Step 1:Put Film on ScannerI 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 2:Film Scanned in Preview Mode
and here a reduced screen shot to clarify matters:
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)
Step 4:Choose desired final sizeFIRST untick / deselect 'CCR" and 'Auto'THEN resize the marquee to the required dimensions and scan
Step 5:Making a mistakeIf 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
