    I was scanning my recent manipulations last nite and stumbled upon this technique.. Original:

    Converted to a Negative:

    Here's another one I did:

    I like the blue, but I also like the way the manipulation lines are coming up black.. I thought it was a cool effect. Just wanted to share :)

    Hmmm, interesting! I think I've played around like that in PS before, just never printed anything out. :lol:

    Have you tried putting a negative into the Daylab? That is also fun and can give you some of this otherworldly effect. :thumbup: You might like what you get! :)

    Cool. Also try doing this on a duplicated background layer, and then set the blend mode to color. You'll get the colors of the negative, with the feel and texture of the original.

    Hehe, sorry Terri, I don't mean to butt in with too much PS stuff here, but hey, she brought it up :p Combining traditional print making with PS is a great idea I think.

    Aw, you're totally okay, and you know I was teasing I hope. :hug::

    Actually one of the best ironies in my life is that one of my fave alternative process heroines, Theresa Airey, is this MAJOR photoshop guru. :lol: She does amazing digital art and talks with great knowledge about everything from color profiling to digital negatives. I could learn a lot about PS from her, if I only had the interest for it. ;) I just like staining my fingertips with chemicals and lithographic inks, it seems. :mrgreen:
