After Conversion the "Positive" is still a negative

Hi there! I just installed the trial and have a couple of conversions remaining. I am scanning with my mirrorless camera and importing the RAW as a DNG in Lightroom Classic (release 12.4). I’m keeping everything as default in Negative Lab Pro (v2.4.2) and it creates a tiff that has the -positive in the filename. Unfortunately, this is still a negative. Also, when I have this -positive file selected everything is still greyed out in the Edit tab in the plugin.

On Windows 11.

You need to hit the “Convert Negatives” button. It sounds like you may be hitting the “apply” button instead on an image that you haven’t converted yet.

I know this is a bit confusing… in v3, the “apply” button will be greyed out until you convert.


Hi Nate! I am pressing Convert Negatives. A new file gets created that is listed as the -positive.tiff but that file is still a negative.
