Silver Pilot – software converts scanned negatives into photos


Silver Pilot is a software program that converts digitized negatives into proper photo images (aka positives). It has a fairly primitive interface, but from the look of the examples included seems to do the job as expected. Just select the negative image, give it a reference point, click on the start button and the job is done automatically. No doubt true artists will want to tweak and fiddle with the post-processing tools or fire up their fave image editor afterwards. It’s distributed as shareware and the license is priced at $29.95.

 Silver Pilot is designed for conversion negatives into positives. You will get high-quality positives within two steps: 1) Select a clear area in the margin of the film or clear film base 2) Press the Start button…This technology allows you to get high-quality positives even if you are a novice in photography…With Silver Pilot, you will be able to do further color correction of your photos with the same simplicity.

  • Uhmm.. Ever tried MS Paint (Picture -> Invert Colors) ?
    why should I use a special program for this?

  • Converting digitized negatives into positives / images doesn’t work proper with a simple “inverting colors”!
