  2. Article Submission Sites for Website Promotion

    You mean a random search with the right words triggers an ad on the side of the Google page and one must pay $20 each time someone clicks it. What about folks who just dink around clipping those ads...
  3. Material for Masking: Contact Printing with UV

    Check with lithographer's supply house. There is a yellow, gridded paper which is ued for what you seek. The name escapes me, but I use it all the time to mask negs. Much thinner than rubylith.

    Modern black and white films

    Ektapan, Verichrome Pan, Plus-X in sheet film. No finer films were ever made. Agfapan 100 - gone, also. You do owe yourself trying a more conventional emulsion like Ilford FP4+, Efke 100 or...

    Mocrotek 2500 problem

    Also, toss the .ini file. It acts like a preference file and deleting it makes the application "reset." On the Mac, anyway, this is a common solution to many application or even Finder and System...

    Mocrotek 2500 problem

    Glad you are getting closer. Also, I don't know why, but my experience is that it is better NOT to include any space outside the actual image when scanning.

  9. Current recommendations for mail-order color labs

    Dale Labs has done C-41 only for me w/ 120 and 35mm as well as anyone. It used to be just $2 to develop a roll of C-41, but I am sure it has gone up. They don't skimp on the chems. I have also...

    Brian's comments should be noted, but these older scanners go for so little compared to new of comparable quality (if anything being made today is so; maybe, Microtek) you can afford a dud and go on...

  13. Recommendations for color neg film for scanning

    The Kodak Portra films have scanned well for me in 120 and 4x5. In 35mm, I've done well with Fuji Superia 400, the consumer film.
