    I'd vote but I can't be sure what is meant by some of the options - "global adjustments to contrast and levels" "spotting . . . local tweaking . . . wet darkroom" "tweaks ok . . . skilled darkroom artists". I don't know what "levels" are. I don't know what is meant by "tweaking". I don't know what is meant by "local" and "global".

    I vote for scanning prints and negatives with a mininmal amount of PS - to make a scanned print more closely resemble the print and correcting the loss of detail that seems to be evident in scanning either negs or prints.

    Although I'm pretty sure I'm on your ignore list, there's no reason for you to remain ignorant of these terms so here goes.

    Global - the entire image area - eg adjusting contrast of the whole print and not just one location. You are for this.

    Local Tweaking - the opposite of global eg dodging and/or burning on area - you'd be against this

    Spotting - getting rid of spots of dust or dirt - can do this on the print or scan. You might oppose this.

    Levels - in PS the entire white to black spectrum is divided into 3 broad levels white, grey and black. You can adjust them seperately. You'd be against this as well.

    PS you'd be in the 2nd or 3rd category.

    I voted, but the options don't quite reflect my feelings: "Scanned negative, print or tranparency with only global brightness/contrast and spotting"...

    Incidently, what about scanned prints that were printed to dot-matrix via PS?....

    Wait,so I'm not a falling to pieces ruin with a whole in the middle and a bunch of vines tangled all over the top of me....
