Services

PandaPix provides the following transfer & digitizing services

Digitize Photos (& Photo Albums!)

We scan your photos at a standard resolution of 400 dpi. We can digitize oversize prints, framed photos, or other memorabalia at a nominal charge. We also offer photo editing services.


We also digitize photo albums using a high resolution camera & macro lens and special lighting. Please contact us for a quote.

Digitize Slides

We digitize slides using a high-quality digital camera with a macro lens and a highly modified Kodak slide projector. The resulting image quality is equal to or better than scans obtained from high resolution scanners.


Slides must be in landscape orientation. You can provide the slides as individual slides in groups of 40 slides, or loaded into 80-slide carousels. We can loan 80-slide carousels upon request. Contact us for more information about how to provide slides to us for digitizing. We will be glad to provide sample digitized slides upon request.


Please note that we do not clean slides, so you'll want to make sure that your slides are clean.

Video transfer services

We transfer your home videos to DVD format. We will transfer multiple home videos to a single 2-hour DVD (most of our competitors limit you to two videos per DVD).


In addition, we provide FREE AVI digital master files of your home videos (none of our competitors do this). These AVI files may be easily played (and edited) on your home computers, smart phones, or tablets.


We transfer VHS, VHS-C, Hi-8, Digital 8, and Mini-DV video cassette formats. We will also provide an index of your home videos (usually organized by date) to enable you to easily locate your favorite videos. We can also create a montage of thumbnails of your home videos upon request.

Digitize Negatives

We digitize negatives using a high resolution digital camera with a macro lens and special software.


If you are not sure which negatives you want to convert, you can save money by utilizing a lower cost option. Just insert your negatives into clear plastic negative archival sheets (we can provide these). We'll take a picture of the archival sheets and convert them to low resolution digital "contact" sheets. You can then decide which negatives you would like digitized at high resolution.

About

Paul and Anne Briggs of Lexington, Kentucky, are dedicated to preserving sentimental videos, photos, slides, and negatives in digitized form. This local, family-owned business allows you to hand-deliver your treasured family photos without the worry of packing and shipping.


Paul came up with the idea of PandaPix in 2010, initially looking for a way to convert old photos to digital format. He realized that this would be something that a lot of people would want, and he soon expanded into conversion of home videos, slides, and negatives and other non-digital media.

Need a photo slideshow for your wedding or graduation and running out of time to scan all your old photos? Maybe you're creating a scrapbook for a Christmas gift? Or perhaps you want to email a digitized memory to a friend, but can't.


Entrust your family memorabalia to PandaPix:


We're a locally owned and family operated business.


No worries about packing and shipping your videos, photos, slides, or negatives.


We individually transfer/scan each video, photo, slide, or negative ourselves.


We guarantee a professional, timely conversion from hard copy format to digital format.


We help you organize and store your lifetime of home videos, photos, slides, and negatives.

Revisit & share old memories time and again with the ease of digital format. Easily store your memories in multiple locations (including the "cloud") to ensure your memories are protected.


Our goal is to enable you convert your precious memories into high quality digital files at an economical cost.


We use innovative digitizing technology to efficiently create low-cost, high-quality digital files that you can enjoy on your computers, iPads/tablets, or smartphones for years to come.


And, if you are just wanting to find out "what's inside the boxes" - maybe you have hundreds of videos, photos, slides, or negatives - you don't need to do a high-quality scan of each and every negative or slide. We offer various ways to efficiently create standard quality digitized files which allow you to keep the conversion costs to an absolute minimum.


You can save even more if you are willing to do some of the preparation work yourself! Then, when you've examined the standard quality files, you may select the specific negatives or slides for which you would like higher-quality digital files. In addition, we offer various ways to help you organize your digitized file collection (including the many photo files you probably already have on your computer).

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

General

Why should I scan my home videos and photos in the first place?

Your home videos, photos, slides, negatives are irreplaceable family treasures which are highly valued at PandaPix. Digitizing your videos, snapshots and memories allows them to be preserved digitally and remotely (in case of a home disaster). It also protects your videos and pictures from the degradation of time, heat, light, scratching, and color shifting which harm videos and original photos, slides, and negatives.

Digitizing saves your videos and photos in the state they are in, prior to any further deterioration. In addition, digitizing allows you to readily organize and access and share your memories on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Converting your old family videos to DVD or digital avi files will allow you to watch your favorite memories long after your camcorder or VHS player has expired or has been replaced by the latest technology.

Will my photos be kept confidential?

Yes. Only PandaPix staff will see your photos and videos.

Are my originals returned to me?

Of course! Every photo, negative, slide, and video will be handled with tender loving care and will be returned in the same condition as it was delivered to us.

Can I view my photos online?

Yes. When you pay for your order in full you may view your digitized photos, slides, and negatives online.

How long will it take to get my digitized photos/videos back?

It depends on the size of your order. As a general rule of thumb, you can expect to have your digitized memories and originals within two weeks of PandaPix receiving them.

Is packaged pricing available?

Yes! Contact us directly to receive a custom price for your memory digitizing needs.

How do I choose a resolution?

The default resolution for scanned photos is 400 dpi, which will work fine for reprints. All slides and negatives are digitized at high resolution which will allow you to make large prints if desired.

Photos

May I leave my photos in my albums when I drop them off at Pandapix?

No. PandaPix scanning prices assume that all photos have been removed from their holders and do not have any sticky residue attached.

Can the color of my photos be enhanced?

Yes, PandaPix offers digital photo enhancing services.

Videos

How many minutes of video fit on a DVD?

Standard DVDs store up to 120 minutes of video. PandaPix will transfer up to four ½ hour home videos to one DVD. We also recommend that you have your videos converted to avi format, which may be saved on computers or thumbdrives, and which offers a permanent way to save your videos for future playback.

Negatives

Can you digitize old negatives?

Yes, one of the unique services PandaPix offers is digitizing of 35mm, 110mm, and medium format negatives.

Slides

Can you digitize slides?

Yes, PandaPix also offers efficient slide digitization as well. We prefer that you provide us with your slides in carousels. If you don’t have slide carousels, we will loan them to you.
