Re: Photographing old negatives / workflow

Thanks for responding.

I created a custom picture control with the Picture Control Utility, and reversed the tone curve. That switched the image from negative to positive.

You have to start with the “Neutral” built-in PC in order to access the tone curve customizations.

The one thing I can’t seem to get yet is how to change the colors to eliminate the orange cast (shows up as cyan in positives). The utility doesn’t provide individual tone adjustments for each color channel - at least I cannot find them. But there must be some way to do this because Nikon had to do it to create all the wacky profiles they include.

But at least that gives me a positive image so it’s easier to identify people in preview.
