Dye Transfer is still THE superior way to print a picture, and it's
experiencing a revival. And it gives you some of the kind of control that
photo manipulation via scanner and Photoshop would give that no other print
process can match, and image quality is superior to any but the most
expensive drum scanners.

It just costs way too much, and takes way too much effort.
