I have seen a post about scanning negatives and that the vuepoint will only scan a positive as that and a negative as a neg., the post indicated that you can reverse the image in photo software. I am using photoshop elements 6.0 and I can not find anywhere where you can reverse the image from a negative to a positive. The vupoint scanner that I am using is a 21c wm-fc-vp. Can anyone help with how to make the negative scan work??:confused:

I normally use PS CS5 .. but I also have PSE 9 installed.
To my surprise .. I could find invert in PSE 9 either.
Try this ... Go to Levels .. and reverse The 0 <> 255 levels.

And Welcome to the TSG forum

Photoshop is too slow loading and complicated to use for general Viewing and editing ...
So, I have Irfanview installed as my system default Viewer and Basic editor.
It has a "negative" command .. and if this looks better, I'd probably let Irfanview batch process all the negatives.

Do you have another Image Viewer/Editor installed ??

I think I found it in PSE 9 ...
Filter > Adjustments > Invert ... or try pressing Ctrl+I.
I'm hoping it's still the same in PSE 6

I thought you'd like that .. And it'd work .. Adobe doesn't usually change the shortcut keys.
Until PSE 9, there wasn't much reason to upgrade .. but the new PSE 9 has the new tools found in PS CS5.
Specifically, the Content aware .. Seen here Starting about 2 min into the movie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7-RfWiVIEw

PSE will invert a negative that was copied directly, but I always got heavy orange cast on the final result that was hard to correct. Had this issue when using a camera to photograph a color negative.
