i don't think that the processed negatives would be damaged by the light of a scanner. but i am really no expert i took photography in highschool
and that was getting to be quite a while ago. you are talking about the processed negatives and not the undeveloped film i believe.
maybe someone else could verify this but i do not think the light from a photocopier or scanner is powerful enough to affect negatives.
althought i am NOT positive.
it does not hurt pictures or peoples faces when they are scanned.
i am gonna scan some negatives and see what happens
my scanner did not even show the images on the negative slide. it is kind of crapy though. i gotta inexpensive photoshop and it has some really
cool and fun effects including psychedelic, custom, and bunch of other stuff you can do to pics that you scan or other digital images.
man this one pick of me highschool that we developed the old school reverse negative way turned out with me lookin' sort of evil. it looked like i
had fangs. man i wonder what in the hell ever happened to that pic.
