ScanDigital is a popular online photo digitization service with which you can convert old photos, slides, negatives, photo albums, videos and movie film into digital format on DVDs, CDs, usb drive and through their online gallery. The online gallery is fully interactive and you can share your photos with friends and family, upload additional digital images to complete your digital gallery and order reprints. So let's check out ScanDigital's service offerings from a customer perspective.

Ease of Use - Ordering Process:
The ordering process at ScanDigital is easy and straight forward. Click on the "Get Started" button to fill out the simple order form. Once you place your order, the site generates a UPS shipping label which is required to sent your photos to ScanDigital. Alternately, you can also a secure shipping kit (DigiPac) where you get all the packaging you will need to safely and securely send your pictures to them.

Quality of Scans:
Once your photos reach their facility, all your photographic materials go through ScanDigital's cleaning and preparation stage. It is then scanned manually and then individually cropped, oriented and color-corrected. The service also includes removal of dust, minor scratches, blemishes and red eyes. We were very satisfied with the outcome of ScanDigital's scanning service. The colors were very natural and appealing. In most cases the digital photos seemed more pleasing to the eye than the original prints. Even very old (and dull) photos which had visible amounts of dirt and dust accumulated over the years were very tidy on arrival and the scans were amazing. Though we never had to use this service, ScanDigital claims to reprocess your order for free if you're not satisfied with it.

The scanning prices are a little on the higher side with ScanDigital, especially if you do not opt for their prepaid pricing. You're eligible for prepaid pricing only on 1000 scans or more. This way, the per scan price comes to $.38 per scan instead of the regular orice of $0.48. At the time of order, you can estimate the cost of your order with the ScanDigital Pricing Calculator which is very handy if you have lots of photos to scan.

Shipping Costs:
ScanDigital's shipping costs are competitive and you will not have to pay huge amounts for shipping. The pre-packaged shipping option at $10 is very attractive and worth the price.

Turn Around Time:
Average orders of less than 1,000 images typically take only a few weeks. It took a little over 4 weeks to get our original prints along with the scanned optical media. Even though 4 weeks is on the slower side, ScanDigitals US-based location does reduce some turnaround time as compared to some of the other competitors having offshore facilities outside the US.

Other Services:
Besides Photo Scanning, ScanDigital offers Video Transfer, Film Transfer, Hard Drive Transfer, Online Video (expected soon). You can create digital slideshows to relive your favorite memories with a personalized slideshow from ScanDigital. This comes in Basic, Premier and Blockbuster options depending on the level of personalization. You can also get Digital Photo Frames, Gift Cards (delivered by email, by mail or gift wrapped by mail). ScanDigital also offers many other print products like mugs, key chains, t-shirts through their print partner Qoop.

Quicker turnaround time as compared to the competition and high quality is something you can associate with ScanDigital. You can safely trust ScanDigital and drop your valued memories in the mail, get them scanned and enjoy the results on your computer or digital devices.
