FAQ's

  • WHAT IS DPI? HOW MUCH DO I NEED?

    DPI stands for dots per inch.  PPI stands for pixels per inch.  These are basically the same thing.  The DPI value expresses the number of pixels per square inch that have been digitally captured.  So, 300 DPI means you have 300 pixels in width and 300 pixels in height across your 1" by 1" image.  Yes….that is 90,000 pixels. 

    Resolution, the amount of DPI, needed for printing increases as you increase the size of your prints.  Resolution needed for viewing on a screen is much less than the resolution needed for printing any of the standard sized photos.  So, you will be more than covered for screen viewing (TV or computer display) with our base scanning level of 300 DPI.

    In general, when scanning photos, a resolution of 300 DPI will allow you to print up to the size of the original that you are scanning.  So for a photo scan, if you have 4" by 6" photo and you want to be able to print from your scanned file up to a size of 4" by 6", then you would scan at 300 DPI.  Scanning at the 600 DPI level will allow you to print twice as big as the original.  

    A 4" by 6" photo scanned at 600 DPI would allow you to print up to 8" by 12", so that obviously covers you for printing up to the standard size of 8" by 10".  An 8" by 10" is more square in shape, it does not have the same aspect ratio as a 4" by 6" image or a 5" by 7" image.  Therefore, when making a different size print, there will be some cropping involved.  In this example, where we scan a 4" by 6" photo at 600 DPI, it allows you to print up to 8" by 12", but since the standard size is 8" by 10", you will have to crop some of the image when printing 8" by 10".

    In summary, 300 DPI will suffice for all screen viewing and printing up to the size of the original.  600 DPI is recommended for printing up to twice the size of the original.  For printing more than twice the size of the original, please contact us.

  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PHOTOS ON A USB Flash Memory Stick VS. A DVD?

    When we scan your photos, we create a digital image file (.jpg format) for each photo.  These are similar to the digital files created with the modern digital cameras, where a file is written on a memory card for each image captured.  We deliver these files on a USB flash memory stick.

    A DVD slideshow is a video created from your images.  The actual image files will not reside on the DVD, just the video of your images.  We choose to burn video on DVD so it will allow you to watch the video in the comfort of your own family room or on any computer that has a DVD drive.

    So, a USB flash memory stick is for the file delivery.  A DVD is for watching a video of your images on your DVD player (you can use your DVD remote to pause your playback at any time).  

  • DO YOU SCAN 35MM NEGATIVES?

    Memory Keepers does indeed scan 35mm negatives.  Turn those strips of film negatives from your old 35mm camera into digital files!  The cost is $0.55 more per image than slide scanning pricing (please see the “ slides” service page for all the details.  The delivery methods and other options are the same as we offer for slides (see WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PHOTOS ON A USB Flash Memory Stick VS. A DVD?)


  • WHAT IS DELUXE PACKAGING AS COMPARED TO STANDARD PACKAGING?

    Standard packaging includes the DVD with no label or titling on the outside of the disc.  The top of your disc will be a blank shiny silver surface.  Your disc will come in a full-size DVD case.

    Deluxe packaging includes your title on the outside of the disc as well as appearing on the DVD case cover insert on the face and on the spine of the DVD case.  In addition, the case cover insert can be removed and there are lines on the back for making any notes you would like to record.
