    I do still take some film shots, but haven't ever looked around online for good deals as I only need a film processed every couple of months, if that. So I just pop them into Boots.

    I think it's about 7.95 for a 36-exposure film with 6x4 prints (my choice of size), but with that I also get a CD of the images in JPG format in two different sizes (optional extra, but they're handy for emailing round sometimes), and I can't remember how much of the total the CD takes up. Maybe 1 or 1.50, something like that? It's a bit more if you want them back within a day -- the 2-day service is fine for me as I'm only in town once a week.

    I think Boots may now be the only place I can take them locally since an independent closed down, but in fact since having to take them there the results have been better than the independent produced in-house anyway (we're not talking a need for professional quality in my case).

    I was going to recommend Jessops but they seemed to have stopped the 35mm service since I last used it

    Fuji offer a full service 5.50 for develop and CD-rom or an extra 1 if you want prints. CDs that I have had from them (3 years or so ago) were fine!

    Morrisons supermarket still do it, I picked up a leaflet a few months ago, but I can't remember the prices, although I seem to remember they were quite reasonable.

    You don't have to get prints you might want to think about getting just a CD.
