I believe that most photographs on this website have successfully scanned and uploaded photographs from negatives. This process sounds very complicated. Is it? Surely one doesn't scan the negatives as one would with photographs?

you need a slide/negative scanner or special kit for slides/negatives on your flatbed scanner (which doesn't achieve the quality produced by a slide/negative scanner) to be able to scan negatives and slides. Then you have to go through the steps of photo editing which are basically the same as when prints are scanned.

iow, Joge is boasting of his job at a photostore where he has access to a highres professional scanner (integrated in that Agfa 1-hour processing/printing machine).
Shop I take mine to now also has one of them (plus a smaller older version as well), might ask them what it costs as it should be faster than scanning everything myself
But as I'm using mainly slides anyway...
