What Size Photos Can I Send to be Digitized?

By Elaine Elliott

We’ve received a lot of questions lately about photo size for print images. To clear the air, we added the answer below along with several other pointers when submitting photos.

After you read through our requirements, let us know if you have any questions. We can’t wait to start digitizing your most cherished memories!
The maximum size we can digitize is 8.5 x 11 inches. This is the size of printer paper, and we rarely see images any larger. Odds are our Southtree team can digitize all your photos because polaroids are typically 2.1 x 3.4 inches and prints from disposable cameras are typically 4 x 6 inches.


We do not have a minimum size for print images. We’ve had submissions as small as 1 x 1 inches!


Additional Details to Remember:

 When sending in photos, one “item” or “set” can include 25 photos. It is the same cost as one photo, so you might as well send more. Within this set, your photos can range in size.


We request all photos be sent as looseleaf items in separate plastic bags or envelopes. Photos sent in albums or decorative frames cannot be processed. If photos were previously glued to paper or embellishments, cut them out individually. 


Our team will carefully update your treasured keepsakes by hand into a professional scanner. The final products are 12 megapixel digitized JPG images. Our photo scanner service can convert your print images into a thumb drive, disc set, or digital download.


Final Reminder:

  • Maximum print image size is 8.5 x 11 inches
  • There is no minimum size requirement
  • Most submissions are between 2-4 inches in height and 3-6 inches in length


If you have any additional questions, please read our FAQs page or contact us.
