I was looking through some pictures I took with my old camera just wanted to share.

Hey, what's with taking liberties with an "up-skirt" shot like that, Frank? LOL ;)

You know, you could run these through Photoshop, once you digitize them. If you have the negatives, even better ... scan them with a 'negative scanner' and you might be able to remove some of that acid-yellowing that many papers tend to go through over time.

Food for thought.

What do you mean digitize them. I just scaned them. Is there another step you need to do. I have thousands of negatives I don't think I could find them.
thanks

Yes, digital scanning of a negative at a high resolution offers a terrific way to recycle your older work. You can then use your "digital darkroom" to color correct and edit the images anyway you see fit.

I figure a couple thousand negatives may take a year or so ... but, there's no rush. Take your time. It will allow you to categorize and catalogue all your previous and precious effort. Something good arises from the chaos. Quite reminiscent of Bobby Goldsboro's "Watchin' Scottie Grow" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YycWoe2MhU&feature=related) written by Mac Davis, as your page through your past?

There he sits with a pen and a yellow pad
What a handsome lad
That's my boy
BRLFQ spells mom and dad
But that ain't too bad
That's my boy
You can have your TV and your nightclubs
And you can have your drive-in picture show
I'll stay here with my little man near
We'll listen to the radio
Biding my time and watching Scotty grow
Making a castle out of building blocks
And a cardboard box
That's my boy
Mickey Mouse says it's thirteen o'clock
Well that's quite a shock!
That's my boy
In four short years, I've gone from rags to riches
And what I did before that I don't know
So let it rain on my windowpane
I got my own rainbow
And we're sitting here shining, watching Scotty grow
Riding on daddy's shoulders off to bed
Old sleepy head
That's my boy
Got to have a drink of water and a story read
A teddy bear named Fred
That's my boy
What's that you say momma, come on and keep you feet warm
Well save me a place
I'll be there in a minute or so I'll think I'll stay right here and
Say a little prayer before I go
Me and God
Watching Scotty grow
Me and God
Watching Scotty grow...
