I'm happy with the slide scans. I've copied the
disks ( DVD ) and printed some of the
impressed with your attention to detail.
photos (scans) are great, as usual. Thank
goodness you decided to get into this business."
thanks so much, slides arrived yesterday and the
scans look great,
your check is going out today.
"Excellent work & really fast."
Jim. Scans look great.
nice job. Thank you Jim."
Jim, just wanted you to know I got my photos
tonight and they are great! Thank you so much. I
will send you the check in tomorrow's mail.
04/03/11 Jim, Thank you for the quality work and time you put into converting my mother's old slides from the 50's into DVD format. I was able to print photos from the DVD for her as a Christmas gift and
she was so pleased with the results. I will keep your business card on file in the event I have more slides to digitize. Thanks again for walking me through the process and answering all my questions. Sincerely,
11/29/10 Hi, Jim. I just looked at the disks. They are amazingly good! I cannot believe how well they came out. They are all downloaded onto my computer and ready to be made into book form. We had our slides of Peru transferred to disks by another source, and they did not come out well at all. When the holiday season calms down, I will dig them out and send them to you and see if you can work your miracles with them. Again, many, many thanks!
1/01/10 "My parents enjoyed the DVD's so much." "Thank you for helping us to give my parents a much enjoyed gift."
5/10/09 "Jim, I'm very happy with the scans. I'll be sending more in from time to time as I have time to work on them. Thanks.
2/20/09 Jim; The check for my recent order will be mailed from Colorado tomorrow. Thanks for the nice work with my family heirlooms.
1/16/08 I just opened the files. They are just perfect. I appreciate your promptness and ... needless to say the very professional work! I am very satisfied.
9/15/09 I received the order and wish to congratulate you for a job well done.
0/01/08 Hi Jim, I received the pictures and they look great. Nice work! I sent payment, it will arrive by Friday. I'm looking around in case I have any additional slides to scan.Thanks for your top notch service.
9/16/08 "Hey Mr. Harrington, I got the pictures last week, right as we were preparing for the Hurricane. I had a look today and they are brilliant." "Mailing the check as we do have mail service. I will have some more projects. I may need to postpone a little as we recover from Ike."
6/15/08 "If you're looking for a digital transfer service that does superb work and takes particular care of its customers, you needn't look further than this one. I submitted a number of somewhat underexposed slides for Jim to transfer and received a couple of emails and a telephone call explaining how and why the digital images probably wouldn't be as good as I thought they might be--less detail, less clarity, and so on. When I received the disc (and a refund for half of the charges as an apology for "inferior" results), I was amazed at how beautifully the images had transferred. Obviously I was dealing with a perfectionist, and a very nice one, too. Jim is not the least expensive man in his field, but if you don't mind paying a reasonable price for matchless results, he's your man.
5/22/08 "Jim, the scans are stellar! Thanks for getting them done and back to us so quickly."
3/30/08 "I received the package yesterday and everything is in good order. I just watched the slideshow and know the children will enjoy them. Thank you very much. I am sending the check this morning by regular mail."
11/23/07 "Thanks and happy Thanksgiving. I've been so pleased with your service.
3/6/008 Hello Jim! I was quite pleased with your service as well as the prompt processing. I was glad to see that so many were able to be recovered. Some it appears were not that great originally! I only viewed them on a light table so it was a bit tuff to sort them.
Will put a check in Friday's mail for the balance. I'll be passing your info to my neighbor in hopes that he too can avail himself of your expertise!
1/30/08...finally had time to look over the new images. Fantastic! Thank you so much for your time. I am really happy with the product and will use your services again.
9/22/07 "Thanks again for your excellent and highly professional work on this. I really can't thank you enough - the project would not have happened without you.
08/13/07 "I have looked at the slide scans very carefully and they look terrific. Thanks for a great job."
5/10/07 The slides look great! Thank you so much. I'll put a check for the balance in the mail tomorrow!
3/23/07 "The slides and DVDs arrived. They are phenomenal. I still haven't looked at the enhanced images yet! They all look so good that as soon as I can I'm going to send you slides of the images that I had scanned myself previously, because yours are so much better than mine.
4/01/07 "Hi Jim, We received them yesterday and they are FABULOUS! I am very excited! The check went in the mail today. THANK YOU!
03/07/07 "I was very happy with your work and expect to continue sending you projects from time to time." "Thanks very much for your fast turnaround. The postman dropped it off Saturday.

This weather is brutal! Best regards,"
01/12/07 "DVD looks good. Check is in the mail. Thank you for a good working relationship these past couple of years. 100% of our slides are now safely converted to digital. Thank you for a great service and great "customer relations".

8/5/05 They (the scans) look great -- thanks a lot! You should have received my check by now, and add me to your list of highly satisfied customers.
9/24/04 "You are one good person to do business with !"
5/22/05 "I was excited when I got to view the photos from the '70s now I can easily share those photos with those old friends! I was amazed to see the color saturation in the one washed out (over exposed) photo which I sent. The scan is better than the original in terms of color! I am very satisfied with the quality of the scans . . . and with the speed at which the order was completed. Check will be mailed on Monday. Thanks again for your high quality and rapid service!

I used them in the iMovie video presentation that I created for them on my Macintosh. They were perfect. Thank you so much for working so hard to make these unusual slides usable."
3/9/04 "Thank you so much for transferring my old slides into digital. You did a great job."
4/29/04 "Jim, Great job scanning our slides! Having the (free) PowerPoint version was really helpful as well.
3/27/04 ..." just finished looking over the 168 slides that you scanned for me. To say I am thrilled would be an understatement. Your work exceeds my wildest expectations! The check will be in the mail today and I will be getting you another shipment of 200 to 300 slides within the week."
3/7/04 "I am so pleased to have the 35 MM slides in a format that is easily retrievable. Thank you so much for doing a great job for me and my future generations. I will definitely recommend your services..."
03/20/03 - "I received the digital slides last night. The pictures are fantastic. I couldn't be happier. The quality is much better that the original. I will mail you a check for the balance tomorrow."
"A couple of Marines found me after 35 years to share their memories of my brother, Ron Moore, who was killed in Viet Nam. They wanted copies of any pictures I owned. I had over 300 35 mm slides and it would have been too costly to get negatives and reprints made. Then I stumbled across Jim's website and the miracle happened. In a weeks time, I now have CD's to send to the several Marines who requested one, and the quality of the pictures are absolutely amazing.. and I can print them! Jim's expertise and professionalism is almost surpassed by his kindness, personal caring and attention to detail. I would recommend his service to anyone interested in wanting to preserve and share those lifetime memories at a really affordable price. I would never have shipped my slides all the way from Houston to Massachusetts if I didn't trust that I would receive the excellent results and I am truly pleased. Sincerely,
The slides and the DVD of the scans arrived safe
