I'm new to film photography and I've just finished my second 36-exp colour roll. I haven't the money or equipment right now to develop/scan the film myself so I'm going to rely on highstreet labs (though I've seen good reviews for PhotoExpress online).

I'm planning on taking them to my local Snappy Snaps tomorrow (there aren't any other local labs). I've seen reviews posted circa 2007, which isn't really helpful given technological advances in that time. Does anyone know the resolution of their scans? I'm guessing the actual development process is fine and more or less the same as other labs, it's only the scanning I'm worried about. I also presume I can ask to have the JPEGs completely unedited (i.e. not even have them with a negative filter on them to make them positive scans)?

Thanks :)

I've had a couple of rolls developed and scanned by Snappy Snaps in the past couple of years with no issues, aside from the fact that they don't have standard pricing across their shops - they seem to make them up.
The scans themselves were OK but I tweaked them in PS to my own tastes.
