    Scanning Tips for Film or Print

     

    There are a couple of important things to consider when scanning: the quality of your print or film scanner, and the quality of the image being scanned. The higher the quality of both your scanner and original image, the better the image you have to work with in your image manipulation program.

    A high quality original yields the best results, whether it’s print or film. Here are some things to look for:

    • Good color saturation

    • Edge to edge sharpness

    • Smooth color graduation (no banding)

    • Smooth contrast definition from highlights to shadows, where highlights keep some detail and aren’t blown out, and shadows contain detail and don’t suddenly fall to black.
