p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · scan or photograph?

some pics from the past with negs packed well away, to the point it would,could take weeks to locate so I had the prints scanned at a "pro" lab? results extremely pixilated so a friend introduced me to a third party who photographed the pics, saying it was a more accurate process than scanning

100% views still show serious pixilation and on top of that his exif along with his copyright comes up??

The attached was a 20x20 inch crop taken from a print made from Velvia 64 some 20 years ago. Not only shows pixelation if I try to "blow it up" to match the original it lacks the impact of the original.

so guys, what do I ask for if I want files to match the originals

If this is the reproduction and a crop I would be satisfied with the result. I have been copying 35 year old slides with my Nikon D 80 and am not getting this good of results. The Ektachromes have faded and shifted in color. Your picture looks far better than mine.
