We've been having our film scanned since the mid 1980's for commercial purposes, so scanning film is nothing new. I've been scanning my own film since about '95 and working with it in Photoshop, but got really serious around '98 or '99, buying my own drum scanner, and have been working slowly away at scanning the most important images from almost forty years of making photographs. Scanned film works just fine in Photoshop and is really a joy to work with. While I originally bought my scanner for my personal use, it paid for itself making commercial scans in just four months. These days I fire it up about once a month and scan a few pieces that I find interesting. Like I said, I've been at it for over a decade and just keep going. It often surprising to rediscover old images that still have plenty of merit.
