Does anyone have any ideas on the best way to get a 8MP image into a format for exposing this image to a polaroid film???

Any comments would help..

There may be other ways to do this, but here's what I do: ->bring the digital image into your favorite image editing software (such as photoshop) ->after painting, manipulating etc. I put the image into a folder of other similiar images. When I have 24 or 36 of these images together, then I send them to my film recorder (Polaroid propalette). ->take the roll of film into the a local E6 lab and pick up the slides the next day. ->use a daylab 35+ or daylab II and expose the 35mm slide onto polaroid film

There are many service bureaus that convert digital images into slides, and the cost usually varies depending on the resolution. I would expect to pay between $4-$12 per image. Here are some links to places that can do this, although I have no direct knowledge of any of them:

Here are some companies that might offer this service:

Also, the Daylab Copy System can transfer your image to 669 and other film, (not SX70). It's very easy to do and it has expanded my work a great deal. Go to the Daylab site for info. Cathy
