This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom/Camera Raw: Ability to invert negative scans to positives (color and black-and-white)

I'd really like an option to convert the colors from my self taken negative paper b&w pictures to positive. Now I need to use some other apps for it before using Lightroom and the quality drops dramatically. This phase is essential for that kind of photographing and I'd really appreciate the feature.

Revert the tone curve, then you go from negative to positive.

There is already a request about this features.

Reverting the curves also f*cks up the other sliders, as they are inverted and bright means dark :)

As Antoine mentions inverting the Tone Curve makes all of the controls work backwards! Please add your 'Me To' vote and 'Follow' here:
