benutzungsfragenWhich side of the film should face upwards?
The manufacturers give advice on this so the scans are correctly aligned.
However, we generally recommend that you put the emulsion side down and rotate / mirror the image in SilverFast if necessary. The reason is to prevent dust from settling on the emulsion side, which is very difficult to clean.
You can easily identify the emulsion side. It is generally more dull and can show structure. The non-emulsion side is generally more shiny and flat.
