hi... my mother found some really old negatives dating back 70-odd years, and i need advice. is it possible to scan them onto a computer, then use some editing suite to get pictures out of them for printing? probably a long shot. Many thanks for reading

I recently got some amazing black and whites of my ma as a young girl,a very beautiful and happy young girl,we should print more photos instead of leaving them on hard drive where they could be lost forever.

you can get a scanner that will scan the negatives for you, i know a while back i got a scanner from hp and it had a seperate part designed to pop in the negatives and it would scan them to your computer so im sure you should be able to do this maybe try the hp website

these negatives are fairly big compared to modern ones, being about 3.5"x2", so i wonder if theyd fit into such a 'seperate part'.

there's about 20 negs, and are in a brown paper sleeve that is covered in adverts for 'velox' paper, 'super sensitive panchromatic roll film' [by kodak, which works well, apparently, with 'sashalite' or 'photoflood' bulbs], christmas cards ['just put aside the negative until september, when you can select one of our greeting card designs and we will do the rest'....3 months!] and finally 'perfect snaps in every light on verichrome, make by kodak'.

i love old stuff like this.

Instead of having to buy a negative scanner yourself - if you think it is a once off - a good photography shop might be able to do it for you.

Negatives are designed to be printed from directly. You could get prints made by a photo lab without needing to get then scanned at all.

You can scan on a high resolution with a regular scanner and invert the image in the likes of photoshop. I've done it quite a few times with different kinds of negatives.

These are negatives from the 1930s that were scanned with a regular scanner and inverted.
