Professional 35MM slide film scanning by
Jim Harrington

For more than 14 years, Jim Harrington has provided 35MM slides to digital conversion services. Serving the entire United States, most orders arrive by mail. An increasing share of the work comes from local customers who schedule a drop off.

slide scanning services 35MM digital conversionInstead 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.

Sample testimonials:

"...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."

2/12/12 Hi Jim,
I just got the first batch of DVDs containing the scans you made of those damaged slides.
Awesome work! I'm amazed you managed to retrieve some colors out of those - they were so deteriorated and 'rosed over' that I thought they would never come to life. Your suggestion to make seconds in black and white was also a great idea.
I'll tee up the third batch and get them sent to you soon, so you can do your magic on them. Thanks again.
Best regards,
Hugh R. Las Vegas Nevada

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.

Sincerely, Andy Y. - Newfane Vermont

12/04/10 Jim -The photos arrived and I've been able to look at them. 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.
Linda L - Gladstonbury Connecticut

11/26/10 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.

Then I received the DVD and original slides that you processed.
I am really pleased with the results. You really did such a nice job on them. Some of my slides were not properly exposed, and I see the results of your editing. Thanks so much for your talented work.
Don C. - Lincoln Nebraska

9/27/10 "Jim, I received my scanned slides today. They came out excellent. I am very impressed with your work.
I will be sending more soon. I just need to get them from my parents house. The ones you just did were from 1986...." "Thanks again!"
Brenda G - Ashford Connecticut

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 "
Goran R - Chicago IL

Jan M. - Durham CT

01/21/09 "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.
Annette W. - Idaho

Good Morning and Happy New Year! The
scans look wonderful. We are very pleased. Thank you so very much for your diligence. Should we have any other scanning, I will be sure to contact you. I did give your e-mail address to one of our employees for some personal scanning. He is one of our engineers. Thanks again for your fine job.
Sherry D. - Florida

12/15/08 "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. Thank you!
Kathryn C. - Texas

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!

10/30/08 "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!)
Roxanna R. - Paris Kentucky

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.
Rick W. - Canton Georgia

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 this week.
Roger W. - Indianapolis IN

3/22/07 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.

Slide Filnm Digital conversion services

Slides to Digital

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%.

Common slide film types I receive for scanning to digital photos are: Kodak Kodachrome, Ektachrome., Fuji Velvia, Fuji Provia, Fuji Sensia, Anscochrome and Agfachrome.

Kodachrome slide film often retains its color far longer than other slide film types. However, Kodachrome film has a narrower exposure latitude.
