APUG Ethics of B&W conversion of color image
Ok ok, I won't convert it.
I don't have access nor the knowledge to print optically.
Also this is a chrome, so NO ONE can't print this optically...
I also don't have the skills or knowledge to copy the image.
The only thing I do is shoot and then develop in my sink. I don't have a darkroom nor anywhere I can make a dark room in my home (I'm not allowed as its not my home).
If someone wants a print, I take the scanned file to a printer and they print it for me. I don't know anyone who owns an enlarger nor any photo labs that still print optically, I do my best to use labs that print with true print paper of course.

I love APUG but if I only scanned prints that were made entirely traditional, I wouldn't have any prints to show.
I respect the reason for the "traditional" idea, but I don't think it's fair to be excluded from a community just because I don't have access to something. I'm not harming anyone and I don't discuss non traditional stuff. I was told it was OK to upload scanned negatives so long as they weren't photoshopped. I may do some slight tone adjustment to match the negative when the scanners auto setting picks the wrong mid point, and sometimes i get rid of dust particles. but that's it.
Am I wrong about this too?
