Photographic & Digital Scanning

High Resolution Scanning Fine Art for Giclee Printing

The quality and size of the scan will determine the quality of the fine art print/giclee print. This is why it is incredibly important to have it done correctly.


We have the capability to produce a high-resolution scan that will allow us to easily manipulate the fine art image until it is an acceptable match of the original.

We use a mounted 4 x 5 camera along with a Better Light scan back, shot in properly calibrated studio lighting. With this equipment our scanning experts can capture millions of accurate colors with outstanding detail and clarity. Superior resolution, coupled with the lack of film grain and accuracy of focus, exposure and tone control makes our scans superior in quality, superior to large format film of any other digital camera system.

Better Lights digital scanning backs do not capture an image of the subject in front of the camera all at once, but rather by physically moving a unique, highly-optimized tri-linear color image sensor smoothly across the image plane, building up the image one line per color at a time.

A large preview image is used on the computer to make adjustments for precise exposure, color balance and contrast before the final image is captured. Each customized exposure is based on the original color palette and lighting conditions to make the final image as accurate as possible for large format reproduction.

Large format has always been the preferred camera for art reproductions, the larger the format, the better the reproduction of detail from the original. The more detail that is recorded from the original, the better that detail will be maintained in any size reproduction. From a small image on the internet to a high quality giclee reproduction.

We can also scan various sizes. From a small 4" x 5" image up to 4' x 8'. Anything larger can be scanned but additional charges apply. Call for inquiries. Whatever your imaging needs are, our experts can provide you with the best service at the best price.


Much like our scanning, photography can produce a high-resolution scan that allows for easy manipulation. But a photo scan has also proven to show even more detail using light to capture the tiniest variations in lines and colors.

Whichever method you choose you can be assured to receive outstanding quality.
