    You have to be prepared to" suffer for your art ", and do the work, it's part of what being a real photographer is, not just being a button pusher.

    Why does this make me think of spotting prints made using a condenser enlarger?

    “Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”

    I've been there too Matt and got the T shirt, my point is that excellence in any creative endeavour is "one part inspiration and ninety nine parts perspiration".

    645 slides project nicely using standard 6X6 or 6X7 projectors. The problem is finding the appropriate mounts (and the projector). Labs used to mount them for 6X6 projectors unless you emphatically told them not to. A few may still do it if you emphatically tell the to do it. Hand mounting slides is not difficult. Although there are lots of special tools that can make things a lot quicker and easier, you can do a quite adequate job with scissors and a common iron.
