can't make a picture out of an old negative.
I found this image of my great grandparents( I think that's who it is) in albums from the estate of my uncle. Imbedded in the pages of hundreds of photographs was this one negative.
I don’t have a negative scanner, but I scanned it into my computer with my regular flatbed scanner, hoping I could figure how to work some magic with Gimp and get a regular picture out of the deal.

The best I could come up with was colors>invert. But that produced less than satisfactory results. In fact, in made it look more like a negative.

Obviously, I don't know what I'm doing. Could one of you gimpers help me out here?
