The advantage of this service is primarily simplicity. If you don’t understand online ordering, don’t want to be bothered with online ordering and galleries or don’t want to pay with credit card or Paypal this might be a good option for you.  Your film will be processed in the same manner as with our Standard Comprehensive Gallery Service.  Once processed, it is scanned and then each picture refined to produce the best possible result. All images are then copied to CD or printed and sent back to you. As with all of our still film developing services the no image no charge guarantee will still apply*.


  • Simplicity – You just send us the film and we will do the rest.
  • Possible to pay by check – Unlike with our Standard Comprehensive Gallery Service it is easy to calculate a final price so payment by cheque is possible.
  • Price – In cases where you will want every single exposure on your film the end price can be a little lower than with our Standard Comprehensive Gallery Service.


  • No online shopping cart of (and the ability to choose) your pictures – Clients opting for our Standard Comprehensive Gallery Service get to see their pictures two or three weeks before we actually send them back.
  • No online preview – It will take longer before you see the results.
  • No option for a final additional hands on fix-up of your desired pictures – It is by having an on-line shopping cart of your images that we know which pictures you want so we can spend some extra time refining.
  • Price – If you end up not ordering most of your pictures, the end cost of the Comprehensive Gallery Service works out to be less than the Simple Service.
