programs, and the library are free of charge, while workshops and classes are

Population(s) Served

The
Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is the only rental digital lab in the region
that is open to the general public.  PPAC provides high-end software and
equipment that allows a photographer total control of their artwork.  Free assistance is provided on
occasion. PPAC also offers
fee-for-service printing and scanning for artists who wish to outsource these
activities or where equipment is too sophisticated or fragile to be made
available on a rental basis.  PPAC works closely with artists to achieve
their intent.
