Question about Canon CanoScan 4200F Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Slides scan as negatives

I just bought a CanoScan 4400F, after installing the software and scanning some negative film (worked great) and some color slides (worked great)...all of a sudden every slide I scan comes up as if I were scanning a "negative." The colors are reversed and I cannot find a way to undo the problem.

    Have you checked that option "invert colors to produce Neg/Pos image from Pos/Neg original" is not enabled?

Can HP psc 1410 PRINTER SCAN NEGATIVE AND SLIDES


Chances are that somewhere in your family photo collections you have a bunch of slides and negatives that you wish you could do more with. You may want to include them in your family history, to publish them on the Web, or simply to make digital copies so you can share them with the family.

If you've ever tried to scan a negative or slide on a regular flatbed scanner, you'll know that it doesn't work, and you end up with a pure black scan. In this article we'll show you how you get your negatives and slides into digital format, and what issues you may face along the way.



pixblue.gif Benefits Of Scanning Film

There are some key benefits to scanning film (we'll use the term to include slides and negatives) in comparison to scanning a photo. When you scan film, you can use the full area of the slide or negative, whereas a photo will generally only display a cropped portion of the original. You are also scanning the original source image rather than the color corrected and tweaked version of it that the photo processor has provided you with. The process of turning a negative image into a positive one involves inverting the colors in the image and removing the orange cast from the negative. This would be a complicated process if you were doing it by hand; however, your scanner will provide you with software to do this automatically, or you can purchase standalone software to do it.

Most cheaper flatbed scanners are designed to scan photos and other images that reflect light when it is shone onto them. The problem is that film is transparent and light passes through it rather than being reflected off it. Many flatbed scanners have an optional transparency adapter, which replaces the scanner lid with a larger box shaped ob....

Scanner is scanning everything in with inverted colours, is this a setting somewhere in the ToolBox It was working but I think one of the settings may have been changed. Thanks


It seems that the Source is improperly set in the ScanGear software interface. From the ScanGear screen (where you Preview and Scan your documents/film), click on the tab labeled 'Advanced Mode' at the top. Under 'Input Settings', in the box next to 'Select Source', choose the type of film you are scanning (usually Color Negative Film if you are scanning 35mm negatives).

Why is my canoscan 44oof scanning in negative mode i.e white paper with black print is scanning black with white print


I solved this problem by the following:

Don't scan from the Canoscan toolbar. Use an imaging program (I used Picasa), import from the Canoscan, and Scangear opens up. In the settings for Scangear, you can choose positive or negative film (use positive for slides). You can keep using Scangear, or after using it once, you'll see it has corrected the problem with the toolbar

Cannon 4400F Scanner


I had the same problem with about 1 out of every 16 slides when I first got the scanner. The only way I found around it was to rearrange the slides and try again. I started scanning through the ScanGear software instead of Canon Toolbox, and haven't had that problem since. I've scanned about 6,000 slides and negatives so far.

I am unhappy with the light level while scanning slides.


I haven't solved the light problem, but I have found a pretty good program that allows me to enhance my scanned slides-pics into nearly slide-projector quality pics: XnView. I have found that it is best to not try to use the enhance program in PhotoStudio 5.5 (the driver-program for the Canonscan 4400F).
