Before starting a photo scanning project, it’s helpful to have reliable guidance. At FotoBridge, we not only provide photo scanning services, but we’re committed to assisting you with the whole process of preserving your family legacy.

You don’t have to be a professional photographer to possess professional looking digital photos. The beauty of scanning images yourself or using a photo scanning service is that you have the ability to manipulate the digital photo quality. But to fix a photo, you first need to understand the problem. Have you ever seen a photo that seemed to fall a little flat but couldn’t pinpoint the exact reason? That ‘flatness’ you saw was likely inaccurate tone reproduction, one of the most common imaging problems. Whether it occurs in the original picture or as a result of a scanning mistake, it’s easily fixed.
