    Hi ppl,

    Need to get some opinions here. Which developing shop gives the best rates for developing slides into prints?? From what I gathered, it is pretty expensive for the process...

    Go and get your slides scanned, then, you can print the digital files as per digital print prices. Also, the digifiles are forever, no fungus, no fading, no ageing.

    hi!! Thanx for the prompt response. $1 for 4R seems pretty steep still... Is this the going rate for the rest of the shops developers to??

    That's an idea. But would the photo quality of the digi prints be compatible to those from the slides??

    Thanx!!

    Well, the last time I tried getting a print from slide, the result was YUcKs.

    If you have a good scan of the slide, you can do lots of enhancement, in the digital darkroom, and the possibilities are immense. The results could be better than the original, depending on the quality of the scan, the resolution, the enhancement made, etc

    this is the best method. but you must have a film scanner... flatbed scanner dont do the job for me. a cheap and excellent scanner is the minolta scan dimage III. it only scans 35mm film though... both mounted and non mounted.
