And color! It's so easy on the computer. After a bit of experimenting with Cibachrome in the '70s I gave up home color processing for B&W from then out.
Patti, I would think the scanning process should be simple and you'll have more and easier control over the results. Please share some of the images with us!
My comment was supposed to be a bit sarcastic which I know does not really come across to good on these type of forums. I also have way more years in darkrooms than I do with digital. Started in 1958 shooting 4x5 sheet film, mixing all our chemicals from scratch etc etc. We did black and white and color slides and prints. Finally went to digital with PS5.
One can be so much more creative in digital, there is just no comparison.
