    Please give me some suggestions in converting from using a darkroom to
    using computers to print photographs.

    For the past several years I have had access to a darkroom at a state
    college enjoying B & W and color film developing and printing, However
    recently that facility has became unavailable to me, so I must find
    another way to produce my images.

    The local parks department and community college have B & W darkrooms
    but they are not set up for medium format film. Because of that and
    other reasons, I anticipate using a scanner, appropriate software and a
    good printer to produce quality images. I will probably develop my B
    & W film and have the color film developed commercially. I do not plan
    to replace my film cameras with a digital camera or build a darkroom.

    Any suggestions for putting together a quality system using a scanner,
    software and printer would be appreciated.

    Please give me some suggestions in converting from using a darkroom to
    Well, a 4000dpi film and slide scanner is about $600...For that the scanner
    can examine the slide from different angles and correct for dust particles.
    I would expect digital corrections to the finished scan to be very basic
    rather than very involved so that the software included with the scanner
    will probably be enough.
