Output images can be converted into digital formats to include RAW, JPEG, JPEG2000, TIFF, BMP and Adobe PDF in full colour or greyscale. Indexing, Metadata tagging, OCR and all forms of image processing can be offered as with all our digitisation services.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT GLASS PLATE NEGATIVES

On one surface of the glass plate negative it has a light sensitive emulsion.  The emulsion is very fragile and requires gentle handling. Our technicians are skilled in handling delicate valuable media and using preservation tools such as gloves and careful cleaning products we can prepare your glass plate negatives, before returning them back into their relevant envelopes or protective casings.
