Convert Slides to Digital Services

Professional 35MM slide film scanning by
Instead of offering a myriad of digital conversion services, the focus here is mainly 35MM slides. 35MM negative film scanning services are now offered.
Your slide film is scanned using only Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 scanners and saved to the industry standard tif format.
Each scan is reviewed and adjusted (if needed) in Adobe Photoshop. With the experience of enhancing countless thousands of slide scans, I've developed a keen eye for adjusting scans of slides to look their best. Se my notice about slides showing artwork.
Both tif and jpg versions can be supplied at no extra cost. The digital photos made from your slides are then copied to CD-R or DVD-R for delivery.
My customer base varies from professional photographers to scientists, dentists, doctors, engineers and teachers.
"...fairness, attention to detail, and topnotch output has resulted in decades of photos I can easily and proudly share with everyone! I heartily recommend Jim Harrington's slides to digital services. You will be much more than satisfied."
Doug Holcombe - Ohio
"I'm very pleased with these "unedited" scans. The Nikon Coolscan5000 and whatever software you are using is an impressive combination in it's default settings. Will likely contact you for more work in the future.
Gary F. - Virginia
A large portion of the slide scanning service work received comes from discerning individuals looking to digitize the family slide collection. Many orders are from repeat customers who know they won't be disappointed.
For those who lecture or teach using bulky slide projectors and trays, converting slides to PowerPoint is becoming more popular. I can create a PowerPoint presentation from your slides at no additional charge if requested.
Saugus Photos Online is a home-office based business. This is something I'm proud of, and would not try to conceal.
Cautious Boston area scanning customers often drop orders by, appointment. Call Jim Harrington at 781-244-5655 to schedule a drop off. Mailing your film is more convenient for me so that's the delivery method I prefer.
I trust my customers 100%. Full payment is not required until after you have received, reviewed and are satisfied with your order.
All work is guaranteed. If you're not happy for any reason, call Jim at 781-244-5655 so that any issues can be resolved. It might comfort you to know I hardly ever get complaints about the quality of my scans.

05/01/11 "Thank you Jim. The scans look very good, and clean."
So lucky to discover Saugus Photos Online! I had 40 years worth of
slides to be scanned. Most of the photos documenting precious memories
with my kids, my parents, my relatives and friends were in that huge
accumulation. I looked around extensively for just the right person to
entrust with such a significant job. Jim
Harrington was exactly the right choice. His fairness, attention to
detail, and topnotch output has resulted in decades of photos I can
easily and proudly share with everyone! I heartily recommend Jim Harrington's Saugus Photos Online. You will be much more than satisfied.

2/10/10 Dear Jim, Thank you for doing such a
phenomenal job converting my slides to digital.
It's a huge relief to get them scanned before the slides discolored,
and I'll put them to use immediately for lectures, applications and
proposals. It feels great to have my work handled so carefully and professionally. Thanks again!
Jim -The photos arrived and
I've been able to look at
I am so pleased and was shocked that they came out as good as they did for being 55 + years old.
My mom will be so pleased to be able to see these photos that she
hasn't been able to view for years! Thanks for walking me through the
process and sending me the information about the slides. You are very thorough! Check is in the mail as I write this. Have a good Holiday.
Jim, You can imagine how disappointed I was when I borrowed a $70.00
slide copier. I scanned 5 slides, then removed the software/hardware,
put it back in the box.
9/27/10 "Jim, I received my scanned slides today.
They came out excellent. I am very impressed with your work.
8/07/10 "Just wanted to thank you for the great job you did on my slides.
I know they are difficult to scan, but they were originally shot with
the Cibachrome process in mind. The times have changed and the digital
technology has different preferences. I will be sending another batch
of some 100 or so slides. Needles to say, before sending them, I will
call you. Thanks again "
7/05/10 "Hi Jim, I received the pictures and
they look great, thanks! I am sending you a check now for the balance, please let me know once you receive it. Regards,

they were wonderful. I just got the prints back today.
You did a wonderful job and I'll continue to do service with you.
10/7/09 "Thank you for such high quality work."
Jim, received everything today, it's great. Once things are settled
down, my dad and I will go through the hundreds/thousands of slides and
select many more to do - without any rush status attached.
I appreciate your getting this done so quickly.
"Jim, The scanned slides arrived yesterday. They are wonderful, as
usual. We are just so glad we have discovered your services. We went to
Yellowstone last week-most of the people in the park this time of year
are photographers like my husband- and one man was showing us a
portfolio of enlarged pictures (12x16 or larger). There were some
incredible shots, but we walked away saying it was a shame how grainy
and distorted almost all of the pictures were. It did not do justice to
the pictures at all.
With our slides and your scans we are successfully producing pictures (prints) that turn out beautifully. Thanks! Will let you know when I'm going to send more slides.
"Thank you again for getting the slides in DVD, CD, Powerpoint
formation - especially as soon as you did. I now have his slides in any
format needed for TV, computer, viewing, altering, or anything else.
12/08/08 "Hi Jim, I got the slides." "They look GREAT! Even the worst ones are far better than I had ever expected. I can't wait to show these to everybody - they haven't seen them in 30 years!
"The slide scans were absolutely wonderful! These family pictures have
a great deal of meaning and I look forward to Christmas Eve when I
share them with family. I really think your touch-ups made many of the pictures even better than the originals. I'm hoping my husband will want to scan even more of the slides after he sees your fine work. (I mailed your check already!)
09/23/08 Jim: Although I only had time for a quick initial review the slides look wonderful and we appreciate the work. I will get the remaining money owed to you directly.
Thanks again for the work, the promptness, the quality, and the return packaging that was far superior to mine.
03/21/08 Jim, Just had a chance to look over the slides and they look GREAT! I'm
very pleased with them all,
and I'm sure they will serve my needs just fine. I appreciate you
sending both the non-edit and enhanced versions. Your check will go out
Hi Jim, We received the slides this morning and everything looks great.
For your information, the images will be used during the keynote
address at the Architect 07 Conference in the Netherlands.
We're quite pleased with your personal service and the quality of the work. We'll be happy to work with you again in the future.
1/15/03 - "Jim, I very much appreciate your professionalism and service on my recent order.
Your extra efforts in converting my slides do not go unnoticed.
scans to eliminate defects in the original work are excellent, and the
conversion to JPG format is greatly appreciated. Best of luck with your
family and business, particularly your new baby.
My Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED scanners are designed for 35MM film but any slide in a 2" square mount can be scanned. Scans from formats larger than 35MM, like 127 or "Super Slides" will be cropped. 126 or the "Instamatic" format film can be scanned except for the top and bottom ~7%.
Kodachrome slide film often retains its color far longer than other slide film types. However, Kodachrome film has a narrower exposure latitude.
