Next time I'll remember to ask this question when it's 1987 out.

I've had this little home decor project idea floating around in my head for ages and I need a specific kind of picture frame to pull it off. One of those family collage frame type dealies that everybody's grandma has in the den. But they seem to have dropped out of fashion and I haven't been able to find one anywhere over the course of numerous googlings for the past year and a half. [more inside]

Negative scanning services?

I have a bunch of 35mm negatives from the 90s and 00s I'd like to get scanned, and I'm wondering what services people recommend. ScanCafe was recommended in a previous post, which sounds like it would work for me, but I'm wondering if other folks have better / cheaper recommendations. In particular the color correction seems unnecessary to me since I can color correct the few images I'll probably want to post myself in Lightroom.

Design advice needed! Odd picture size inside a standard picture frame.

20 3/4" (w) x 28" (h) poster, can't afford to custom frame it. Which is better: 1) a standard 22x28 frame, with a little extra space (or matting) along the width of the poster; 2) a 24x30 frame with 1 1/2" mat on either side and 1" of mat at top and bottom each? [more inside]

Help a newbie get started with photography.

I'm purchasing my first DSLR and I'd like to take full advantage of it. I have a lot of experience with scientific imaging (I run a microscope lab) but I don't have much experience with aesthetic photography or how best to take advantage of a DSLR. I'd like your advice on books, websites, and other resources to help me get the best photos. All aspects of photography are helpful: operating the camera, composing photos, and post-processing.

Who is this picture of? (Yes, I know, "Of whom is this picture...")

A friend found this picture in the basement of his apartment building, and it's killing us to try to figure out who it is. A roomful (OK, a barful) of people were convinced that it is "someone", but we can't quite place who. If it weren't for the teeth, I'd almost say it's Andy Griffith, but, you know, perfect teeth.

It looks great but could you make it a little bigger?

I bought a print of a painting I love in the only format available: A full bleed art show poster on glossy 11"x17" bond. The painting reproduction is approximately the top half of the poster, say 10"x8". I can clearly see the grain of the canvas in the print, and it is entirely possible that the original painting is not much larger than the reprint. So my question is, is it feasible to have this print blown up to twice or thrice it's size without sacrificing quality? [more inside]

Where does this picture of Nathan Fillion come from?

Hope a fangirl! Where does this picture of Nathan Fillion come from? Both Google Image Search and TinEye only lead to unsourced fansite galleries. This site indicates that it's a studio photoshoot outtake, but it doesn't look like any Castle photoshoot I'm familiar with.

Looking for a simple picture frame to hold 4 3x5 shots.

I'm looking for a specific picture frame to display school pictures of my four kids. The pictures are 3.5" x 5" portrait oriented.
