    what are you asking?
    you have negatives which you have scanned...
    i assume you used a film scanner... thus the result of the scan are photos which have the correct color on them.

    or did you scan your negatives on a flat bed scanner without film software and now you want to convert the negative color to the color its supposed to be?

    if its the latter, you would have to try
    image > adjustments > invert
    but this might not work.

    you will need to get a proper scan of the negatives... your source scan is bad i suspect.

    Negative films contain a orange base. If you can, try to set the scanner to scan the film as a negative and it will give you the proper colours. If not, try reducing the orange cast before you invert.

    Trying to scan medium format on a normal flatbed? Get a Epson 2450/3200/4870 and save the trouble.

    Or you can try Vuescan.

    You're going to have a hell of a time with focus accuracy and colour correction. If you're really keen you should get a slide duping unit. Still, it's much easier to get a real scan.

    In theory you should sample the film rebate, restore that to white and then do you invert.
