Chukie,

The easiest (though not very precise) way is to turn your original image into B&W and then reverse it to negative.
But there is this nifty little program called "CrazyBump" which does an amazing job:

You can download and use the so called "beta release" from the Announcements forum.

Chukie, that's a forum is for. People ask questions or share ideas and the others answer. This is how we all learn from each other.

I'm still just experimenting but had some successful results.

It's just like everything - you need to do it to be able to know it (btw - this is still our "slogen" by Aristotle above the forums: "For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them."
