    What's the best way to convert digital photos to 35mm film?

    I know some people are going the other way in converting 35mm film to
    digital, but there are times when it's cheaper to get a roll of film
    developed into a set of prints.

    Rafe B. Guest does it for around $5 (first slide) and $2 for each
    additional slide from the same image. I've used these slides
    for jurying into art shows.

    You can ftp your files to them via the web site, and expect the
    finished slides by mail 48 hours later.

    You could try a copy stand set-up off a printed image originated by
    digital file, which would be the lowest cost method. However, if you
    only needed a few, or wanted much better quality, you would need the
    file to go through a film recorder. Some of these are capable of 8000
    dpi output to film, and can be quite good.
    Find a professional lab near you, and ask them about output to film.
    This is also something that some printing service bureaux can do; ask a
    printing company if you are having trouble finding a place. Any location
    that can do film recording will provide you with the file specifications
    to get the best output. There are several devices that do this, and the
    specifications do vary a bit.
