    I stumbled across a collection of black and white negatives. It has been
    years since I set up and used a darkroom. These ARE NOT art quality shots,
    but I would very much like to make an 8 x 10 print of several of the shots
    for a reunion. Is there a way to make a digital POSITIVE copy of negs
    without going through the usual darkroom process?

  2. Sure; scan (with either a film scanner [preferable] or a flatbed scanner
    with a film attachment [not so good], then invert the image. Every
    decent image-editing program on earth has such a function: one click and
    you have a positive.

  3. You missed that Mr. (or Ms.) Moth asked about digital images.
