getting negatives into the computer

Can anyone tell me a simple way to scan negativies into a computer, I do have a scanner but I do not think it can scan negatives. I want to scan old box brownie 110 negatives

You need a slide and negative scanner. An ordinary flatbed scanner won't do this because it has no light to shine through the transparencies.

Here's a typical example: click here

However, some flatbead scanners can be adapted to scan negs and transparencies by changing the lid. It might be worth checking with the manufacturers of yours. Of course, you will also need software to change your negatives to positives.

Sorry for the duplicate advice, Fruit Bat /\0/\. I was typing while you were posting!

I must learn to type faster!

My Epson Perfection 3490 Photo scans negatives and slides, as well as all the normal scanning options.

My Canon Canoscan 3200 will also do negatives and slides not sure it is available now but there must be a later Canon which will do the same. It works well with old negatives.

HP 8180 does both slides and negatives.

If you have enough slides or negatives to copy then have a look at this. I use one and find it excellent for the job.
