“Matt was extremely helpful, providing test scans and advice on the best way to scan my transparencies for the results that I needed. Colour rendition is extremely important to me and the scans compared very well against the originals. Matt was also able to provide the files in the exact format that I wanted, a service that other larger labs often don't provide without huge costs. A great service that I would highly recommend.”

“About two years ago I finally made the switch to digital processing of my photographs but this has required my extensive back catalogue of negatives and slides to be scanned. Whilst I could have purchased a scanner myself this would have required both cost and time commitments which I do not have. I wanted to scan my negatives once to the best quality available to allow for my future needs of printing, competitions etc.
I searched the web for a professional scanning service that would provide a more personal service than the large labs but still at competitive prices. Since sending my first few sets of negatives to Matt I have not looked back. The scanning service provided is second to none with high resolution scans with corrected exposures, tonal and colour range. This has reduced the amount of post processing required to produce the final image. In addition, Matt has also been able to provide a bespoke service to scan a collection of valuable historical glass lantern slides for my camera club. I have recommend Karmaan scanning to other photographers and continue to do so, if in doubt, send him some negatives you won’t be disappointed.”Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mberryphotography/

“Matt has done a terrific job, digitising over 20 years of holidays and family snaps captured on slides and negatives, some going back to the 1970’s. Though the emulsions on some of the photos were seriously faded, most images were successfully recovered and brought back to life. I now have over 10,000 images archived on hard disk, safe in the knowledge that time will not diminish the memories that they contain. Matt provided a great service!”Paul Holmes - Oxford
“Thanks for the fantastic scan - wasn’t expecting it to be so quick and easy. It’s not easy finding someone who seems to care for their work these days, and I can’t fault the scan you did for us”Chris Worrell - Marketing Manager, SLE Limited
“Dear Matt, Thank you for returning my slides etc., received yesterday afternoon. It is a delight to see my pictures again after half a century, looking as fresh in their new form as they did then. Thank you for the terrific job you did on bringing them back to life. Also your naming of the files is a very important aspect of how you work. I shall pass on your details to my audience, including several photographers nearly as old as me and who must have boxes of special slides.
Yours with pleasure, Robby (Stanley Robinson)”Stanley Robinson
Wow!! Just checked out the scans and they're looking really good, I'm so happy. Thank you so much for your great work, will definitely use your service again if I need to get more scans.
