I scanned ca. 6000 old color negatives with an Epson V500 photo scanner. And some slides. One of the things you can do is a reasonable color/contrast/etc. correction even prior to the scan.

In addition, you can use something like GIMP II (freeware equal to Photoshop) and really fix them up in any manner. What makes this a better route (if the images have any importance to you) is that you can operate on parts of the image, remove dust, scratches, and etc., as you so choose.

Where I work, for a while, I used to have an occasional call for employees to submit really old pictures of themselves which I would restore. The restored images were published in the company quarterly with a "Guess Who?" theme. Restoration can be a lot of fun. (More so, if you're paid for your time).
