Use this menu selection to convert scanned negatives to color images. The resulting image will have positive color channels. This process is better than Image | Invert Colors because it compensates for the orange tint of the negative, while also boosting contrast.

 

Note: This process should produce a usable image from most scanned color negatives; however, film scanners will almost always produce better results because they have more data to work with and can tell where blank areas of the negative are (for removing the color mask).
