Anyone have any thoughts as to an appropriate Lightroom curve to apply to digital images of colour negs (of several different types, unfortunately)? The main problem, obviously, is the orange mask.

Two suggestions:

 

Before importing to LrC, open the image in Photoshop, create a Curves adjustment layer, and use the Color negative preset to invert the image. It does a pretty good job, but some tweaking may be required.

 

Or, use the Negative Lab Pro plugin for LrC, which may also require some tweaking after the invertion.

They have a free trial that lets you convert up to 12 negatives.
