Scenes with artificial light (blue, red, etc)

hi there,
I have a lot of photos done with color artificial light like red/blue/green (neon light/color flash. NLP try always to make the results “natural” looking - what is not my aim. is there any way to keep the colours?

When posting about Image Conversion Issues, please include the following information:

  1. Which version of Negative Lab Pro are you using?

  2. If using DSLR scanning, please include: 1) camera make/model, 2) lens make/model, 3) light source make/model

  3. If using film scanner, please include: 1) scanner make/model, 2) software used for scanning, 3) settings used for scanning

  4. Please add the conversion you are having difficulty with, along with a short description of what you are seeing wrong with it.

  5. It’s not required, but it’s very helpful if you can provide a link to the original RAW or TIFF negative before conversion. If you don’t want to share this file publicly, you can also email it to me at

Hi K,
you may want to set white balance to ‘NONE’.
I have had issues with images throwing NLP off in the past and what I would do in those cases is add another shot, preferably same roll, with very natural light(daytime outdoor scene, correctly exposed) and then doing a batch conversion of the two images together.
I am not sure whether it was also neccessary to sync the scene.



thanks a lot! this ist very good method! works perfectly!!
