I wanted nearly 200 35mm slides digitised and they were done very well in just a couple of days. I wish I had used this service before and am now looking through my remaining slides to see how many more to be done using this excellent value service — it is not worth your while trying to do them yourself!!.
Paul at PDScanning transferred a large number of family slides to digital files for us. We were very happy with the speedy, professional service and the disc provided with all the slides on. We would recommend him for all your digitizing needs!
I just wanted to say Thank you for doing the slides at such short notice and so quickly for us. They have come up a lot better than we were expecting considering they are 55 years old so we are made up thanks. I know my mother and father in law will be over the moon when they see them. Huge thanks again
Wonderful to have old family slides on cd. Amazing results and quality. Many thanks for bringing all our memories back to life not only for us but also for our children. Would highly recommend anyone to use this company.
Paul offers a great service. Scans are of very high quality. The turn-around time is quick. He’s efficient and communicates really well. Highly recommended!
Thank you for the quality scans I am very please.
Just to let you know that my slides arrived safely yesterday. I had a quick look at the DVD last night and it is very pleasing, my dad will be very happy.
Excellent work, well pleased. Will put together another 100
All successfully in my dropbox and very nice scans too. Thanks you very much: very satisfied customer.
CD and original slides received safely. Very pleased with your service – courteous, efficient and friendly. I like the extra touch of printing my drawing on the CD!
Very impressed with the results. Seeing the pics of my wife in Greece in1970, drew the comment from my son that he never knew I ran away with a 15 year old! 21 actually. Lots of laughs and embarrassment ahead. I am already digging through negatives now, but that will take some time. Thanks for the quality and the service.
Fantastic results. Really enjoy being able to watch old family slides on the tv! Amazing quality , great service. Thank you so much.
Just a quick Thank You note for the excellent job you did scanning all my 35mm slides and negatives. I have now had a good look through all the images and I am extremely pleased with the results.
Thanks for the scans …. They look good.
They are back and I am very pleased with them. I will be sending you some more in due course. Many thanks for a good service
Images received on Dropbox. Thanks for very speedy service. Images look very good!
Fast and efficient, can’t praise enough.
Hi Paul, just wanted to say many thanks for the scans, I received them all back yesterday complete with disc-label, nice touch! Many thanks
Thanks Paul. Scans are great. Having great fun dropping them on peoples Facebook page!
Many thanks, all files safely downloaded. I have compared the original and processed scans and I think you’ve done a splendid job – saved me a lot of time in Photoshop. Thanks for doing the scans so quickly,
I have been through all the photos on the memory stick, tweaking them where necessary and adding descriptions. It was a long job, (nearly 2 months!) but much less than if I had scanned them in myself 4 at a time, and not such good quality. So thanks you for a good job.
Just quick note to say how completely thrilled I am with the photos, thank you so much, it’s such a joy to have discovered these old family photos and be able to look at them, print them out etc.
From the start to the finish a fully professional service from Paul. All delivered as promised, on time, in price and excellent quality. Highly recommended. *****
Received disc and original slides today as promised. They look really great and because they are hi res can be blown-up considerably. What a brilliant way to view and download the files in Dropbox beforehand, enabling me to use them prior to discs arrival. Thanks for the speedy turnaround with emailed progress reports. Will definitely use you again for all my future scanning requirements.
I am delighted with the results and would not hesitate to use again.
Great polite professional service, could not have asked for better. All photos (150+) were available within 48Hrs for download – all satisfactory. Highly recommended!!
These initial scans are fantastic! I am delighted. Thanks very much for the super-fast service! I’m amazed you have scanned so many slides so quickly! I have paid your invoice. These photos really do contain some amazing family memories/moments and making them all available online is going to give them a new lease of life for many of our family and friends who will not have seen them since they were taken, many over 30 years ago. Great job, thanks!
Paul did a great job of scanning 400 of my dad’s old slides and I was really pleased with the fast service and the high quality of the digital images from the dedicated Nikon slide scanner, which were much better quality than I could ever achieve with my Epson A4 slide scanner. If you have any old 35mm slides that need scanning, don’t mess about trying to do them yourself as you’re wasting your time… Just get them professionally scanned. They’re all on my mum’s iPad now and she’s loving going through them with friends reliving old times!
I have safely received my order and the results are great. We are very pleased with the excellent quality so I just wanted to say thank you very much indeed.
These look fantastic, thank you so much. Our family will be so thrilled when I show them – so wonderful that these memories can be preserved like this!
