Learn to scan Slides, Negatives and Prints to digital:

Do you want to learn to scan your own photographs, 35mm slides or Negatives? We offer a training course using our scanners and software tailored for you.

This service is currently suspended while the Covid restrictions are in place. Our apologies. Details are left here for information and for when service is able to resume.  David January 2021.

We spend a morning teaching the basics of scanning using the scanner of your choice together with our software and computers. The afternoon is spent examining and editing your scans in lightroom and photoshop.

You will learn about dust and scratch removal at the scanning stage. You can, of course, bring your own images to scan and with our guidance be assured of a great result. The scanners we use are Nikon Coolscans, Epson V700’s Canon 9000f. The software we use includes Lightroom, Photoshop, Silverfast and Hamrick programs we also show you how to use Apple software. If you would like to use your own scanners or software please contact us as we may be able to deliver a days training for you specifically with your setup. We will also travel to deliver the training in your home or workshop our price for this service may have to include overnight accomodation etc. Please contact us for a quotation  – e-mail  davidjsack@gmail.com
