Our in-house film scanning service utilises an Imacon Flextight Precision 949 virtual drum scanner capable of handling film from 35mm up to 5 x 4". The resulting files are suitable for the highest quality fine art and exhibition prints, with excellent sensitivity for capturing fine shadow and highlight detail. Flatbed scanning is also available and can accommodate A3 pieces while digital capture of larger or deeper dimensioned works is available upon request.
Some customers expect the scans to look punchy, vibrant and print-like, but they usually will not; We scan films "flat" to reveal and open out dark areas and hold any details present in high lights thereby providing the best raw file to work from. Any dynamic detail lost/not captured during scanning cannot be retrieved later. The retoucher can then make the best creative decisions using all of the information that was available in the original film to produce the final file.

Colour management is the process of linearising and profiling a digital imaging system and its associated components for throughput and output. It is an important practise to implement for users who work with digital images on a daily basis.
Colour management normally consists of both a hardware and software solution for an existing computer system (ie. PC or Mac) and will allow you to consistently produce accurate prints and output files that are within industry standard colour spaces.
