I haven't had any B&W prints done in a long time.  How big is the negative, how big the print, and so on might be helpful.  It is also possible to have the negative scanned to make a digital version that can be processed like any other digital image.  Or, if the requirements aren't too critical, you can use your digital camera and cobble up a negative holder and a suitable light source.

scan the negative ... open it in Photoshop or Elements (or any photo editing software that allows for inverting) for Adobe products use the shortcut key cmd+I (for Mac) ctrl+I (windows) to invert

Ctrl+I also works (to Invert) with the editor FastStone Image Viewer - which is free software if you haven't got one that does the job.

Well nothing seems to be working. I am sure it must be 'operator error Smiley' but I am still at a loss here. Not sure where to turn next. ??

Advising where to turn next and what to do requires knowing where you are at present. What actions have you completed and what have you got and in what format?

Many labs do B and W prints from negatives.

Why not just find a USA firm?

Alternatively find a camera club who use B and W prints - they are sure to help.

It is still possible to buy enlargers, paper and chemicals to do it at home if the volume you require is large enough to warrant the cost.

Nothing around here. Had a darkroom at one point but that was years ago. Feel like I am just too old to set one up again. Smiley  Everyone here sends stuff out,::3 weeks for one print. Everything has to be done 'online' around here now. Donot even have anywhere where everything can be bought that would be needed. Still working on this. Smiley THANKS! Smiley
