Not only that, but Henley Scan offer many more services. They can scan old negatives and restore the original colours. Plus scan slides and make simple edits to original images. This can make them look clear and anything in the background which may be unwanted can be removed.

What Eva Says
You have a very specialised business. What made you get into it?
We have been scanning and digitising family memories for friends and family for over a decade and my husband Graham said ’there has to be a business in this’. And there is!
Are you able to convert video, images or media of any age?
Yes – we convert most formats in house. If we cannot do it, we know who can do it, which so far has only happened a handful of times.
Do you find that your services and video books are becoming popular gifts to give?
Since COVID the video book with mobile phone video messages from all over the world, collated and edited by us, have been very popular. For birthdays, anniversaries and even funerals. One can add older footage, converted from a cine film or video tape, or a photo montage. We also design bespoke front covers which is great fun. A unique, bespoke gift to treasure.
As you are ‘reuniting’ people with their memories, does this make what you do very rewarding?
A big yes. We have people crying happy tears and remembering parts of their stories they had forgotten. Just have. Look at our Google reviews. So personal. We love it and yes very rewarding.
