Well, you COULD but it would take WAY more work than its worth and gets very technical. You cant just scan a negative in a regular scanner and get a great image. Thats why they make transparency scanners. So if you want to do it right without spending days adjusting funky colors, get a transparency scanner.

Pavelants, if you do have access to a slide scanner, or want to spend a few dollars on having a scan made, it is relatively easy to do.

What format is your negative, 35mm? That's easiest/cheapest. I used to get great results with a Nikon scanner (coolscan? I forget product name--it cost about $2K) and just hitting image > invert.

A couple of tweaks from there and you're done.
