Digitize Your Entire Photo & Film Collection
Many people have a variety of
film types in their collection, including 127, 126, 110, 35mm half frames
and APS, in both color and black and white. At DigMyPics, we scan all the common
slide formats and even most of not-so-common types with no hassle or compromise!
Uncompressed Files, Uncompromised Details
At DigMyPics, we scan and work with your photos in the
TIFF format. Working in TIFF produces a larger file, which takes
more time to scan and edit. For that reason most other services work and scan
in JPEG but working in JPEG causes a loss in image quality with every edit and save.
It's a small detail that can make a big difference.
Want your images back in TIFF format so you can edit them further?DigMyPics
will never charge you more to get your images in TIFF, so you can get
TIFF, JPEG, or both formats and you only pay for the extra discs that may be required.
JPEG vs TIFF
Lossless File: Editing and resaving results in no loss in quality
or degradation to the image.
Lossy File: Every time it is edited and resaved there is a loss
in quality to the image.
- Editing or digitally restoring your images using photo editing software
- Archiving. Order a set of TIFF files to put in a safe deposit box or fireproof safe
- Viewing, emailing, creating web galleries and Slideshow Movies (low-res)
- Printing photos and photo gifts
- Burning discs to share (high-res)
- A TIFF file is more flexible than a JPEG because it retains all of its information
- You can create a JPEG from a TIFF file if you have the proper software
- JPEGs are a more common and supported by most applications
- A JPEG is about 1/4th the size of a TIFF
- A TIFF file is about 4x the size of a JPEG, which can make working with them slow
- TIFF files are not supported by as many applications as JPEGs
- If you edit a JPEG, the saved file is compressed and the image is degraded
