  • I know York used to do. But, I really don't advise using a company that requires you to mail the film to them and then mail it back to you. I've had friends who have used these mail-in companies & their film got lost in the mail system. For me, pictures are way too valuable to trust to the US mail. It may be cheaper. But, high risk. I know my local Walgreens does film developing. It's one of the few who still does this type of processing. And, really, it's not badly priced. And, you can sign up for their newsletters online & be notified of their weekly photo specials. They will process your film & create a CD for you so you can print digital copies.

  • Oh, you're NOT the only one who still uses film. I have a fancy Canon Elan EOS II 35mm that I still LOVE to use. And, I have an Advantix Panoramic, too. And, I have a fantastic digital. But, sometimes I just prefer to use my 35mm over my digital. I dread the day when nobody processes actual film anymore. :-/
