Photographic Film & Scanning Services

Our top-of-the-range scanning department consists of a Drum and Flatbed scanner, capable of capturing exceptional detail. We can scan everything from a single negative or print, to a complete archive.

We are one of the few photographic labs left that still offers a wide range of high quality film processing, negative scanning and photo printing.

Service types

Photographic Scanning
Drum scanning: the tool of choice for high-end film applications because drum scanners are capable of capturing very subtle details in film originals, producing exceptionally smooth tonal gradients and a high level of shadow detail. Scans are produced at 600dpi or 300dpi, depending on the process, but we can produce higher or lower dpi's on request. We can scan any size of flexible media up to 22 x 18 inches physical dimension. Film is mounted in an oil bath enclosed in an acetate sleeve, eliminating most surface marks or scratching. Our Kodak IQ Smart flatbed scanner can produce 300dpi images, and we can produce higher or lower dpi's on request. While drum scanners are capable of scanning both reflective and transmissive artwork, a good-quality flatbed scanner can produce excellent scans from reflective artwork up to A3 or 11x16 inches in size.

Film Processing
We are one of the few photographic labs left that still offer a wide range of high quality film processing, negative scanning and photo printing through Metro Imaging. We have consistently processed photographic film for more than thirty years using the very best dip and dunk photo processing for transparency (E6), negative (C41) and black and white film, along with other services, such as contacting, mini-lab prints and scanning.

Film for Sale
In addition to processing film we complete the service by offering film sales. We have a wide variety of film types at competitive prices which you can order along with your prints.
