scanning large square negatives with epson v500
Feb 6, 2011

I have some old 2" square B&W negatives to scan. When I put them in the V500 scanner and scan them the software keeps splitting the negative into "pieces" rather than just scanning the whole negative. It figures the negative should be 2.08 x 1.39" in size, no matter what size I set.

The film strip has two images, but what the scanner does is scans it as 3 2"x1.4" negatives, so I end up with three negatives. The top of the first negative, 1/2 of the first and 1/2 of the second and finally both half of the second negative.

Does anyone know how to get around this?

I am using Mac X 10.6 and the Espson scan software in professional mode.
