Scanning "film negative" and convert to "positive"?

Post by Peter2 » Wed Dec 21, 2011 7:14 pm

I would like to know if it makes sense and creates a medium quality to

- scan my negative-stripes from my 35 mm camera and
- convert it with command "Negative" to a "coloured photo".

Crazy idea?

Out of frustration with phpBB I created an OpenSearch plugin for web browsers.

There's a learning curve, but you won't regret spending some time with JPG-Illuminator.
