Is there any function in Picasa that allows 35mm negatives to be scanned and then produce prints from them?

Day after day as I try to remember, I find my forgetter working better and better.

Welllll … not exactly 🙂

Sometimes your scanner will handle negative -> positive.  Check out the documentation for your scanner.

If you've scanned a negative, Picasa can't invert it directly, but Picnik can – just click the Picnik button on Picasa's Basic Edits:

Go to Create => Effects => Color =>  and select Invert .
available for free version too

In researching this I found a pretty detailed article on 'scanning' negatives: http://photo.tutsplus.com/tuto…..al-camera/
