I don't know how I missed this post, but dude, you're way off base on your view of the forum participants and the help that's offered. There are countless examples of people asking and receiving help with their photos, many of which later end up in the RP database. If you fail to see that, you're not looking, my friend...

Here're just a few from the past couple of days:

That's all I feel like looking for at the moment, but the point is made...

Also, as far as advice:

But I accidently got an image revealing structures in that white out! I use Silverfast AI, FocalBlade, and PhotoShop Elements 3.0, a stripped down version of PhotoShop, and have been somewhat sucessful in processing negs. 35mm slides are proving to be a challange with noise streaking!
Not to knock the photographer who started this thread, but he didn't even know if his flash went off or not, a pretty basic thing to notice when taking a photo. Do you think your response above is anywhere close to where he currently sits in his knowledge of photography or post-processing? I'm guessing most of it went straight over his head. In other words, you may have offered some advice, but did it really HELP in this situation?
