Preserve your Memories Forever

Format Conversion:

Preserve your family memories forever – you probably remember all of those old tapes sat on the shelf and dusty spools of film in the attic and the vague memories of what’s on them? First of all imagine seeing your parents running around as toddlers! Similarly, finally meet that grandparent you’ve heard the stories about! Imagine reliving that nativity play you were in at school, or seeing your grown up child again as a new born baby! Our format conversion service will certainly bring history to life!

Stuart Bailey Media can transfer all of the following formats to DVD, Blu-Ray or a digital video file (to share direct to Facebook or YouTube):

VHS, Hi8, VHS-C, MiniDV, Super 8mm, 8mm, Mobile Phone Footage

Prices are based on the running time of the material. A £20 minimum charge covers up to 2 hours of footage. Subsequent rates are £5 per half hour for tape or 5p per foot of film. Please contact me for a more precise quote based on your specific requirements.

Photo Retouching and Restoration

Furthermore, my format conversion process also applies to damaged photos. I will carefully take your negative or photograph and perform a High-Resolution scan to create a digital file. This will be edited using the latest professional software programs, followed by a painstaking reconstruction of the image to produce something you didn’t think possible! Tears will disappear, scratches and mould spots will vanish and the colours will be restored as closely as possible to what would have been their natural state. This can be very intensive work depending on how badly degraded the original image is. Prices are based on an hourly rate of £25, although it can be difficult to provide an entirely accurate quote before the restoration is started.

As an alternative I can simply digitise your old negatives and slides and put them on a disc or memory stick for you in JPG or TIF formats. This will allow you to edit them yourself or upload to Facebook etc. I perform this using professional scanning machines, producing very high resolution files with vast amounts of detail.
