Hi Dix, Not really sure what you are getting at here PSP is a photo editing programme, do you have a disc burning programme on your computer ? Do you already have the photographs on your computer. If you explain more maybe we can help

hope to explain

I have a cd and dvd burner. My negatives are old black and whites from the 40 s and 50 s. i read if you had psp 8.10 you could scan them in to your computer under scan as glass and then you could put them on a disd to have them developed or print them yourself. i could not find psp 8.10 so i thought psp9 was an upgrade and had everthing 8.10 has. i'm new at this as you can tell.

Hi again Dix. Firstly PSP is a good programme. I have never scanned a negative so cannot really say what results you will get, as far as I am aware you will simply get the negative image which is not what you want. Available on the market are negative scanners but unsure what prices are or exactly what the results will be. What I suggest is that you scan a negative as you cannot harm it and then in PSP there should be a filter to reverse the image which should give you a positive, if you see what I mean. Try that and let us know what the results are, I am sure that someone on this site will come along and give you better information than I can

What you need is a scanner with a slot for feeding in your negatives (mine does). Once the digital image is saved to disk, you can use PSP to manipulate the image (in PSP9 : Adjust -> Color Balance -> Negative Image, which will reverse the negative (I think) so you can print normal photos!
