comment Do developed negatives lose quality over time?
Kodak, Fujifilm and Ilford provide a .pdf file on their websites for each film family. It's specified on some .pdfs the ideal storage conditions for developed film of that kind. It varies from one film to another but as already pointed out it is always a cold, dark, dry place. Store your negatives in an opaque box with silica gel in a fridge and it should last generations with not much deterioration.

revised Why does text in a photograph become blurry when I downscale the image?
Improved formatting. Also, there is no universally good resizing algorithm, it depends on each case.

comment Why don't professional cameras have a preview for shutter speed in live view?
You mean like a blurred image on slow shutter speeds? My old cellphone used to do that, and I guess my syster's Cybershot does it. I think it's because nowadays expensive cameras can boost up the ISO to make the image steady even at low shutter speeds. There might be an option to disable that in some cameras. If you can provide your camera model or brand maybe someone can help you with that.

comment Emulating Film Black and White in Digital: From Pictures to Print
I was talking about black and white film since the question was about it, sorry for the ambiguity and thanks Matt and lmre for pointing it out.
