    "Artweaver looks like a full-featured product and the website had a lot of information attractively presented. I didn't see how to convert old black and white and color negatives to positive images but I could download the software and give it a trial to find out if it's possible. I searched their online knowledgebase and I could contact them to find out if the software can import photos as well. I'm going to give it a 4.5 pending the answer."
