  3. Re: Negative or Chrome 4x5, Which is best for scanning?

    A well exposed negative can scan well enough (have only scanned 6x9 neg.) but a well exposed 4x5 chrome beats them altogether. I think that a scanner (especially cheaper flatbed) has to increase the...

    You just need to add some sharpening in photoshop. Flatbed scanners show very blurry without any sharpening. Here's a slight redo on your crop. The extra grain won't be noticable on enlargening to at...

    I had 48 quickloads to ship so I had to put them in a flat rate box for around $8.90 shipping. Probably could have gotten another 20-30 in there if I had to.
