Hi. We will help you rediscover some of your old memories.
Photo Negative Scanner uses your phone camera to do real time conversion of your photo negatives into digital images. Think of it as a magic loupe that you can use to see film negatives through. Instead of seeing the inverted colors of a color negative you will see the original photo.
Push the capture button to capture a crisp digital image ready to be shared with friends and family.
If you still shoot film with an analog camera this is a great tool for proofing and previewing home-developed negatives.
Instructions for getting started
To use the scanner first you will need to setup an appropriate lighting source to backlight you color negatives.
An easy solution is to use a laptop, phone or tablet with a white screen and maximum brightness.
1. Setup a laptop or tablet with brightness set to max
2. Open the browser
3. Type in 'about:blank' in the address bar
4. Set the browser to full screen (F11 on windows)
You are now ready to convert your old film strips.
The photo negative scanner automatically negates/inverts and corrects the colors. Simply place a photo on the negative film strip within the crosshair shown and tap the screen. This will calibrate the viewer and the preview will display the images as if the image was developed.
When you scan a film negative the photo is saved to your phone. You can view all the scanned negatives from your existing gallery app.
If the image has a blue or red tint manually adjust the white balance for the perfect photo.
Share your photos directly to Facebook, Instagram etc.
If you phone has a good camera this app can work as an alternative for a physical flatbed scanner or film negative scanner.
Photo Negative Scanner supports both black/white and color negatives. Just press the black and white button within the scanning interface to toggle between color and black and white.
