    how to scan the boarders in?

    Hi

    How can I scan the boarders in? The film holders are usually smaller than the full frame+boards?

    Make a custom holder. If you have a flatbed, you can use an 8x10" piece of glass to mount the film below it, using tape as feet in the four corners. You can wet-mount, if needed, or use electrical tape to tension the edges of the film. Or, depending on your scanner, you can mount the film directly to the scanner platen.

    Since you are already into the digital paradigm, scan a negative on a flatbed scanner, crop out the center image, keeping the border and in subsequent post-processing use it for a border. You can use that border forever. If you change films you can even fake the notches with an overlaid layer.

    Kinda depressing advising how to make digital emulate physical analog.
