    which scanner? there is more than one version of that model.
    I am toying with the idea about getting one. I took a SX-70 print into my dealer and they get $20 per scan, putting it on a disc costing $5, This does not include a print. Altho, playing with the SX-70 is just that; playing, it would only take 20 to run up a tidy bill of 400.
    As I am going to do a project later in the summer using this process, it gives me pause to think I will spend that much for a disc full of "playful images".

    played with the burning and dodging tools to see what he could do before he went into the darkroom to print.
    Funny, 'cause that possibility has always intrigued me -- using digital as a sketch pad, so to speak. Does anyone have any ideas for the simplest program to use for these purposes? The scanner comes with PS Elements, but I once read about a program that was developed by a photographer and that's much more intuitive, if less feature rich. Can't remember the name of it, though.

    You are being robbed! $20 for a scan?? Go to Kinkos or Copy King and do it yourself for much less.

    My offer still stand poco
    Brace yourself, 'cause I'm likely to take you up on it once I'm ready with real questions. Right now I'm busy in the REAL darkroom, trying to get a few prints into final form for a birthday gift for a friend. It's just I noticed that questions posted to moribund threads (here and elswhere) tend not to get much response, so I'm trying to strike while the iron is still hot. I have no doubt that PS will do everything I need -- and a whole lot more, which may be the daunting problem. I won't know until I really have time to play with it.

    you are correct about being robbed. I told my usual sales person that was crazy. She agreed, but you know how that is.
    B & H shows two versions of that scanner, a pro version and ????????. It would appear by the specs that the pro version has additional software packaged in. I am going to have one of my students (a computer wiz) check out the specs. I was also thinking of the 1680. However, as this is just a casual project I want to keep the cost down to just a finger, not an arm or leg. Am just an old fashion darkroom "rat".

    Well I am certainly the last person to offer give advice on the scanner issue as I am totally ignorant, but when ever I need a scan I just go to an internet cafe and get it done, cost? $1.5 and hour plus the disk. Of course I can only scan prints, and they usually look horrible, but heck, what can you expect for a buck fifity..?
