    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    For really sharp 35mm photos go with slide film. Or shoot a larger size film (like medium format 120 / 220 film)

    Scanning film or prints has always softened the image and lowered the contrast in my experience. I always try to tweak my scans (using curves and USM) so that they look like the actual print. If I'm scanning from the neg, and I haven't made a print yet, I'll tweak it to look like what I hope I can get the print to look like (it's usually better than my scans).
