Scanning Film and Slides

Removal setting in EPSON Scan to improve your scan.
1. Lift the scanner cover all the way up and slide the reflective document mat up and off of the scanner cover.
Note: Make sure the transparency unit cable is connected to the back of the scanner.
2. If youre scanning film, slide it into the film holder with the shiny base side facing down. Your images and any wording on the film strip should appear backward on the side that faces up.Epson Perfection 2480 Photo
