Trouble Scanning

Thu Mar 20, 2003 2:00 am

I had some emails about some pictures for other websites, but anywho, I was scanning some pictures at my girlfriends house. (My scanner broke) And I have two pictures that came out black and white. They were different kinds of film, and they were from two different rolls of film. One was actually 4 years older than the other. Odd thing is they are both taken in HKG (one in kai tak and one in CLK) My question is why did it scan b&w and how can I fix it? It was only for two pictures, and I ended up scanning about 15.

Anyone know? Get color into a picture? Can photoshop do it?

Do you have a negative or flatbed? Most likely its a problem with your scanner settings. Maybe you had it on "positive" and they're negatives? (would be obvious as hell though  Smile/happy/getting dizzy) Could always try reading the manual if all else fails...

good luck,

Nah they weren't negatives. They were normal pics with normal film. It scanned every other picture just fine, it looks kind of cool, i got a nice kai tak shot, so it looks real old!
