    Hi all,

    my friend and i have a photo of trucks where his dad and my dad drove in the 70's. We want to get it scanned to share, but its proving difficult. Tried Boots/Jessops etc, but their scanners only do upto A4!!
    The photo is 48cmx38cm. Anyone know where it could be done?

    There are some print production shops that will scan large unframed pictures.

    how much you looking to spend and if you dont mind me asking what do you want to do with the scans
    ie print, screen save you get the picture (no pun intended)

    Photobox is an online service, you have to upload your images, you would need scans first, there great for photobooks though

    You could scan it in 4 sections and join them in photoshop, my skills in that area are not so good, but there is probably one or two folks here who could do a good job.
