    Step 1:
    Put Film on Scanner

    I use the large mask to hold the film down and let it hand off either side of the scanner. Make sure you do not scratch the emulsion. I tried sheets of glass but they case a) refraction and b) Newton rings. The above method keeps the film reasonable flat and close to the glass

    Step 3:
    Marquee resized to fit into the image itself.

    'CCR' and 'Auto' are ticked/selected as 'on', Film Type has been chosen (in this case Fuji Pro 160 even though actual negative is Konica Centuria PRO400)

    I kept the Silverfast setting for the Fuji Pro160s rather than using the setting for the Konica Centuria PRO400 as the latter gives a colder brown hue, rather than the rich copper tone the setting for the Fuji Pro160s seems to generate.



    Step 4:
    Choose desired final size

    FIRST untick / deselect 'CCR" and 'Auto'
    THEN resize the marquee to the required dimensions and scan

    Step 5:
    Making a mistake

    If you by accident tick/select the 'CCR" and 'Auto' buttons after you have widened the marquee to include the margin/border, then the image exposure will adjust giving you different (and undesireable?) results, commonly a negative
