This is just plain nonsense. Anyone who has done any work in Photoshop
knows there as much craft there as any darkroom process. Not to mention
getting good scans, getting good color calibration, and tweaking the
digital file to optimally map it into a print.

This notion that digital printing is something that a trained monkey
with half a brain could do well is simply myth.
