I've got several rolls of 35mm film that were shot 20+/- years ago...Kodak print film. The rolls have been in a dry environment during this time, but I'm sure there's some image degradation. These are shots from Alaska, New Zealand, and Australia. Could someone suggest a decent company to develop and scan to digital for me? Any pointers on getting this done? Any thoughts on the quality of the images? There is probably close to thirty rolls so I might have to do it in $tages.

Thanks for your feedback!!! :-)

Temperature is probably at least as important as the humidity; both can affect the dyes (I'm assuming colour film), and high temp. over time may cause "fogging". Wherever you go to have them processed, definitely only send a test roll or so for processing; if the dyes are really bad, consider having them just process a further test roll as straight B&W, developing the silver and not bleaching it out; then see which you find least objectionable.

Thanks Jon. I'll definitely send in a couple of rolls first and see how it goes....thanks for the suggestion.

Black and white???.... that is an interesting idea and might be a good fix if the first test images don't work out so well. I'm not familiar with the process, though, I never had any hands-on experience with color processing, just b/w. The processor that I'm considering is "The Darkroom"...hopefully they will understand it.

Thanks again for the info!
