Is it possible to change digital images to film-like prints? I am relatively new to photography however I hate the flat images I have gotten. Does anyone have suggestions? Know of processing labs in Maryland or online printers?
Lolly's - I don't mean to sound like a sales rep for Alien Skin's "Exposure" however, I recently downloaded a 30-day free trial, and it allows you to choose from a wide range of film-like prints with the simple click of a button - both color and black and white. I was impressed and bought the software - I think it's about $90, but by all means try the free download first, since you have a month to experiment. You do have to have some type of photo processing software - I use photoshop, but i assume it will work with some others.
This is a complaint I've heard more than once. But I've never experienced any difference in the prints from images I've captured digitally compared to images I've shot on film.
You may want to check out the Sams Club/Wal-Mart's one hour photo department. They use a Fuji Frontier printer which has excellent printing capabilities. If you're good enough to prep your file yourself, make sure to turn off the "Auto Enhance" feature on the kiosk when you load in your image. Or better yet, if there is a Costco near you they use a Noritsu printer. I've been using both these machines for prints I sell professionally for years without any problems.
