Scan Sizes

We use a variety of scanners in our workflow. All scans are output as .jpg files at 72dpi and emailed via dropbox link. These can be converted to 300dpi in a photo editor for printing. Maximum recommended print sizes for each scan type are listed below.

Feel free to email us at develop@hillvale.com.au for file sizes if your film type is not listed, or discuss with us if you're after a different scanner to our default workflow. 

Please see our pricelist for more info on pricing.
