Comments: Photographic question

There's definitely a way of getting 35mm film into digital images - there are specialist scanners for the purpose. I'm sure there are many online services to do this, but alas I've never had need for it. What I have done is to scan hundreds of loose photographs to avoid having loads of albums taking up space! I've used several times for this, and can thoroughly recommend them.
Sorry can't be more help.

I'll have a look later to see who I used but it was first class. I will say make sure it's as high resolution as possible and you've run it through lightroom or similar to tart it up.

For photo-printing stuff, I've always been impressed with Photobox ( )

- they only use uploaded images, so you'd need to do that conversion first
- I've never done a canvas print, so can't categorically say that theirs will be good. But everything I have had from them has been good.

I recommend DS colour labs or One Vision imaging. Both of them will do canvases amongst a multitude of other things. I can't speak for the quality of the canvas printing but when I was looking for standard print services, I sent the same image file to a whole bunch of people and the difference compared to your photobox etc was easily visible.

Both of them will do scanning of your 35mm negatives to digital files for printing.

Yes, as Tim and Debster have already stated there is a way of doing this. I even bought a scanner that holds slides and 35mm for this purpose and did some of mine years ago. I've never tried an online company for doing this though I'm sure they exist, however, I've found that very often the photos need quite a lot of manual intervention to get he best out of them in the final photo. Thus, you might get better results if you can find someone locally who does it.....I know there's someone in our village who does and I think it's a pretty common thing for enthusiasts to do. They'll probably be cheaper and do a better job.
If you were local I'd offer to have a go myself but wouldn't advise sending them in the post if they have sentimental value to you (as I assume they do).

Bizarre I can't find who did mine. But hope you find one.

Oh and I got a canon scanner which does positive and negative transparencies and prints. It's got all the software 8800f