I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the results of the slides you scanned for me recently. I’ve no idea how you managed to scan so many in such a short space of time – amazing! The quality of the scans is so good that you’d have thought the images were taken yesterday rather than 50 years ago, so I’ve been able to create a high quality photobook of family memories for mother’s 80th birthday next weekend.
Many thanks again, and also for the speedy return of the originals. If I need any more scanned I’ll certainly be in touch and will not hesitate to recommend your excellent service to friends/family if they need a similar exercise undertaking.
Thanks again and best regards.
Thank you Paul for completing my order so quickly. I am really pleased with the results especially because there are so many important memories in my photographs.
All arrived safely today
Haven’t gone through all the slides yet but the ones I have gone through look brilliant.
Many thanks for such great service and great results.
Very impressed with Paul’s service.
I tracked my dispatched packaged via Royal Mail and within under 2 hours of receipt by Paul the scans were available for download via Drop box,. Paul also emailed immediately to say the scan images were ready.
Thanks very much indeed.
My slides were found in a variety of shoeboxes in the loft, covered in dirt and dust. I didn’t expect much from them, but I’m delighted. There are photos here we’ve never seen before, and the iconic family photos are now back in circulation after decades of neglect. Accurate colours, excellent judgment calls on some really old and damaged slides, contrast all as it should be, perfectly cropped, and every slide accounted for – couldn’t have asked for more. Even my great-grandmother is now preserved for my kids! The service was brilliant, and faster than a speeding bullet. Will definitely be recommending you – thanks so much.
I’ve been meaning to get our family collection of about 5000 colour slides from the 1950s onwards scanned for sometime. It’s always seemed like an insurmountable task and then I had the worry of what if something went wrong or if they got lost or damaged.
I contacted Paul, who came back with a really reasonable quote very promptly and from the outset built my trust that he’d do a great job.
When I got my act together and shipped the slides to Paul, he confirmed when he’d received them, treated them with great care and started to scan the huge number I’d sent. As he progressed through the job, he sent me batches of files via Dropbox, so that each evening after work I could download them and see what new memories had been unlocked.
I think the biggest thing that’s prevented me from doing this before is simply not know who to trust. I can tell you I wish I’d found Paul before and done this years ago.
I absolutely recommend Paul at P D Scanning / Silver Dog Studios, he did a fantastic job, for a great price and the quality of the files is excellent too. Now to start thinking about the old family albums!
I was researching the cost of transferring my 35mm slides to digital and found Paul’s website. I was taken by the chaps track record and his costings. I collected my slides and the DVD today and they’re exactly what I was hoping for; high quality reproductions. I thought they looked good in the Dropbox preview that Paul lets you link to, but the copies on the DVD are even better.
In summary, great service at an excellent price. What’s not to like? Highly recommended.
DVD and slides arrived today, thanks very much.
Thanks for a fantastic service and high-quality product. The slides have been reproduced to a very high standard and the DVD is beautifully presented. There were a few businesses to choose from but we’re glad we picked PD Scanning. Excellent.
The box was safely delivered yesterday. I’ve looked through all 559 digital images and I’m very pleased. They are perfect (within the limitations of the original slides’ quality).
Thank you so much for your efficient service.
I sent some very precious, old family slides to Paul, I found his site from a google search. Initially I emailed to ask if it was a job he could do and got a very pleasant helpful response. I sent the slides on Thursday and on Friday when i came home from work there was email with jpg photos attached, wonderful memories and a great service.
Just a short note to say that I received the package of slides and Dvd today. I have downloaded the digitised slides, they are very good.
Many thanks for your excellent service
Just to thank you for doing an excellent job on the slides yesterday; and for a prompt, efficient, pleasant and professional service.
Selected PDS from a Google Search to scan some old family 35 mm slides , absolutely delighted with speed of service , quality of scans and level of communication.
I will use this service again.
Very timely turn-round and excellent communication. Scans are of good quality and very good value. Happy to recommend this service.
35mm slide scans: Thank you for the very prompt turnaround, Paul.
Certainly managed to revive some very old memories!
Good, professional prompt service. Scanning quality was excellent. I shall return!
Just to let you know the photos arrived today, and that I’m very pleased with the results! Especially the slides – I was thinking that they perhaps wouldn’t scan very well being quite old, but they are excellent!
We thought our slides of misspent youth in the 70s would never see the light of day. Over a hundred great memories brought back to life. Affordable, fast, efficient and brilliantly cleaned up. When I find the rest we’ll send them to you, Paul without hesitation! Thank you very much.
Very quick and exactly what was needed. To get good scans you need the right equipment and to get a lot done without spending a lot on equipment and taking too much of your own time, you need the right person with the right equipment. Paul at PDScanning is that combination – very pleased and highly recommended.
