Re: Strange color negatives among good ones

I really appreciate your information, thanks. I have been placing my film strips upside down according to your instructions. I interpreted the instructions that came with the scanner as saying to place the shinny side down. Well, both sides are shinny, but one more than the other. Doing that the scanned images come out not reversed as shot. Looking at it another way, I have been placing the film in the holder with the curl up, but you seem to be saying to turn the curl down. Am I getting that right? At any rate the film is slightly bowed laterally, so how does the scanner focus correctly anyway? When I get to scanning my old slides, the film will be between layers of cardboard which may place the film at an even different height to negatives. Maybe the scanner compensates when I select positive or negative film???
