Guarantee: If for some reason your download fails, don't worry, just contact us right away, and we will see that you get your file. We guarantee that the image scan will be in focus and free from dust and scratches, and we will replace any file that is defective, or not the image you ordered. In the rare event that a satisfactory replacement is not available we will issue a full refund. Should a refund be required, you must contact us within 7 days of purchase, and agree that you have not used the unwanted image for any purpose other than viewing and will destroy all copies in your possession.

Film photography differs from digital photography in that it has a grain. Negative film has a more pronounced grain than slide film. Each image in the gallery states whether or not it was scanned from a negative or a slide. Grain is not considered a defect, and in some cases, may even be desirable. If grain is an issue, then we recommend that you not order images scanned from negatives that you plan to print larger than 8"x10".

Differences in computer monitors and color management settings may cause the colors of an image viewed online to be slightly different when viewed locally, and is not considered a defect.
