lets try this:

put paper on the 'film strip' and scan it? makes it more white which makes it more easy to change the colour on Photoshop :)

Have you set it up in the settings to scan negs? What scanner have you got? Are you sure you can actually scan negs with it?

ok there is nothing i can apart than explaining how to do set up

go to your scanner preference, maybe you need advanced setting or something. find a 'negative colour' click it. and scan the film stripe, hopefully itll display as what you want it to be :)

here is my tried out but failed:

That's weird. Most scanners have an 'Auto everything' scan mode and a more adavnced mode where you can alter the settings.

Have you tried the 'Auto' mode?

auto won't work, scanners like camera, you need to be manual sometimes :)

My scanner automatically detects the medium I'm scanning.

Try taking a screen shot of your scan window. Just press 'Print Screen' on your keyboard which copies the screen to memory. You can then open it in any reasonable processing package and post a copy here.

weird, it DOES say it should work. ktlh3410, check your setting if its on auto or negative then itll work :)

may sound stupid but did you take the white cover off the lid? I forgot to do this when I first got mine

I'm guessing it could be that you're scanning negative colour film but the scanner thinks it's slide film and and is applying the wrong colour correction (or visa-versa)

What camera did you use, the image goes all the way to the film edges, which isn't common, not unknown, just not seen it often.

Perhaps the auto sensing is looking to the normally opaque film edges to detect the film type - as suggested manually set the film type - neg colour etc and try again.

I used a holga 120 adapted to take 35mm :)
also i have cracked it now, i reinstalled the package which odly gave me more options, and i was able to change exposure on manual setting .




thnks for the help :)
