    OK, as well as ocassionally developing my own photos, i would like to get them done professionally. Does anyone know of any places online that let you send in films to be developed at a cheaper price than the shops offer? I like in Scotland, UK. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    It's based in Sheffield, rather than Scotland but Peak Imaging ( http://www.peak-imaging.com ) have a good reputation...

    Don't know about negs or B+W, but E6 (slide) process and mount is £4.95 for 36exp, compared to just under £6 at my nearest high-street place - plus you don't have to drive or get the bus to drop them off and pick them up...

    Cool. Peak imaging sounds great! So how much for 2 x 36 exp. films? It says £4.95 per film, but that seems way too cheap. Thanks

    You might also want to look at www.dlab7.com - based in Guernsey.

    Haven't used them myself, but they seem pretty cheap... £3.95 to process + mount slides, £2.95 for C41 dev only (£6.95 with a set of 6x4 prints), plus there's a discount for 5 or more films...

    I am so good at punches. I love to punch. I just love the punch.

    It is something i was looking into because my local Klick photo point charges £10 for the biggest size (fairly big) or £7 (fairly small). But compared to the online places, it isnt actually that expensive (for B&W).

    C41 is the name of the process for developing negative film, E6 is the name of the process for developing slide film.
