Negatives TO CD TRANSFER SERVICE

WE TRANSFER YOUR Negatives TO DVD, BLU-RAY OR USB

Negatives and transparencies to CD or DVD

After a camera film is chemically developed, the strip shows a series of small negative images. It is usually then cut into sections for easier handling. Each of these photographed images may be referred to as a ‘negative’ and an entire strip or set of images may be collectively referred to as ‘the negatives’. They are the master images, from which all positive prints will derive, so they should be handled and stored with special care, although most are simply stored in the front pocket of a folder of photographs!

To get the best-quality images from your negatives, we copy, convert, and transfer using the latest high-resolution capture equipment at an approximate resolution of 6,000 × 4,000 pixels. We then retouch the images, performing basic colour correction free of charge. Finally, we deliver the final photographs as a slideshow on a DVD (including the original photos for you to print from) or on USB.

Using a studio-grade photo printer, we can also reproduce small quantities of photographs from 6 x 4 up to A3+.

Negatives

Negatives History

Calotype or talbotype is an early photographic process introduced in 1841 by William Henry Fox Talbot. Talbot made his first successful camera photographs in 1835 using paper sensitised with silver chloride, which darkened in proportion to its exposure to light.

This early “photogenic drawing” process was a printing-outprocess, i.e. the paper had to be exposed in the camera until the image was fully visible. A very long exposure – typically an hour or more – was required to produce an acceptable negative.

Negatives were once commonly made on a thin sheet of glass rather than a plastic film.
