[filmscanners] Re: Modern photography...



Regarding photoshop, for someone starting off from scratch, you may want
to consider GIMP. This used to be a unix/linux only program, but it has
been adapted to windows. It is similar to photoshop, but not a clone.
Also, you can run old revs of photoshop. I'm still on release 6, which I
think is 3 revs old. Corel and Photoshop get updated frequently, but
only ever other rev seems to be a real upgrade.

There is an amazing amount of free imaging software written for
specialized photo processing that can be used in more mainstream
photography. One is imagej, which is a java based image processor that
has it's roots in biological image processing. There are several
astronomical image processing programs that have better or more flexible
noise reduction and sharpening algorithms than the stock image processors.

Imagej requires a good java jvm, which can be found at

I still think for a properly exposed image that needs nothing other than
a bit of cropping, wet photographic prints are superior in quality.
