Shopping Around for a Photo Scanning Service?


Scanning your photos to CD or DVD is a great way to preserve, share, and enjoy them today and tomorrow. Finding the right way to get it done is an important first step and one that shouldn't be taken lightly.

Your photos are an important and irreplaceable part of you. A historical record of important events you've shared with family and friends or achievements you've accomplished.

You're likely to have a lot of questions and concerns. You can visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) pages and view testimonials from our customers.


Don't Want, Don't Pay™

Our Don't Want, Don't Pay™ service allows you to delete up to 20% of the images we scan. Once we scan and manually color and exposure correct your images, as part of our basic service package, you can review your images online and delete or approve the images you want to keep. With DigMyPics, we've made the reviewing and deleting process quick and easy. See for yourself!


Real Time Scanning™

Don't Want, Don't PayOur exclusive Real Time Scanning™ service allows you to see each photo as we scan it.  This unique feature makes it fun for you and your family to watch your account everyday as new photos are instantly available to view the moment we've scanned them.


Digitize Your Entire Photo & Film Collection

Scan your entire photo and 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

TIFF vs JPEGAt 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.
