Drum Scanning

Drum scanning is the finest quality, highest resolution method available to scan your transparencies and negative film. Candela delivers the best scans money can buy.  Each drum scan is performed on a custom basis to retain your film's delicate highlights, deep shadow details, smooth gradients, and excellent grain rendition. These scans are the best possible starting points for fine art prints.

Scans are available up to 8000dpi for all formats up to 8" x 10" film. 

How to order drum scans

Please click here for our order page and directions on how to send your film to us. 

File Size and Print Size

Print size is for files printed at 300dpi; larger prints are possible if printed at a lower resolution. Grayscale files will be 1/3 the size listed. We can scan up to 96 gigabytes in size if for some reason you need a huge scan.

Negative Film and Transparency Film

All scans are opened and checked for sharpness, and to remove any air bubbles. Negative film is converted to a positive state. No further post-scan cleanup or color/tonal corrections are included. 

Retouching and file mastering

We can perform further retouching to fully spot your files, and file mastering to create a print-ready master file - check out our custom printmaking service for more information.

File specs

How should I prepare my files and what file formats do you accept?

We accept Jpeg, Tiff, PNG and PSD. Please send uncompressed .jpg or .tif files. Be sure to flatten them and remove any alpha channels prior to uploading.

My file is over 100 megabytes in size! How do I send it to you?

No problem, you can use our large file upload page.

What resolution should my files be?

We prefer to receive files that are 300dpi at the size you want them printed. However we can make great prints from files as low as 150dpi. Please do not increase dpi to 300dpi if your file was not created at that size to begin with - this usually has a negative effect on print quality. We have a step-by-step file preparation guide for your reference. If you’re unsure, contact us.

We do examine each and every file before printing so if we thing your file will not print well we will contact you before printing.
