Jellied petrol? “I love the smell of jellied petrol in the morning” doesn’t have the same feel to it somehow.

aladyforty, if you want to lure your friend into digital photography, I'd suggest emphasizing the digital darkroom: a good photo editor. As Slipe and others have noted, she is unlikely to be impressed by the quality of photos straight out of a consumer digicam.

She could go two routes to get her digits into digital photography: buy a consumer digicam and accept the lower quality or have several rolls of film from her SLR put onto a high resolution CD. (The cheap scans are not much better, if any better, than a consumer digicam.) Even simple edits like cropping and rotation are valuable. Digital equivalents of dodging and burning can improve many photos. Selective sharpening and blurring are usefull tools.

Unless she likes working with chemicals, I am sure she will like being able to do her own "darkroom" work at a desk.
