    blansky... me-thinks you're replying from personal experience. You know we luv ya'... tho' we (most of us) don't wanna love ya'... right? I have a neighbor (nice kid) who can't get... "certain feelings"... out of his mind even though he's married with kids. After months of his strong hinting I finally knocked him back hard on his butt and haven't seen him since then. I've felt bad about it ever since but at least he's stopped asking... about stuff.

    Reversing is okay... IMHO... for images. And okay... for those so inclined.

    While flipping the negative may orient your subject so that he is running to the right, you are reversing the side you are scanning, and moving away from the emulsion side. I would far prefer to scan the correct side of the negative, and then flip the image in Photoshop, thereby improving scan quality.
    And, as an aside, any daguerrotype photographer would tell you to learn to eliminate printed letters and numbers from your compostion, although some palindromes wouldn't be noticed. In my area the Philadelphia Phillies sell a tshirt aimed at younger fans with the script, "lil".
    To noones suprise, when photographed as a daguerrotype, or scanned and flipped, it still read, "lil"

    I'm with Blansky on this one, but wondered why you even ask the question, as it is most definately YES. Having said that, I rarely do this, but sometimes it does work.

    probably because it changes reality.

    photographs are intended to be literal recording of reality, aren't they?
