Hi rory,

I’m trying to get good scans of bw at the moment for a photo library any tips? I need to get really high quality and have an epson v700, I’ve been advised to switch off all sharpening and I’m trying to see the film grain but I’m not getting there.

Hi John,
Thanks for your comment. Have to admit I know nothing about scanning really. I just use a cheap flatbed for scanning negs or prints for the web. Never print from them.
