Thread: To develop or not to develop

    A true photo is only when you shoot in slides. If you shoot in negative, even you tell the printers not to do any adjustment onto your shots, they just cant help because the machine will be doing the compensation and adjustment automatically. If the printer doesnt manual overide this actions, it is even worse cos the machine doesnt know what your photo is. Diff photo with diff tone and coloration.

    Try take a digital photo and do all the auto level, auto contrast, auto color and see what happens to your pic.

    Also, you PS your photo in your PC is not cheating. Some who develop their photos in the darkroom do some miracle work in the using their enlarger lens as well.

    You refering to a consumer scanner at home? This depends more on the hardware specs and the software settings you use.

    Hey Doug, here are some links:

    http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=145951

    I've only tried the one from the first thread, they use a SP-2000 machine. If you tell them 16 base, the resolution is 3360x2240.

    Also just wondering where the rest of you get your slides/negatives scanned? And whats this thing with drum scanners? Are they supposed to be better?

    hmmm...is it "cheating"? oh who cares....just shoot, scan, edit, "cheat" and have fun doing it
