  • Negatives

    Is it possible to scan in a film negative and then reverse it to give a real image.
    I am using PS6 can't seem to see anything on there which may do the job but I bet someone out there knows.

      If I understand your question, your scanner software should have that functionality. However, in photoshop, just invert the scanned image. On a PC, just hit Ctrl + I to do this.

          Historical 1906 B&W Negatives
          by Elleth
          Yesterday a woman came into my studio and handed me an old yellow envelope containing 20 B&W negatives of the aftermath of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and subsequent fire. She would like me to scan and print them for her.

          The negatives are an odd size, approx 6x3.5 or so and...

          Scan photos or negatives?
          by Shoff
          I know the best would be to scan the negatives but, I don't have a film scanner. What I do have is my Epson 4870. So the question really is.... Using my 4870 would it be better to scan the photos of the negatives?

          Scanning 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 Pos and Negatives
          by dbliss
          I have a project to scan 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 both positive and Negitatives. My scanner can do 35 mm slides fine. The 35 mm has an addapter for the slide. The 2 1/4' do not and just laying them on the scanning surface does not yield good results. Does anybody have any ideas on this?

          Scanning 1930's 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" negatives
          by Welles
          My niece has become the family historian. She found a set of negatives from my parents taken in the 1930's which she wishes to scan for preservation and print. Is there a modestly priced scanner (under $300) which would come with transparency adapters and do a good enough job on such a project? I was...