I was so excited to get the email from Paul telling me that my slides had all been scanned. Such a quick turn around. I was even more excited to see the final results – the clarity is amazing. I can highly recommend this service and will be sending more slides for Paul to work his magic on.
Fabulous job thanks.
Really brought them to life!
I’ve been through a lot of the slides now and am really impressed with the quality of the scanned images. They are far better than I had expected.
Thanks so much for doing the scanning for us, we are really pleased with the results. My family are really looking forward to seeing the pictures. Lots of work for me now to set up slide shows!
Thanks so much for those excellent scans of the pictures of our boys from way back. They arrived late yesterday and we’ve been in an excited huddle studying them ever since. We’re really pleased with the results and I’m most grateful for your super service.
I have just finished reviewing the photos you have scanned and am absolutely thrilled with your work!
Most of them I have not seen ever!
Just a shame that dad passed away a few years ago and is not around to identify certain people….
That said I am familiar with most of the places.
Great job done!
Thanks so much for your time & effort.
Keep meaning to email you and say how pleased I have been with all the slides you have scanned. They contain so many memories that were locked away in boxes. Excellent service which I am recommending to everyone. A couple more loads will come your way from me.
Thanks once again.
Wow! Those are amazing. Such good quality. There are so many memories there. My grandfather was an avid photographer, and 35mm slides were his favourite. These have been hidden away in a shoebox for decades. Thank you so much!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the work you have done, I can’t believe how quickly you did it and the quality is great. The photos are mostly of me and my brothers and sister when we were all very young. I’m not sure if I have ever seen some of them before but some of them jogged a few memories!!
I’m sorry its taken me so long to write this but I did want to let you know we thought the pictures were fantastic! We had a great evening viewing them on the big screen thinking back to that time and those incredible memories and being able to share them with friends and family who had never seen them before.
My husband was taken completely by surprise and absolutely loved it. Thank you for doing such a great job, helping me to keep it a secret, and making it all possible. I will recommend you if I come across anyone wanting similar work done.
Thank you for the excellent service you provided in copying my slides on to CD. The results are excellent and the originals have arrived back safely.
Great service to scan some old 35mm slides of some product design sketches I did many, many years ago. The turnaround was very quick and the very high res final scans came back as a download from a secure site – and my slides returned next day along with a DVD Disk. Very good value for money and the end result is superb. Thank you, Paul.
I’ve had a look and really happy with the results.
Many thanks once again, for your excellent service and taking such care with labelling boxes and everything else – exactly what I was looking for with these precious family slides and memories
Paul was very helpful, and offered a speedy, competitively-priced and high quality service. I’m very pleased with the results.
Superb service. Paul organised my bags of slides into folders, got the orientation right and the end result was great. Pricing was very reasonable and communication great. Would recommend anytime.
If you care for your photos this is the place to send them….extraordinary attention to detail obtaining outstanding results.
I strongly recommend Paul to anyone that needs special care and attention for their photos. I had piles of photos many over 100 years old. They were fading, in fact, some were nearly blank but somehow Paul was able to bring back the images . If you dont believe just how good his work is, ask for an example of a before and after shot of the scanning. It’s miraculous and the care of the photos was exemplary, photos were removed from old albums, to scan and then returned to be meticulously placed as though nothing had happened. The photos were returned, in very well protected and padded boxes with full tracking.
PDScanning converted approximately 100 x 35mm slides into digital images for me. The slides were over 20 years old and I was not expecting great results. However, I received a link for the downloadable images incredibly quickly and the quality of the photographs is absolutely outstanding. Made up! Thanks
Paul Scanned the first batch of my Antarctic Slides with amazing results. Super fast, quality service & excellent communication. I will definatley use Paul again & would highly recommend his service.
Thank you for an excellent service and the slides are really clear.
I am pleased I decided to have them saved rather than discarded.
I would certainly recommend your company to anyone wanting slides reproduced.
Thank you so much for the scans of my slides. I am delighted with them – a lot of happy memories, and some good laughs!! Your service was excellent.
Paul scanned 100+ of my ’80’s slides. Exceptional quality, customer service and attention to detail. Thanks again for a fantastic service will highly recommend!
I’ve viewed the photos and we are very impressed with the quality and the speed of your service. We would definitely use your service again and would recommend it to others.. We weren’t sure what you’d get as some were very old!
Very many thanks for your speedy work.
I have just had a look at the file and the results are great; I will be suggesting you to anyone who asks
Very many thanks for the scanning. We are thoroughly enjoying revisiting our son’s early years. We shall now be able to share the images with the rest of the family. My wife says worth every penny!
