Thanks for the idea

I had already mentioned that to her, thinking that would be a great solution. But, that doesn't work for her photography club because they are all digital - They take pictures and do all their stuff on the computer. I'm sure this is in part to save cost because they don't have any film developing costs unless they decide to actually print out prints.
