Our top-of-the-range photographic film scanning department consists of a drum and flatbed scanner, capable of capturing exceptional detail and tone; as well as flatbed scanning and CCD scans.

We also offer a cost-effective bulk scanning service using modern scanning techniques, and vintage images enhance and repair with careful retouching to bring back their original quality, reproducing perfectly time after time.

We are one of the few photographic labs left that still offers a wide range of high-quality film processing. 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 processing.

Metro Imaging's professionalism, quality and genuine dedication to photographic talent make them our number one choice
