Film Scanning 101: Everything You Need to Know to
Get the Best Digital Files from Your Negatives and Slides
If you shoot film now or if you have in the past, you’re probably interested in film scanning. This class is for people who want to begin scanning film and for people who already have a scanner and want to know more about getting the quality scans. Mark will cover scanners and scanning software and provide all sorts of tips including how to integrate Lightroom Classic with your scanning workflow (though you do not need to be a Lightroom user to benefit from this class). In the process he will compare and contrast Epson Scan, VueScan and SilverFast software apps. Then he will discuss “scanning” with a camera, which is becoming popular with photographers who don’t have a scanner.
