you should consider developing yourself. it is less complicated than it is made out to be. a bit time consuming, sure, but very rewarding and it's not expensive.
Do you have any pointers? Is there anything more "portable" these days, that doesn't require a whole dark room?
Development does not require a darkroom, that's only needed for printing. I personally use a mixed workflow, developing my own B&W and then scanning (I use a lab for my colour development, but I have access to multiple good pro labs here in Toronto). I do all my own scanning. I do not have a darkroom, all development is done in my kitchen (in a 1 bedroom apartment).
For B&W, it's easy. You need either a dark room or a changing bag to load the tank, then the rest you can do in your kitchen/bathroom. That requires a daylight tank, a set of reels, a thermometer, a couple measuring jugs and chemicals (dev, stop, fix and photoflo). There's tons of guides online, or you can get a book. I got started with the Ansel Adams guides.
Colour requires some more care, it's a more complex process requiring stricter temperature control, but eminently doable, at least one regular here, makten, does his own colour.
