Film to DVD transfers may slightly enhance the footage with more vibrant colors and reduced scratches, dust, and lint from the film surface.

Photos to DVD transfers will preserve the quality of your photo as it appears on your print.

Slides to DVD transfers may receive slight color correction based on the image.
