Since Stealth doesn't like me enough to answer me, I'll put them up here.  Of course, he could just be writing a novel in answer to my questions, in which case, thanks Stealth.

I'm starting to do some amateur photography, and I came up with a few that I need help with...

I don't have any labs near me to develop film, so I need to get it done at a local store.  What size would be best to have them developed in for showcasing in something like an internet portfolio type of thing, if I scan them on?

Is there any good way to file your negatives so that I can easily correspond one filed online to the negative it belongs to?  If that makes any sense...

Im sure I'll have some more in the future, but thats it for now.

Personal recomendation. What I do is get just a picture cd made of what I take. Then I look at them on my computer and pick the ones that turn out good and I want. Those are the ones I take back to get printed. You get charged by the print, so if you get pictures that dont turn out, its a waste of money because they usually still print them.

Good point, I forgot they had those.  Well, if I saved a picture off of the CD, doctored it in Photoshop (which I still don't have, but will be needing) and saved it to a card, would I still get good quality pictures if I used one of those Kodak kiosk things to print my pictures?

No, most people dont realize it, but the quality and size of the images on those photo cds is complete crap. I have a really good scanner, so I scan my negatives, and use my really good printer to print it. I get better quality prints than you do at the store. But if you have to take them to the store, get the cd, preview, take the negatives to the person behind the counter, and tell them what ones you want printed. If you have a really good printer, and scanner that can scan negatives, that is really the best way of doing it. Plus, its way cheaper.

Well, I have a really nice Cannon inkjet, so thats okay for now.  I am lacking a scanner, so what do I have to look for to see if I can scan negatives?

On doing a google and checking out HP's website, it seems that even their cheapest model of scanner can do negatives. Go to best buy and take a look around, somewhere in the description it should say "scans negatives and slides" or something similar. Also, pick up some photo paper. Makes a huge difference.

Allright, thanks for all your help.

Digital photography for the win. No more trips to the store just to get some pictures developed. Also, you can send the pictures via internet to a store and they will print them out the size you want.

Eh... I dunno, im partial to the wet process film, its more romantic? Probably not the right word, but if hes serious about this, he can get a scanner that will be specificaly for his developed negatives, with that software he can develope, push and pull all of his prints, can do whatever he wants really.

I think either ilford or cannon makes it.

I don't have the money for a photography-worthy digital.  I fell into a 20 year old completely manual action Pentax, so that's what started me with this.  So, I guess now all I need is Photoshop and a negative/slide scanner.  I'm not too anxious to go blow a couple hundred on photoshop, so Im going to try and look for an older version.

Ah a manual pentax...

I completely fell in love with one of those. I used to take it with me on bike rides and into DC all the time. I loved it.
