Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): Is it possible to invert an image in LR?
I do that all the time in PS6, could not find a spot for it in LR.
I make digital negs for alt processing.

Make the Tone Curve go the other way.

Laura Shoe shows you how to make a preset here: Update: Inverting Your Images

Tip: If you are inverting color negatives, I've found it a little easier to color balance when I shoot them using a blue filter, such as an 80a or 80b.

We had one click methods before - eg via a preset. The old problem remains of then needing to drag any adjustments in negative directions too.
