    I wish I had learned about these apps before I tossed most of the negatives I had around. Thankfully, I still have a few.

    Very helpful! Also, if you go to a Family Search Family History Center, some of them have good scanners that will scan negatives. Free and available to all. Not all Family History Centers have these scanners.

    Very good review of the Apps that can process negatives. I had done this with slides for all of our collection, but was not aware that I could do it for the negatives. Many negatives I have already thrown away, but I will try it with those that I have left. Thank you!

    Presented with photos to match her talk so we could see the differences in apps. Very worthwhile. It was organized and well presented.
