What is the Best Size Photo to Send for Digitization?

By Katy Aguayo

The colder months are upon us and that means it’s the time of year when people start to feel nostalgic. Family comes around more often, warm and cozy meals are cooked and shared with the ones you love the most, and new memories are made while old ones are being revisited through photo albums and scrapbooks

If you’re like the rest of us, you probably have a large collection of print photos stored in shoe boxes or in photo albums around your home, collecting dust until this time of year when you break them out to take a trip down memory lane with loved ones.

But what good are all those pictures doing if you’re not admiring them more often?

Now that we live in a digital world, it’s so much easier to look at and enjoy more recent photos that you can access on your phone or computer. The good news is that your older, print photos can be digitized and added to your digital photo collection quickly and easily through Southtree! We can digitize most consumer formats of photos, including stacks of prints, 35mm slides, and 35mm negatives so that you can get all your digitizing needs met under one roof.


If you have a rather large collection of photos, you may have multiples of the same images in different sizes. You may be wondering for digitization purposes what photo size is best to send in to get the highest quality scan. Well in this case, it’s the bigger the better! In general, the larger the photo, the better the scan will turn out.

The largest print photos that we can digitize are 8.5x11”. As long as your photo is 8.5x11” or smaller, we can scan it and digitize it! So if you have multiples, send us the largest ones and we’ll give you a digital copy in return that you can keep on your phone, computer, or any device. 

At Southtree, we strive to give you the absolute best service and product possible. When you send in your prints for digitization, our experts will take great care of your precious memories and digitize them so that you and your family can continue to enjoy them for years to come. With this upcoming holiday season, make sure you get your photos, videotapes, film reels, and more digitized so that you can keep those special moments from the past alive.
