    Default negative > computer> positive?

    Is there any way I can scan some old negatives and process them through the computer so as they can be printed as positives?

    I just Googled [black white reversal jpeg] and found this: https://pinetools.com/invert-image-colors

    The menu on the left side of the page has a lot of other manipulations.

    Cheers,

    You will need a scanner with backlight capability. There are some flatbed scanners about that will do multiple strips or you can buy cheap dedicated slide and negative scanners too, I think Aldi sometimes has them.

    You can buy a negative scanner for a few dollars from anywhere that sells cameras. We have one that was a gift a few years ago and was around $20.

    You can as already said scan with some of the better scanners or photograph the photos on your phone then move them over to the computer and use Photoshop or other photo manipulation program, either on the computer or online.

    Hope this is of some help.

    Cheers - Neil
