Flatbed Scanning from TR Trades
With the largest glass flatbed scanner in Western Canada, we capture detail like never before. Multiple cameras and adjustable light sources pick up depth and brush strokes at the highest resolution, allowing artwork to be faithfully reproduced at the same size or larger.
Flat vs Angle Scanning for Fine Art
Typical flatbed scanning incorporates a single camera and light source that capture your original from a uniform perspective. This is great for documents and flat artwork, but was always limiting for fine artwork.
