We have just installed the new software and hardware package from Wehrli! We now have even better value scanning costs that include the Dust & Scratch.
Our Wehrli RM-5 Scanner is equipped with Dust and Scratch removal, we have the Spot & Vignetting Software, the new faster scanning times and we are able to scan from 8 to 14 bit up to a resolution of 8um (3175dpi). This unit will allow us to scan images up to 10.75" x 12.5" for cut sheet or 10" x10" for rolls. This unit will be added to our current RM-1 scanner. We will be able to provide scans of images at 3175 dpi (ppi) with the accuracy we have come to expect from Wehrli Scanners. We also have the Chromira 50 Digital Photographic Enlarger which allows us to provide a digital image and a photographic enlargement for about the cost of a traditional color enlargement produced directly from film.
With our Wehrli RM-5 we are scanning up to 4 Microns or 6350 ppi (as of 12-23-2010) from rolls up to 500 foot in length. With our Wehrli RM-1 we are scanning up to 12 microns or 2116 ppi.

With our Scanner Hardware updates we also purchased SOFTWARE UPDATES:
After reviewing the following impressive test images we have also decided to purchased the newest software package from Wehrli & Assoc. This software package will allow us to make images look as if they were printed on a electronic dodging printer as you will see in the following images. We will be finalizing a costs for this based on the images provided but at the immediate time we will be charging $5/frame for a few images.
Over 300 scans please contact us.
** File size from a 9x9 image may not open in many imaging programs such as PhotoShop prior to CS Versions from full frame scans due to the over 30,000 pixels in both directions. Cropped areas are normally not an issue.
For other format sizes contact us for a price list. We are currently working on other format sizes for our clients that use 120/220, 70mm, 4x5, 5x7, 8x10 and so on.
