How do I figure out what  those technical terms mean?
PPI/DPI (pixels/dots per inch) determines the detail in your image. PPI/DPI of about 3000 is optimum less means your losing details more (unless your negatives are absolutely amazing) offers no real benefit just increased cost & bigger files. We do offer 4800 scanning if you want it.    Optical V Interpolated. Optical PPI means the actual pixel resolution the scanner used in making your image. Interpolated means it was scanned at a lower PPI then just up sized in software this is a cheat to save time & I hope no one in the industry is using it. That’s why we state true optical PPI   Dust & Scratch Removal: There are two types:   1:Software also known as Digital  The software just looks at the image and makes a guess, its rubbish and causes more problems than it solves, I’ve seen eyebrows removed. Avoid!   2:Infra-Red  This is a physical second scan of the image using infra-red light. This highlights the scratches and blemishes. Digital Ice scratch removal is a software package by Kodak that uses that information but I’ve found it also modifies sections of the image without scratches. Our infra-red removal software works fine on most negatives(see slideshow) Infra-red doesn’t work on a older B&W   Image Enhancement: This includes getting the brightness & contrast correct, removing colour castes eg a purple tinge, bringing up detail in darker regions. There are two methods.    1:Automated Software sometimes it gets it right, sometimes not. For example a white wedding dress against a lot of dark foliage. Auto often says that picture is too dark and boost the brightness washing out all detail in the dress but the shrub looks great. Once its gone it can not be restored!   2: Manual (human) a technician uses their eyes to look at the content of your image and knowing what’s important adjusts it to get the best result. Making peoples faces in the shadows viewable, removing say a green tinge so skin tones are correct, enriching the colour where it has faded.
Can you tell if a negative is still in good condition or what is on it? First up always wear cotton gloves when handling negatives, thumb prints may not come off! Usually you can’t tell the condition by looking however some more obvious issues are: Water or heat damage. The orange tinge to the negatives emulsion will be blotchy or have runs in it or maybe cracked or badly curled. Adhesion Damage. Negatives that are in the same pocket can stick together, when separated they can damage the emulsion it may show as welts, colour changes or tears in the emulsion. Contents of a Negative. All colour negatives have an orange tinge which varies for each brand, this is normal. Being an opposite image a white dress is very dark and black car almost see through. You can see if there are people or objects but not much else. You can’t you tell if its in focus or if people have their eyes closed for example. We don’t scan just one image on a strip and if the strips are cut up the cost is far higher so the best you can do is just remove a strip you don’t need or if they are in their own sleeves mark that sleeve as not required.   I have both the negatives and the paper prints which is best? In a perfect world the negative wins as it has far more resolution (detail) However negatives age over time and you can’t tell how much until they are scanned. So assuming you prints are still in good condition eg rich colour it boils down to purpose and budget.   If you are planning to print images 50% larger than your photos or zoom right in and print some ones face then negatives will offer you resolution to do it. If the aim is just to preserve your past and you are happy with quality of prints then get the photos scanned. NB if they are satin prints not glossy then your sharpness & Colour are definitely compromised and the negatives maybe better. A roll of film with 36 images taken, maybe 20 images were good and the other 16 either similar or blurry or just not needed. With photos you can just select the ones you want with negatives chances are you will be getting all 36 so on a cost basis Photos win hands down.
