Dolls: I agree with wots. Try to find more of a specialist shop if you can, rather than one of the chains. I did some work myself recently with some old photos and it's amazing what you can do with photobucket and picasa these days. The specialsts will take a bit more time over them, whereas the chains will just send them to a central processing centre where they don't really care. You'll be amazed at the results. :thumb:

Seriously, you have almost everything needed with the PC, mno need to take it somewhere to be processed.

If speed isn't the issue then you can get a scanner in the January sales and burn the results onto a disc. There are thousands out there, new and on eBay.
By experimentation you can see what works and what doesn't before burning. No wastage and no charges from a third party for stuff that you didn't need.

And of course you can then start printing out 20 and fifty pound notes......

Good advice there.

Though modern printer/scanners are very good nowadays and not that expensive - maybe fifty quid. I scanned loads of photos a while back, some as small as 2" square from the 30s / 40s and then printed them at much bigger sizes - still very good.

Yup even a cheapish scanner will scan old pics like that more than enough quality. The real trick is sorting out the colour balance and cleaning up any scratches once you've scanned them.
Shame you haven't got the negs still as scanning from them is so much better quality ( although you have to watch for colour balance as they get old. the dyes fade at different rates

I love this one of his ....

Image


1838

The purportedly first picture of a living person. The image shows a busy street, but due to exposure time of more than ten minutes, the traffic was moving too much to appear. The exception is the man at the bottom left, who stood still getting his boots polished long enough to show. Look closely and you will also see another man sitting on a bench to the right reading a newspaper. Also in the upper left hand side you can also see another man standing under the awning of the 3rd building from the left. What looks to be a woman standing under the street lantern at 10 o'clock from the man getting his shoes shined and another one in the big white building,1st row 3rd window down. Notice the child in the top floor window of the white building in front. Note that the image is a mirror image.