Once again, very many thanks.”
You gave exceptional service as I rung on Monday to say I was making a photobook for my daughter’s birthday and had left the copying of the slides until the last moment! I sent them that afternoon by recorded delivery and, you let me know they had arrived on Tuesday and on Wednesday sent me the link to all the images duly processed.
My originals were returned by recorded delivery on Friday together with a DVD.
Thank you so much for your excellent service, the slides and CD have arrived safely and I am just downloading the slides. I am so pleased with the results and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.
THANK YOU !
I’m made up with having these pictures more viewable ( the aeroplanes were a sentimental trip for husband!)
Thank you for such great service – Really prompt – good quality reproduction and so safely packaged for the return journey. What was an unexpected bonus was having the option to see them via pixieset included as well.
Slides and USB received today.
I’m so pleased with the results, thanks again.
All aspects of your service have been top class.
Thank you very much. I’m very impressed with the quality of the pictures and the service overall
I couldn’t be happier with the quality of the digital images received, the efficiency of the service, and the value for money.
Absolutely 5* service in all respects.
I had 33 slides and 15 colour negatives, all for a bargain of 25 pounds. The results as far as I can tell bring out the full resolution of the originals, so having a digital image of these is actually much better than the original!
A really fast and professional service, thank you Paul. I was delighted that these old slides from the 60s scanned so well and I will put them in a photobook so we can enjoy them. The days of getting the old noisy projector out are long gone and I hadn’t seen these family pics for decades.
Having procrastinated for years about getting some 80 year old b&w negatives scanned, and after sereral failed attempts, I found PDScanning, a simply superb service. Old negatives, large format negatives, 35mm transparencies and even larger sized trannies, Paul handles them all with the same care and attention to detail. And it’s not just the scanning, the delivery service and return of original materials is exemplary. I’m slowly getting all my old material scanned, and whether he likes it or not PDScanning will be doing it all. Truly a 5***** service.
Helpful, quick and very good quality service converting slides to digital images. The download was easy and didn’t need teh USB stick. Excellent quality images – I’ve just send a second batch I was so pleased. Very many thanks.
Easy to use
Good value for money
ALL ROUND 1ST CLASS SERVICE
What can I say. First class service. The quality of the scans from the 35mm slides, some taken 58 years ago, is amazing. Even some which had gone a bit mouldy are acceptable. Many thanks, must now get on with the photobook!
Excellent service and delighted to have slides many 40/50 years old now available to be seen by children and grandchildren to their great amusement and enjoyment Delighted with the results and most grateful to Paul Spencer for his efficient handling of the project and keeping me informed of progress Thank you very much Having not used such a service in the past I was a little nervous about sending irreplaceable slides to a company chosen from the internet I have no hesitation in recommending this company and its services
Could not be happier with the results.
Fast friendly correspondence with a quick turnaround of 380 photos scanned to USB.
Very efficient service and excellent communication. The digital files are great. We are very pleased with the work you have done. Thank you very much.
I had thought of purchasing a scanner myself but decided to let a professional do the scanning instead. I’m so pleased that I did. The service was efficient, the quality excellent and cost less than buying a scanner. It is great to see our wedding photos in colour as our album was in black and white. Thank you very much.
Quick turnaround to scan both slides and photos. Great quality results at a great price. Great communication, friendly service. I would highly recommend Paul at Silver Dog Studios.
I had several hundred prints I wanted digitised – varying from standard colour 35mm to historical black and white prints. I also had a few hundred old medium format colour slides needing scanning as well. Paul’s website was very clear as to the services and prices but inevitably I had some questions as to the best treatment for particular photos and Paul clearly explained the options and his recommendations. The service was very professional and everything came back with the required number of USB sticks and all was correctly divided into the folders I had requested. I can thoroughly recommend Paul. If I had more photos needing the same treatment I would certainly use his services again!
If you have a collection of slides, which includes priceless memories, but the slides are now languishing forlornly in a cupboard, then get in touch with Paul Spencer as soon as possible. We had just over 9000 slides which, in this digital age, needed to be converted to digital images or to be discarded. We chose to have them converted. Paul did this for us to the highest standard and within two months of engaging with the task.
Very happy! Had a load of old ‘snaps’ scanned from the 60’s / 70’s – a massive improvement on the originals, great quality – thanks!
I have used Paul’s services many times and his scanning is excellent.
Not only that but the level of confirmation and updates on progress are brilliant.
I have no hesitation in recommending him – good job at a quite incredible price.
