Can Elements do this??
He has a very large number of photo negatives that he would like to convert to digital and then produce prints. He has a scanner so that part of the process seems to be straight forward - but certainly time consuming.
I'm still learning Photoshop 7 and know nothing about Elements 3
However, there are a couple of general questions about converting them to positive images prior to printing.
1. ? Can Elements 3 handle the conversion from negatives to positives?
I would assume that the negatives have faded over the years (although hopefully protected from light most of that time) and I also assume that Element 3 can handle that type of adjustment.
2. ? Since there is a large number to convert - is there a way to "automate" that process in E3?
I Have not seen a sample of the images so I can't provide one yet for you to see, but I'd appreciate just the general info about possibilities at this point
Many thanks in advance for any ideas you could provide me
Hope that helps.
That's great information that you provided.
I'll refer your site and book to him.
Since I posted the questions, I've seen a couple of the scanned B & W photos - 2 positive and 1 negative. The negative was easily converted as you suggested and the other 2 came out pretty good without much enhancement.
Apparently there really are hundreds that he would like to salvage, I imagine that he will do the scanning himself since the cost would be prohibitive the other way
