For the majority of your images, this is just fine.
With our Wash and Wax service, we clean up the most objectionable dust and scratches by hand. This service is for your most important images that have not survived the ravishes of time well, but don’t require full on restoration.
Our top tier service is image restoration. This is where it may take an hour or more to bring that cracked and torn image back to life. Restoration is for that important picture, the 80-year-old B&W from your great-grandmother, the one that is badly in need of repair.

What to do before you bring your photos to us.
If you’re ready to get your family’s history into the digital age, here is what to do.
Note: We ask that you take your slides out of any trays or plastic pages. If we need to take them out we will charge you an additional 25 cents per slide.
- Go through your images and just bring us the best ones, the ones that are important to you. If you just can’t go through that shoe box of slides, we can help you. We will scan anything that appears to be a good image. This means that we could miss something that has meaning for you and appears to us to be useless. It also means that you will pay for everything we scan. If we scan something you don’t want you will still pay for it, but we will err on the side of not scanning. If you find you want it later, we can always go back and do it later. We will separate those that we didn’t scan so you can take a look at them. There is a 20% additional charge for this service.
- If you want us to put them in order, give them to us in order. Number the prints on the back, or on the edge of each slide of if they are negatives put them in an envelope and lay them in the order you want us to scan them.
