What is Photo Legacy?

ASDA Photo Legacy provides the latest in scanning and digitisation technology, allowing you to have all of your treasured memories transferred to digital format and returned to you on a CD/DVD or optionally purchased USB.

All of your priceless family analogue images and videos slowly degrade over time; the only way to ensure their safety is to get them digitised so they are secure for future generations to enjoy. Don’t worry if you have photos that are damaged, ripped, fading, or missing parts - they can all can be digitally repaired with our fantastic Image Restoration service.

You will receive your fully digitally restored image back on DVD or optionally purchased USB, often in better condition than when the original image was first produced. ASDA Photo Legacy is not just about your own memories; it is perfect as a gift to loved ones, digitising their memories and repairing those that were once considered lost for them to remember and enjoy again.

The new ASDA Photo Legacy service enables you to turn all of your negatives, slides, prints, video tapes, cine film and camcorder tapes into digital media to enjoy again and again on your TV, PC or mobile device.

Simply order the appropriate digitisation service online, send your media to us in the secure Memory Box provided and let us do the rest. Within 10 days your original media and digitised memories will be returned to you so you can start enjoying their new lease of life!

We know that no one can put a price on your memories, so at ASDA Photo Legacy we do everything in our power to safeguard them for you, which is why we use the robust ‘Memory Box’ to transport your media from to us and through processing.
