    I had that happen a couple of times. Just re-scanned it. Should take care of that. Watch for Morie pattern too. I would concur with everyone. Just blow off Negs.

    Hi Djs - A discussion on how to dodge/burn/brightness/contrast/etc. using an enlarger is in scope for this forum; however, discussions re how to do such using a scanner and/or post processing software is out of scope of Apug. Though Apug's sister site DPUG.org, is a great place to post such questions re getting recovery of over exposure, etc. I mean this with most sincerity and hope this comes across as being guiding

    Absolutely, Andy! I've had only the most helpful responses on APUG. And I understand it's dedicated to analog. I got a bit carried away!

    You can't use Digital ICE on B&W silver films; it only works with dye images. Dye images are transparent to the IR light used, while dust (and silver images aren't).

    Thanks for tips with that! I'll make sure it's left off always.

    Turns out I've not been careful enough handling some negs, I can see a fingerprint!!

    The most important reason for steering digital/hybrid questions to DPUG is for archival purposes. A month from now, somebody who wants answers to their scanning questions is likely to search the forums for information. Keeping the "D" questions in the "D" forum and the "A" questions in the "A" forum makes the search process easier.

    Nothing wrong with a one-sentence answer but, beyond that, keep the ducks in a row.

    DJ, if you see spots on your negs you can also consider photographic emulsion cleaner spray paired with lint-free pads (pec pad).

    I also have an Epson V500 and usually I will just wipe the scanner bed with an eyeglass cloth and blow the negatives off (careful not to spit on your negatives haha).

    PecPads are like dust magnets. I use them before printing negs in the darkroom, before scanning negs, and I even use them to clean my sensor. Take two, keep them in a separate bag and use them over and over. Nothing grabs dust better than PecPads!
