Thanks for visiting the preview of our new photo site. We're working very hard to give you a great experience on the new site, and appreciate all your feedback (good and bad) as we develop it.

Negative Scanning

The chemical reactions that took place to provide your media don’t stop, meaning your prints, slides and negatives are slowly degrading and eventually your images will fade away. Do not worry, through the latest state of the art scanning and digitisation equipment we can expertly convert your precious analogue memories into digital format for safe keeping to preserve and share those precious memories with friends and family for generations to come.

We have all got packs of negatives at home, many separated from the original prints that were developed from them. At ASDA Photo Legacy we can convert them into digital formats allowing you to view them again and again, sharing with friends and family alike.

Processing Notes: Please ensure your negatives are in strips of 4 images before sending.

Scanning Resolutions

ASDA Photo Legacy will convert your precious analogue memories into high resolution digital formats, known as ‘jpegs’. You will be able to view these images across all of your multimedia devices and for those of you that wish to utilise those images on prints or photo gift products these are the dpi’s for the formats digitised:

Other Media Types

If your media type is not specified here please contact us and we will advise you on how to process your order.

Format Resolution
Prints 600dpi
Slides 4000dpi
Negatives 4000dpi
Small Negatives 1200dpi

Additional Copies

With every order you place your precious memories will be returned to you on a PC ready DVD to view your images from. If you would like extra copies to share with friends and family just select the volume that you require during the checkout process, or if you would like them on a portable memory stick just select this preference to accompany your order.

Premium Scanning

For those of you who are not confident with editing your newly digitised images or just simply don’t have time, Premium Scanning can be added to your Prints, Slides or Negatives digitisation order. All of the images within your order will be rotated to the correct orientation, cropped to trim off any unwanted area and sorted into folders specified by you.

  • A free Legacy Box to protect your items during transit.
