Aldanipio2 is close. You go to...

  1. System Preferences
  2. Click Universal Access
  3. Click Black on White (Yours is probably set to White on Black)
You many have gotten into this mode to begin with by pressing
Command-Option-Ctrl+8
Try that key combination and you will see it toggles you between positive and negative image. This can often trigger itself accidentally when the key command is similar to that in another program. I often find whenever anything visibly strange happens to my desktop, Universal Access is the first place to look.
Best of Luck.

SOURCE: desktop negative photo shot

Nobody is using your computer, so you don't have to worry about that. To change your computer back to normal hold down the Control, Option/Alt, Command, and "8" keys. This will change your desktop back to its normal state

How do I correct a negative screen?


Do a factory reset. So what is your tablets brand and model?

Black and white or negative screen resolution in Mac OS X


A black and white display, or negative screen resolution, is an issue which can occur within the various Mac OS X system versions ranging from Mac OS X 10.3 to Mac OS X 10.6.

It can appear as an anomaly which can leave a Mac User dumbfounded, not sure what is going on.

At one time your screen is normal like this, but then somehow,

the screen changes into this strange negative, inverted screen.

749233a.jpg


So how does this occur?

The answer is more simple than you think.

An inverted screen like the one you see in the screen shot above, is not actually an anomaly, or the result of some sudden strange happenstance. What's more, chances are, this occurred because of what you did.

Its an easy fix however, because the only way your Mac OS X desktop screen can turn into a negative or black and white resolution, from its normal color resolution, is if a setting within your Mac OS X system has been modified.

To return your screen back to the normal color resolution, follow these steps:

* Click on the Apple menu icon, located on the upper left corner of your Mac OS X desktop screen.

* From the drop down menu, select System Preferences.

* Within System Preferences, select the pane (in System Preferences, Apple references all icons as "panes") entitled "Universal Access".

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Quick Note About Universal Access:
The reason this System Preferences pane is known as"Universal Access", is due to the purposes Apple designed it for. If you notice the image for this pane above, this symbol for this feature, is similar to a placard or sign you would see on a car license plate, parking space, door or building, for an individual who has a disability or is handicapped.

Universal Access was designed to enhance features like Voice-over speech (your Mac talks to you), screen size, display settings, keyboard and mouse settings for those Mac users who are vision impaired, hearing impaired and /or physically disabled.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* For the next steps in the process:

Click on the Universal Access pane.
If you look in the screen shot, under Display, you will see that the current setting is "White on Black".

Click on the radio button entitled "Black on White"
and this is the window you will see:

Back to normal!

That is all it takes, to return your desktop screen resolution back to normal.

This is why you were suggested as the probable cause" for your desktop screen to go into Inverted mode. Chances are you may have been in System Preferences, clicked on the Universal Access pane, and in exploring settings, may have clicked the Display setting and the
White on Black radio button, causing the screen to go into
the inverted mode or change in gray scale.

Another theory could be that you may have accidentally pressed the Ctrl-Alt-Apple Command keys on your keyboard, combined with either < > keys, depending on if you were in process of' increasing or decreasing contrast on your Mac's screen or display.

The true purpose of the inverted screen mode or change in gray scale, is to aid Mac Users who may be sensitive to the bright normal colors, that you and I see on the standard Mac OS X display screen, due to poor or failing vision.

So now that your screen is back to normal, if you should see an inverted display, or screen that resembles a negative resolution, like that of a photo negative, you know how to correct this issue.

My photo arcsoft scanner does not turn the negs into digital photos, what should i do? have done everything as the instruction booklet which isnt much help.


Rather than ask for clarification, I am going to assume that you scan a color negative and that is what you are seeing Something like this: otsuka.jpg

You will need to open that file in just about any photo editing software. The next is TRANSFORM the image by INVERTING. The will very likely be a menu select - IMAGE > TRANSFORM(MODIFY) > INVERT You will get something that might look fine or look something like this: otsuka_0.jpg

Again in that same image look AUTO EQUALIZE or AUTO ADJUST: IMAGE > ADJUST > AUTO EQUALIZE (FIX) / AUTO ADJUST That may give this result:
otsuka_1.jpg
Kind bluish still So then we'd want to change the color balance IMAGE > ADJUST > COLOR BALANCE > Increase Red / Decrease Cyan Yielding something like this: otsuka_2.jpg

There are a variety of photo-editing softwares, play around with the settings and choices but the fundamental thing you need to do first is to INVERT the negatives.

I have scanned several negative images to my computer easily but naively thought they'd be put in a full jpeg image so they would look like a proper photo image not a negative image. What do I need to do...


Once on the computer in negative format, only image manipulation softawares are capable of restoring to display impressions. For example, photo softwares are capable of restorations with anti colation fillin voids to achieve image regularity. However, transforming the negative to regular image makes jpeg formating very convenient thereafter.

My screen looks like a photo negative..I have a Toshiba Satellite.


Right click on your Desktop, click on Properties, then go to the Settings tab and set the color to 32 bit True Color.

It sounds to me like your display settings are set to monochrome/black and white.

When you are on the print window at the end of the process, look for a "Preferences" or "Options", then look for tabs or other menus that say "Color" or some sort of "output" mode and see if there is a negative option you can disable.
