I was sorting out all these old photos and scanning them in as I went, and yes, there are still lots more to scan in. Whilst doing this I also came across lots of negatives and was wondering what was on them. Holding them up to a light you can kind of make out what is on them and really wanted to know as it might be worth getting a film scanner. Then it dawned on me, what if I use the magnifier on the iPhone, I seem to remember it having an invert option to switch colours from positive to negative so it makes sense that if I choose that option then bingo, I should see my negatives as they were intended.
You guessed it, it works and now I know I do need a film scanner as there are some negatives that I do not have as prints.
Here is a little video I made to show you how to do it. Must get back to sorting those prints.
