Tips and warnings

  • If you want to scan something larger than the TMA accepts, place the transparency on the glass scanner bed, and then cover with a white piece of paper to prevent the accidental scanning of additional light. Follow the usual scanning instructions.
  • Negatives are delicate and can be damaged easily. Handle them with care when scanning.
