Importing Negatives - 12/14/2007 3:14:57 PM

I have PrintShop Pro 21 Deluxe. I just purchased a new Copyer, Scanner, Printer an HP 5280 and want to scan Black and White Film negatives into Print Shop. Unfortunately I don't have in the software that came with the unit a program to scan and reverse film negatives. I emailed HP about this and they told me that I have to buy a separate program for this. I have dozens of Black and White and Color negatives in many different formats that I want to scan into my system and create photo albums from the negatives.

To create positives one has to reverse the negatives. In The Print Shop Pro 21 Deluxe photo program, is there a negative reversal component that can reverse neg's to postitives? (I didn't find anything in the Print Shop operators manual about reversing neg's.) If not, is there a Plug In that can be used with the photo program to reverse Black and White or even Color Film neg's to positives? The Advanced Photo Option works very well with about 85 percent of the photos I work on, however, I can't reverse the neg's. At $700.00, I can't afford Photo Shop at all. I don't have any Photo Shop plugins. The 3 in 1 blew most of my budget.

Thank you for any input on this subject. graphdes

P.S. If I don't respond right away, Have a great Christmas and a very Happy New Year. To Brandy and Lindarobin, Thank you very much for your help this last year. Your expertise is very helpful. Thank you to you both.

No, PrintShop cannot work with negatives. My understanding is that only special scanners can scan negatives and these scanners come with an extra piece of equipment just for that purpose. They scan at 4800 dpi and more.

You probably have to search for a PhotoShop plug-in that does what you need. I think PhotoShop plug-ins can be added to the Advanced Photo Editor's library of filters.
