Hi,

I understand this an older thread and the OP's questions have been responded as to the correction required. My problem is exactly the same. The negatives have a strong light green/aqua color. When I found the printed photos, they look perfectly normal. Can anyone explain if this is due to the negatives degrading over time?

Many thanks

It could be to do with film degradation, but it could also be something in the scanning process. To give people the best chance of helping, you should say a bit more about about the film - age, type, scanner, scanning software, scanning settings etc.

You may be able to make changes to scan settings to improve things.

Even better, post a scan if possible, and even better still, post a flatbed scan/photo of the corresponding print.
