Who’s in your family photos?
Without names and keywords, your photos will not tell future generations your family’s story. Photographs fade away with the passing of generations, even if the images are safe. We all have family photos, where we can’t name the people or tell the story.

Foto2Digital digitizes slides at 4500 dpi standard (And offer 8500 dpi for special projects over 10,000 slides). Other services do offer a comparable 4000 dpi scan services and only those prices are compared here. Other services also offer 2000 and 1000 dpi services, but those prices are not compared here because the resulting digitized image cannot be reproduced to print with any clarity or brightness if below 4000 dpi. For more information Please see.
1000 slides fit 3 Archival sleeves and can fit about 7 Kodak carousels of 140 slides each (12 Kodak carousals with 80 slide capacity, totaling 1000 slides). 6 Archival sleeve fits a box and 4 such boxes can hold up to 10,000 slides for shipping (about 2 Cu Ft). These archival boxes, each with a capacity to hold 2100 slides is much more economical and a safer way to store and ship slides.

Foto2digital digitizes old Albums from which photos cannot be removed without damaging them. We digitize full album-pages at 600 dpi and save each individual photo as a separate file. We charge $2.50/page, irrespective of the number of photos on a single page.
Other services, such as Memories Renewed and DigMyPics, charge by photos at the rate of $.90 and $0.95 per photo, respectively. Since there are approximately 4 photos per page or nearly 400 to 500 photos per album, we used this average to estimate the price for 100, and 1000 album pages.
Most other services in the comparison table do not offer Album scanning service.
They made 30 year old slides look like brand new photos again and were SO fast! I highly recommend their services!!
Top marks! Excellent value for the money. All Foto2Digital's work seems to be of superior quality. I had a challenging set of images which I needed scanned and Karen worked with all my needs and completed the process in under a day! She is not only knowledgable and competent, she is full of excellent suggestions and tips I would've never thought of.
Excellent customer service! Very knowledgeable, helpful, and committed to doing quality work. I had 6,000+ family photos of all sizes, color as well as black & white, slides, etc, and they had them all scanned to digital format in less than a week. Quality is exceptional; I highly recommend Foto2digital!
I found Foto2Digital through an online search. I wanted to have about 3000 slides from the 1970s made digital for a gift to my parents. The service was friendly, kind, fast, and great quality at a reasonable price. Its incredible to have these photos close at hand after not being looked at for 40+ years.
I feel that Karin and Kazi have an excellent business. The quality of the scans was excellent. They are very personable and I would not hesitate to take more slides for scanning. It is great that they are in Wisconsin.
Meet Karen and Kazi
Karen: Four years ago, my mother wanted to preserve her many photo albums and slides. Going through them, I realized that digitizing was not enough. We needed to identify people and stories to preserve them. No preservation service existed.
I had managed a conversion to paperless at a Credit Union, making documents searchable and accessible. I wanted to do the same with photos. I identified my goals and began to create a process to not only save my photos, but help others preserve their family legacy. About Us
Kazi: With three decades of experience in IT management and infrastructure design, I had set up government and legal offices to go paperless. After thorough testing, we can now embed searchable data in digitized images, plus make it securely accessible anywhere. Just like online banking, you can access your account and find a photo among thousands. About Us
