Photos onto CD or hard drive

I've got some really gorgeous photos of my daughter and her friend taken on a cruise - so am unable to get any copies done. I've tried scanning the photos on my Lexmark X5150 and sending them to file but the quality is nowhere near as good as the originals and the black and white one taken on a white background misses bits out! So my question is - how can I get them onto CD or get more prints from the originals that are the same quality? Where do I go for help? (besides HUKD!!)

No, only one copy of each photo :cry:

I'm sure there are photograhic shops out there that can print from photo. I know there are ones that advertise "repairing" sepia ones so they should be able to scan the picture and print out. Try your local photo printing shop and if they don't I'm sure they can suggest other outlets to try.

Sorry to state the obvious but, why dont you go to a high street photo shop such as Boots or Jessops?

This shouldnt be a problem so long as the photo is not copy protected (such as the stamp of a professional photographer on it) They can produce another negative of the image and you can get additional prints and the items put on CD. It aint cheap but, it means you have a 'digital' copy and a negative.

We have a Boots locally so I will give them a try - never thought of them! All our local photographers no longer have premises that you can visit so I was truly stumped!
Thanks - rep given to all

Can I too ask a question; I have about 300 old 6x4 photos I want to put onto disk but to scan each one individually would take forever. Any ideas of a quick cheap way, eg are there scanners you can feed photos through?

i would have thought same answer as above. take to a photo shop/boots/jessops etc and see what they offer. wouldn't know the cost though but i'd say the more you have the less the cost per print.

I already asked at my local photo place and we were running into the hundreds of pounds, honestly! Thats why if there was a scanner you could feed them through it would be cheaper to buy one myself.

use a digital camera to take pictures of the hard copy photos, then transfer them to your PC
