Slide Scanning Services 

Some scanners are better suited for different types of film than others. If you are looking to convert your slides into digital files, michaels offers the choice of 3 scanners depending on your needs - two designed specifically for E-6/slide film and the other, a virtual drum scanner offering the highest quality scan for all film types.

For each scanner, we offer multiple levels of our scanning services which provides flexibility in file and print size.
