    Well, I finally uploaded a few pictures from scanned negatives.

    Cesaraugusta, I don't look down on wet development. I admire it, and I think that most do the same.

    If I recall, there was once room for differing opinions on the forum. It would sadden me to learn that I am no longer allowed to post my own opinion, and that I must agree not to disagree to avoid being harassed.
    i agree there are plenty of so called photography forums that are run like a police state, apug has avoided such temptations so far

    A bathroom is equipped with all the necessary fittings, including being spill-resistant and easily cleaned.

    Many moons ago, i spilled some developer on a bedroom carpet. It had to be taken out and replaced.
    i live in stupid england and they seem to like putting carpets in bathrooms , so a spill is going to be bad anywhere in my crummy apartment

    I say scan the print. Period.
    I shoot transparencies 100% of the time (b+w dr5 reverse processed). These are my 'finished' work, not a print. Does that mean that I shouldn't scan these for posting to the gallery?

    Cheers,
    Gavin

    Sounds very much like some would like to ban the gallery from APUG. Too Hybridphoto, i guess...

    Perhaps they should also use a quill and ink to share their thoughts about this thread's topic?

    i spent the better part of 4 hours yesterday and today
    scanning two 11x14 prints .. well it is on 11x14 photo paper
    and a border. unfortunately for me, my scanner's glass is not that big
    so i had to scan in pieces .. first the sides, then top and bottom to
    see which i could puzzle together better. 4 hours i spent doing this
    ( and i have been using PS since the 1990s ) and unfortunately i wasn't
    able to hide where things met. it just "looks funny" ...
    so i searched my film for 2 hours this morning, found the negatives
    and now i have spent the last hour ( or more ) scanning these 2 .. now
    four frames. i hate scanning prints ...

    A suggestion . . . photograph the print. This can be accomplished digitally as well as with a film camera. The practice involves lighting the print from the sides at an appropriate angle as to minimize glare.

    Yes...

    And then you print the photo of the print, scan it, and post the result in APUG's gallery.

    Oh! Wait a minute...!

    i have done copy work for 20 years
    and i don't really see the point of
    photographing the print
    when it is easier and faster
    and less of a hassle to
    scan the film.
    the point isn't to make 2 or 3 times as much work for oneself
    just to say that it was a print, the point is to make a replica
    of the image. maybe in a perfect world making copy images ( film or whatever ) works
    but i don't live in a perfect world, with lots of time on my hands.

    The point of my suggestion was to get a digital image of the print with a camera. What do you get by scanning the print on a scanner? . . . a digital image of the print. Another suggestion is to purchase a scanner of the appropriate size. But I'm sure that suggestion can be shot down for some lame excuse also. Here you go, farm out the work to someone who can.

    PS: Apparently somebody has enough time to copy prints on a scanner that is too small. Merging segments of scanned images from scanners is easy with some experience. The experience will come with time.
