Media Conversion Pricing
Photos ($0.49 each)
Photos (2” x 3” up to 8” x 10”) are scanned at 600 dpi and saved as a JPEG file. Bundle in groups of 25 into their own zip-top bag with label. See full price list for flat bed scanning pricing for smaller and/or fragile photos or drawings.
Slides ($0.49 each)
Each cardboard or plastic sleeve mounted photo, sized for slide carousels, is scanned at 2400 dpi and saved as a JPEG file for flexibility and ease of viewing. When sending slides in, please bundle them in groups of 50 into their own zip-top bag with a label.
Photo Albums ($1.25 per side of page)
Photo Albums up to 12” x 17” are scanned at 300 dpi. Each page is saved as a JPEG file. Make sure to securely pack your albums and label each one.
Negatives ($0.69 per image)
Negative sizes up to 3” x 3”, scanned at 2400 dpi. Price is per image, not per strip. Mark images you don't want scanned by placing a non-permanent sticker directly on the negative image. Bundle in groups of 50 into labeled zip-top bags.
Video Tapes ($24.99 per tape)
Any video tape media (VHS, VHS-C, Beta, 3/4” U-Matic, DV, Mini DV, DVD media) will be converted to a high quality MP4, then saved to a USB Flash Drive. Color and contrast will be corrected, and audio levels will be normalized. Label each tape.
Films ($0.29 per foot)
Each 8mm, Super 8mm, and 16mm film reel is scanned with an HD Video Capture unit, using state-of-the-art LED lamp technology to reproduce accurate colors without the heat damage caused by traditional projector lamps. Digital files are loaded onto a USB Flash Drive. Label each reel.

Patti Vellano, Pittsburgh, PA
Forever is a fantastic answer to taking old photos and making them digital so future generations can enjoy them. I thought it was too good to be true as I sat among a sea of photos. It’s very personal, and very professional.
Marcy Holquist Duff, Squirrel Hill, PA
Anything prior to 1990 is gone. Our sewage pipe cracked and anything that touched the floor was thrown out. We lost a lot of things. If Forever was available sooner, I would have been able to preserve them. Now, Forever works closely with me to ensure that I find ways to digitize all of my memories.
Ann McFadden, Squirrel Hill, PA
My Dad and I had a conversation about how neat it would be to find a single place to collect and cherish all of our family things and Forever is the perfect solution for that. Dad was excited about it, and then he was really moved when he saw pictures that he hadn't seen in years.
