  • How do you convert your scanned negatives to positives with ACDSee?

    I want to digitize a large collection of old negatives. After I scan them, how do I convert them to positive images (RAW or TIFF preferred) with ACDSee?
    Thank you for any advice related to this undertaking.

      Glen showed one way using edit mode.

      If you prefer to work in develop mode from Raw images, then take one of your "negative" images and "develop" it first by going to the tone curve box and just "turn it upside down" so the black value is highest and the white value is lowest.
      This will create a negative of the image for you.

      You might also want to "develop" some more things like making a crop to remove the unwanted "outside" part of the image or adjusting the contrast and ,...

      Then you could use those same settings to develop all the other images in one go using copy/paste settings.
      To do that :
      ... In manage mode select the image you have adjusted to your liking, then
      Process/ copy settings / select all / OK
      now select all the other "negative" images that you want to process in the same way, and,...
      Process/paste settings

      They will all be adjusted in the same way
