Photographs

TownsWeb Archiving’s digitisation technicians have a wealth of experience in scanning photos, offering you an expert photo scanning service.

Any references on loose or mounted photographs (front or back) can also be captured, and our digitisation technicians are experienced in the removal of items from the wallets or envelopes in which they are stored. Our technicians can also enhance photos by straightening and cropping.

Digitisation protects your photographs from loss or damage and makes them quickly accessible. We can create output formats in TIFF and JPEG (JPEG2000), or any other industry-standard image format you may require. We can also create further surrogate files or reduced resolution for the creation of thumbnails, for example.

Digitisation Frequently Asked Questions

TownsWeb Archiving uses specialised, flatbed scanners as well as a combination of overhead non-contact high-resolution cameras to digitise photographs. Documents are always fully supported throughout to safeguard the capture of your precious, old and fragile material.

All files are captured by our highly trained digitisation technicians using overhead, daylight balanced, non-heat producing lighting, before undergoing a formal quality assurance checking procedure. The final step in the process is the delivery of your electronic files by hard drive.

Capture the data within your Photographs

Digitisation places your photographs in the perfect format to capture the valuable data contained within them, offering great potential for system integration and online access and discovery.

Capture the data within your collection with handwritten transcription, identifying any handwritten or cursive script within images and converting this to searchable and machine readable textual metadata through a process of scanning. Using bespoke transcription validation software we can guarantee highly accurate results, carrying out any preprocessing measures required and outputting to any format.
