    what is your quick way (Need tips!) to scan 4x5 with the full edge markings?

    Hi guys, besides laying it down on the glass and getting lovely rings, what's your go to way of doing a quick scan of a 4x5 while retaining all the edge markings?
    Looking for some good tips

    I scan my 5x7 negatives just as you say. Right on the glass. I put another piece of glass (ANTI NEWTON RING GLASS) over the top. In a bind, I have used just a sheet of plain glass, but that would produce imperfections if you are planning to print big. Works just fine if you’d just like to digitize your shots to post.
