VDOCS Photo Scanning Process
For believe "Qualtiy is the Reduction of Waste" (E. Deming). We developed a custom Photo-Scan-Process to achieve highest image quality with productivity and lowest cost. We achieve these goals by using a powerful combination of Best in Class Technology with Efficient Processes and Quality Control Processes.
Scanners: VDOCS is only using very high end color production scanners that optimize the image quality of each individually photo scan. No Toy Scanners or scanning each image by hand. The Benefit over hand scanning is that the conditions do not change from photo to photo. Plus this provides increased productivity that results is lower pricing than hand scanning.
Sensitive Document Feeders: The Feeder rollers are specifically buffered and are very soft. The sensitive feeder rollers are always kept meticulously clean. This secures a perfect feed and you will and can not see that the photo went through a feeding system. We scanned thousands and thousands of photos perfectly.
Image Quality: These scanners have powerful image control software to reproduce images as close as possible to the original. Our goal is to reproduoce the photo the most identical way and to provide you an image with lots of detail.
Visual Image Validation: The scanning process is a mechanical process that needs to be monitored on an ongoing base we validate every image while it is being scanned. The slightest problem can cause severe image quality loss.
Correcting Image Orientation: VDOCS offers a unique service: We rotate the scans to its correct orientation. Actually this service developed out of our quality insurance process while we are applying a 2nd visual quality process to check each image. And we offer this service FREE of charge.
Quality Photo Handling
After we received your box with Photos we handle your photos with great care. After the scanning is done we placing the photos the same way back in the box you send them to us. All Photos are only handled in a climate controlled environment.
You validate the final Quality
One additional unique offering from vdocs photo scanning services is that you validate the quality before we send you the photos back. vdocs will provide you an FTP download link for your scanned photos. You download the images and validate the quality. If there are certain images that you want us to validate the quality, you can send us an e-mail request and we will validate the image quality. Quality is determined as how close the digital scan looks against the photo. If for any reason the image quality can be improved, we will re-scan the image - NO additional cost for you and no questions asked!
One word about Digital Photo Image Quality
Color quality and image appearance is subjective. Our goal is to re-produce the digital image as close as possible to the original photo. When you transfer a photo to a digital copy and open the digital image on two different computer screen you will see differences in the image. This is a result that each computer monitor looks different. Our target computers are calibrated to match the color of the digital image as close as possible to the photo. Our goal is to get as much detail in the image.
Color Image Correction
Again color Quality is subjective. We offer color correction services, but the result will be more different than the digital scan of the original. Image Correction normally increases sharpness, contrast and eliminates certain ares (like red-eye's).
