    Masking off ANR Glass for Better Scanning Setup

    So, I am sure this has been done before, but I used low tack tape and sealed edges with the Better Scanning Kami tape. Is on the ANR side. Also acts like a light mask sorta if I don't feel like using the black mask I created. Just thought I would show. Epson V850.

    Man that's awesome! I used to watch the retouchers and spotters (when spotting prints was a real job) and they used to pull regular tape, then stick it on their shirt, and then tape something. I think it makes it less sticky. They were pros so I'm sure they knew what shirts to wear so it didn't have lint or threads or something on it.

    Works really good. I am going to use some black gaffer's tape over the blue painters tape to keep out all of the light. The blue tape lets some thru, so the gaffer tape should make it true mask around the film.
