Doing our bit, however we can.

Being aware of how we removed of our chemical lab waste and film container waste was high on the plan when opening Take It Easy Lab. We are proud to use Betts Metals, a company that specialises in recovering and recycling the silver in our waste that comes from the Fixer in our minilab process. This recycling of this fixer and the silver recovery process helps us to cover the majority of this chemical removal service.

Since starting in sept 2020 we've already collected over 20,000 empty film cartridges with the idea of doing something with them for the lab. This amount eventually got too many and we didn’t want to see them go to waste, which is why we called in the good people at Scrap Leeds. Scrap intercept waste from industry to encourage reuse and play. Their hub in Leeds is a huge emporium of recycled materials for art and play. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Develop your film

How we process your films

At our Leeds based lab we offer film developing, scanning and printing of Colour and Black & White film types. We develop, scan and print from both 35mm and 120 film.

We run on top of the range machinery, with two Noritsu Hs1800 scanners, and a Fuji SP3000.

We print our 6x4's out on the DNP DS40.

Once your films are developed and scanned, we transfer your files via Dropbox and send over your link!

What our customers had to say...

I’m so glad I discovered Take It Easy! I received my scans super quickly, and I’m so happy with the photos. I love how Take It Easy keep you updated through the whole process, from when you book your order, to when they receive your films, to when they post your negatives, so you can relax and know your film is in safe hands.

Wonderful wonderful service, there is nowhere I’d rather go than Take it Easy. They literally make it so easy for you and they are brilliant. I have had to message a couple times for a request and they have been quick to respond and been accommodating for me. So grateful to them.

Beautiful scans at such an affordable price. Will be recommending to anyone who needs such services. Really happy to have this lab so local.

First time user of this lab , they provided a fast turnaround of developing and scanning negatives, very responsive to messages, excellent value and service. I would highly recommend these guys, first class.

Absolutely cracking service, efficient and professional, never seen my negatives looking as crisp and sharp. Would highly recommend, will be using this lab from now on for all my scanning and developing.

Very quick turnaround and very helpful staff too, developing film can be a bit expensive so I'd rather give it to trustworthy people, highly recommend.
