    Hey, I have regular film that I want to make into Digital and put them on my computer. Where can I go to do this? I also don't want to spend a lot of money. Any suggestions?

    How much film? You can pay almost any photo lab to scan your film. If you have a lot of film you'll find it cheaper in the long run to buy a film scanner, and do it yourself.

    If you have access to a Costco, go there. They can put it on a cd CHEAP!

    If you're going to continue shooting film shots I'd definitely recommend just buying a scanner. It's a good way to archive your work in case something happens to the film or prints.

    I would say if you are able to afford one now, definitely buy a film/slide combo scanner. Most of the ones that will scan 35mm film will also do the slides. If you cannot afford that, then going to a Costco, or Walmart, would be your best bet. I know even here in Ky that will cost you a lot more than at Walmart.
