Can anything be done with negatives? I have some negatives of my family in the 50s that never became prints. I found them after my father died in 1993 and they are still in the box I call ďdadís boxĒ. I think thereís one of me standing by a stone at Stonehenge.

Try scanning them shiny side down at 1200dpi and with white card on the top to keep it in place, then they can be inverted into a positive image. If you can't turn them into a positive, post the scanned neg on the Photo board and we can do it for you. Make sure that you dust the negs off with a soft brush first to remove dust particles. Scan in colour even if they are black and white images.

I've just uploaded a couple, which are waiting for moderator approval.

Sadly the ones of my aunt's wedding are too big a filesize.
