    Thumbs up Good ol' images

    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" 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...
