No, I am not sure they are scratches. I figured that since they were drug around on the floor by my cat with the emulsion still very wet, that they were scratched. I am more than willing to rewash them.
To rewash them, I assume that I use just warm water?
Unfortunately, I can't afford Photoshop, this is a shoe string operation. Unemployment will do that, unfortunately. :(
Thank you everybody for your help! I greatly appreciate it.
To rewash, put the film back on the reel and soak for 30 minutes or so first. Then use running water for a while. Hopefully, most particles will come off. If not, you could try GENTLY rubbing with your fingers but you do risk further damaging your film. At this point, I am not sure if there's that much to lose....
I wouldn't use warm water, especially if you intend to rub it with your fingers.
I'd try the gentler method first.
Thank you for all the advice! I will carefully wash them tomorrow and see what happens. When dry, I'll rescan and post to let you all know how it went. Again, thank you!
great advice !
