Historic Photo Scanning

Serving Virginia, Maryland, & Washington, DC

Preserving historic photos digitally can allow these images to endure and be enjoyed by future generations. Digitization of historic photos can even make them more accessible by allowing them to be added to searchable catalogs–exposing more people to the photos than was ever possible before.

Today, millions of historic photos have been scanned and made accessible through libraries, museums, government organizations, universities, and more. Scanning historic photos, however, can require precision equipment and trained handlers to ensure that photos are not damaged or destroyed.

Trained Historical Photo Scanners

All phases of your historical photo scanning process are handled by a trained and experienced team of photo digitization experts. We work closely with our clients to ensure that your needs are met and your photos are preserved without damage.

We can scan historical photos of nearly any size, whether a small 4 x 6 or a a large poster sized image. Our large assortment of scanners and digital imaging equipment provides our clients with the most cost-effective, and highest quality scanning available.

We also have a specialized team dedicated to on-site scanning projects, for projects that are not well suited for transporting. Modern Image provides the equipment, software, personnel and, most importantly, project management for successful document imaging conversions. Projects can range from a single technician for a few days to ten or more individuals over a period of weeks.
