if it is 35mm c41 ... send your film to kerry's warwick 1hr photo.
she's here: http://kerryswarwickphoto.com/ ...
she is the last lab in my area, and she is great !
if it is larger, or slide film, get a cheap scanner, scan it and adjust the levels yourself
in a 50$ version of photoshop ... it is pretty easy .. scan with no auto adjustment
then after it is scanned go to levels, bring the left + right sliders to the hump ( or when YOU think it looks good )
and adjust the contrast ( center slider ) till it looks good to you ...
then upload it to kerry, and ask her to look at it, so it looks good to her too ...
there should really be a rudimentary scanning and adjustment form here on apug, seeing 90% of
the labs are all hybrid, collect film files via email &c ... even a 50$ version of editing software
can do HUGE things to save people the annoyance of dealing with a lab that has someone who doesn't care
behind the wheel ... and it will help people upload to the apug gallery, seeing that can be the weak link.
it isn't rocket science, it isn't trickery, it isn't like people are making HDR prints here, or whatever ...
good luck !
