Do you have any post editing software?  Maybe time to buy one.  Photoshop Elements is very good and most agree the best.

Hi Teddy.


The MP Navigator EX software that was bundled with your CanoScan LiDE 700F can be used to scan your black and white negatives.  To use the MP Navigator, please follow these steps:

 1.  Start MP Navigator EX and open the Navigation Mode screen.

 2.  Point to Scan/Import and click Film.

 3.  Place the film on the Platen.

 4.  Click Specify... to set the document size and scanning resolution as required.

 5.  When setting is completed, click OK.

Film may not be scanned correctly when Film Type in the Scan Settings dialog box is set to Auto. In that case, select the type of film in Film Type and scan again.

To scan black and white film, it is recommended that you select Black and White Negative Film or Black and White Positive Film for Film Type in the Scan Settings dialog box.

 6.  Click Scan.  Preview scan starts.  When preview scan of the film is completed, the preview image appears.

If a message for calibration appears, remove the film, then place the Film Adapter Unit over the first frame of the Film Guide and click OK.

 7.  When the calibration is completed, follow the on-screen instructions to load the film into the Film Guide, then click OK.

Preview image does not appear when the Preview before scanning checkbox is not selected in the Scan Settings dialog box. The scanned images appear directly in the Thumbnail window.

 8.  Select the checkbox of the frame and click Scan.  When scanning is completed, the Scan Complete dialog box opens.

 9.  Select Scan or Exit. To scan another frame, place the Film Adapter Unit over the frame you want to scan, then select Scan. Select Exit to end.

The scanned images appear in the Thumbnail window.

10.  Edit the scanned images as required.  Use Edit Tools to rotate images, select a part of an image, etc.

First select images to edit. (Selected images are outlined in orange.) Drag the mouse or use Shift + arrow keys to select multiple images.

11.  Save the scanned images.
