Can You Still Print Photos From Negatives?

By Shelby Burr

Do you still fawn over your printed family photos? We don’t blame you! Especially the old family photos from the 70s, or the family reunion shot from 1988. Man, those were the days! Photos are a few of the things in this world to bring us back to our past. It can help us recall a memory, recognize a familiar and missed face, and it brings joy to reflect on what once was. 

All that to say, we now live in an era that is all digital. It’s not very common to find someone who is taking photos through negatives. Negatives are a classic format for photography and are still used by artists and enthusiasts around the world; it’s just not in most common households to take photos. That said, can you still print photos from negatives?

The answer is yes. You can still print photos from negatives. This is great news! And, as a reminder, we are in the digital era now so there is a way to have your negatives on your phone, computer, send as a thumb drive to family, download to your cloud files and more! Although negatives aren’t as popular, the process of getting your memories digitized is.

Let’s walk through what getting your negatives printed / digitized looks like.

There are film / negative converters that can print out an image for you instantly! A film converter is small, mobile, and easy to use. However, you have to be super careful with your memories!
