Can I Scan A Negative And Make It Lokk Like A Photo?

Hi Everyone;

I have some negatives from film. These negatives haven't been developed into photos. I'm just wondering if there is any way to scan these negatives into my computer using my scanner and use software to make them look like photographs?

Sure. Photoshop can do that with the "invert" function.

Here's 6 pix.

3 black and white. The original, the invert, and the invert of the invert--which looks just like the original

3 color. The original, the invert, and the invert of the invert--which looks just like the original.

I'd guess there are other applications that can do the same thing if you don't have Photoshop.

For all I know, you might be able to invert them right in the scanner, without using other software.

GIMP can invert images, and it's free. In GIMP, just go Colors - Invert.

GIMP - Downloads

I'm a Photoshop user, and while I realise that PS has trials and is now on a subscription basis, if you want to keep on using it - whatever way you look at it - it costs you about a grand. GIMP has a lot of the PS functionality, and is my fav price - free.

GIMP is a terrible name for a good product. It's a term that has rather bad meanings in the UK - disabled or physically impaired person, a stupid person, also slave in the S & M world. Unfortunate choice of English . . .

edit - desat + invert in GIMP
