I had never used a scanning service before and wanted to compare the results of two services. I sent 35mm slides to digmypics and a well known competitor. The difference in the results was night and day. Scans by the other company had large amounts of dust and important areas of the images were cropped out. The digmypics files were totally dust free and cropping was miniscule if any. A little time in Lightroom was all that was needed to see the images I originally shot. I will always send my slides and negatives to digmypics.
