In 1998 Max was launched as a company which provided photographic scanning services. Digitisation and scanning of photographs remains one of our cornerstone digitisation services today and photographic digitisation makes up a significant part of the work that we do. We have undertaken a large number of photographic digitisation projects including, recently, digitising Mercie Lack's and Barbara Wagstaff's fascinating photographic record of the excavation of the famous Anglo Saxon longship at Sutton Hoo. These images can additionally be viewed at the site itself.
We pride ourselves on the quality of the images we are able to obtain, regularly, consistently and over thousands of photographs. The digitised images often find their way into leading publications and exhibitions. Scanning photographic material for publication and archival purposes requires the highest levels of care and precision. It is essential that the full tonal range of the image is captured and not lost during the digitisation process. To preserve the optimum level of colour and detail on each image, we use the latest equipment and have a fully colour-managed production workflow.
