I have a boxload of 35 mm negatives begging to be scanned, enhanced and printed

Apr 8, 2013 1:45 PM

Is it possible to scan a 35 mm black-and-white negative (yes, I know it can be done) then use Printshop Elements 11 to virtually develop, enhance, and print to photo paper?  I've a boxload of negatives that are begging to be scanned, catalogued and managed. But what good does it do me if I cannot print them?  Any advice or point toward a source would be greatly appreciated.

    Glumdelklitch,

     

    I purchased a stand-alone 35mm film to digital converter for this task. I have Wolverine F2D. With this you scan to a camera card, then upload to your computer. It works well. If you check at Amazon, there are available several units from which to select.

     

    An alternative is to have a commercial lab do the scanning. Here is one such company:

    Good luck.

    You can if your scanner has a TMA adapter to scan negatives.

    I'm doing that now on my HP scanner.

    For your scanner you don't need to look for software. If it can scan slides all you will need is the part that can hold you b&w negatives. Scanning process should be the same as for slides.
