**************************** - a great site about film-developing recipes.

Digital Work flow discussed

Negs are the best archiving material! Mike takes all his stuff,boxes it once a quarter, and stores it. Mike always digitally stores at least three copies of his work. Keep an off-site copy for ultimate safety.

Tagging is very important. You can add meta-data to digital files in Photoshop and similar software. Make it a habit and it's not a drag.
