Our goal is to be as clear and helpful as possible. We have listed a number of frequently asked questions but will continue to add to this list as we receive questions from our customers. If you would like to ask a question, please use our contact form and you may see it added to the list below.
Type 1 is the scan you receive as part of a process & scan or process, scan & print package deal. These scans are 300ppi jpg files at standard photographic sizes. For example, if you order a 6×4 process & scan package, each frame of your film will be scanned to 6×4 inches with a ppi (pixels per inch) of 300. This gives you a pixel density of 1800 x 1200 pixels (1800 pixels ÷ 300ppi = 6 which is how we arrive at 6 inch). A list of standard photographic sizes and their resolutions can be found here.
Type 2 is an Imacon scan. These are high resolution scans from our virtual drum scanner, saved as 8bit uncompressed tif files. These scans can be printed at very large sizes and contain the greatest detail available from your film frame. The resolution varies depending on the film format scanned.

Our digital printing service is handled by our digital printing department at CC Imaging. I am Analogue is the ‘traditional film’ department of the professional lab, CC Imaging.
It is important that your digital files are sized and cropped correctly, their resolution is set to 300dpi and they each have the sRGB colour profile embedded within them. Following these steps ensures the most accurate print from your original digital file.
