    What's causing this?

    Hi APUG,
    'Glad to have this forum to post a question.
    The attached scan was developed about a week ago. I scanned it then and it was fine...I went back to it this morning and this is what I got.

    It's Portra done with the Tetenol Press Kit.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hi Julian,

    Welcome to APUG.

    If the negative itself changed then it may be incomplete fixing. That's A swag anyway.

    If the negative looks fine then it's probably a scanner issue and DPUG is one place you might ask that question.

    Hi Julian,

    It's the scanner. BTDT. You're probably fouling a sensor somehow. AFAIK film wouldn't show straight lines if it were a chemical problem unless you dragged it through a pair of contaminated squeegee tongs or other nasty contraption. Scanning is OT here, the good folk at http://www.dpug.org/forums/home.php will be more knowledgeable about these things. :-)

    Cheers,
    kevs.

    Portra is a negative film. Somehow you are getting a positive.

    Scanners are inherently evil as you've discovered ;-)
