Scanning Film or Slides
Tip: Make sure your negatives or slides are dust-free for the best scan. You can also select the Dust Removal setting in
Epson Scan to improve your scan.
Perfection 2480 Photo
If you have the Perfection 2480 Photo, its cover has a built-in transparency unit
(TPU). To scan film or slides, you’ll need to remove the reflective document mat from the cover and place the film or slides in a holder on the scanner glass.
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 (see step 4 in
“Connect the Scanner”).
2 If you’re 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 backwards on the side that faces up.
3 Place the film holder in the correct position for your film or slides.
For slides, place the holder on the scanner first, then place the slides in the holder. Match the letter on the film holder tab with the corresponding letter on the scanner.
Note: Make sure the thin, rectangular calibration windows on both ends of the film holder are uncovered to ensure an accurate scan.
4 Close the scanner cover.
5 To scan each film frame or slide as a separate image, press the 4 Scan and Save button or open Epson Smart Panel and select Scan and Save.
This scans each frame or slide using ideal settings in Full Auto Mode and opens each one separately in ArcSoft PhotoImpression for viewing, editing, and printing. See your on-screen Reference Guide and Smart Panel help for instructions on selecting scan modes and complete scanning details.
6 When you’re finished scanning, you can store the film holder in the scanner cover. Slide the film holder into the cover, then replace the document mat.
Perfection 2580 Photo
If you have the Perfection 2580 Photo, the top of the cover has an automatic film loader that lets you load 35 mm negatives without even opening the scanner cover. Y ou can use the slide holder to scan a 35 mm slide from the scanner glass.
Before scanning negatives or a slide, 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 (see step 4 in
“Connect the Scanner”).
Scanning 35 mm Negatives
1 Close the scanner cover.
2 Press and release the back of the auto film loader cover to open it.
3 Flip out the metal film guide and press it down until it clicks into place.
Caution: Before loading a film strip, make sure it contains at least 2 photos, but no more than 6. Don’t load folded or creased film into the auto film loader or it may damage the film or your scanner.
4 Place the film strip in the film loader with the shiny base side facing down. Your images and any wording on the film strip should appear backwards on the side that faces up.
Slowly slide the film into the loader. Let go of the film when the scanner begins to automatically feed it into position.
5 To scan each frame in your film strip as a separate image, press the 4 Scan and Save button or open Epson Smart Panel and select Scan and Save.
This scans each frame using ideal settings in Full Auto Mode and opens each one separately in ArcSoft PhotoImpression for viewing, editing, and printing. See your on-screen Reference Guide and Smart Panel help for instructions on selecting scan modes and complete scanning details.
6 When you finish scanning the film strip, press the Eject button inside the auto film loader to eject the film. Wait for the ] Start light to stay on green, then remove the film strip.
Caution: Don’t turn off the scanner with a film strip loaded in the auto film loader. Never pull film out of the loader by force.
7 Flip the film guide back inside the auto film loader and press it down until it clicks into place.
8 Close the auto film loader cover.
9 Replace the document mat before you resume scanning reflective (paper) documents.
Scanning a Slide
1 Make sure you removed the reflective document mat, as described in the previous column.
2 Place the slide holder on the top of the scanner glass so that the tab labelled “D” fits into the area labelled “D” on the document table.
3 Place a 35 mm slide into the holder with its shiny base side facing down. Your image should appear backwards on the side that faces up.
For a landscape-oriented slide, place the top of the image toward the left. For a portrait-oriented slide, place the top of the image toward the top of the scanner.
4 Close the scanner cover.
5 To scan your slide, press the 4 Scan and Save button or open Epson Smart
Panel and select Scan and Save. This scans your slide using ideal settings in Full Auto Mode and opens it in ArcSoft PhotoImpression for viewing, editing, and printing. See your on-screen Reference Guide and Smart Panel help for instructions on selecting scan modes and complete scanning details.
6 When you’re finished scanning, you can store the slide holder in the scanner cover. Slide the slide holder into the cover, then replace the document mat.

Scanning Film or Slides
Tip: Make sure your negatives or slides are dust-free for the best scan. You can also select the Dust Removal setting in
Epson Scan to improve your scan.
Perfection 2480 Photo
If you have the Perfection 2480 Photo, its cover has a built-in transparency unit
(TPU). To scan film or slides, you’ll need to remove the reflective document mat from the cover and place the film or slides in a holder on the scanner glass.
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 (see step 4 in
“Connect the Scanner”).
2 If you’re 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 backwards on the side that faces up.
3 Place the film holder in the correct position for your film or slides.
For slides, place the holder on the scanner first, then place the slides in the holder. Match the letter on the film holder tab with the corresponding letter on the scanner.
Note: Make sure the thin, rectangular calibration windows on both ends of the film holder are uncovered to ensure an accurate scan.
4 Close the scanner cover.
5 To scan each film frame or slide as a separate image, press the 4 Scan and Save button or open Epson Smart Panel and select Scan and Save.
This scans each frame or slide using ideal settings in Full Auto Mode and opens each one separately in ArcSoft PhotoImpression for viewing, editing, and printing. See your on-screen Reference Guide and Smart Panel help for instructions on selecting scan modes and complete scanning details.
6 When you’re finished scanning, you can store the film holder in the scanner cover. Slide the film holder into the cover, then replace the document mat.
Perfection 2580 Photo
If you have the Perfection 2580 Photo, the top of the cover has an automatic film loader that lets you load 35 mm negatives without even opening the scanner cover. Y ou can use the slide holder to scan a 35 mm slide from the scanner glass.
Before scanning negatives or a slide, 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 (see step 4 in
“Connect the Scanner”).
Scanning 35 mm Negatives

2 Press and release the back of the auto film loader cover to open it.
3 Flip out the metal film guide and press it down until it clicks into place.
Caution: Before loading a film strip, make sure it contains at least 2 photos, but no more than 6. Don’t load folded or creased film into the auto film loader or it may damage the film or your scanner.
4 Place the film strip in the film loader with the shiny base side facing down. Your images and any wording on the film strip should appear backwards on the side that faces up.
Slowly slide the film into the loader. Let go of the film when the scanner begins to automatically feed it into position.
5 To scan each frame in your film strip as a separate image, press the 4 Scan and Save button or open Epson Smart Panel and select Scan and Save.
This scans each frame using ideal settings in Full Auto Mode and opens each one separately in ArcSoft PhotoImpression for viewing, editing, and printing. See your on-screen Reference Guide and Smart Panel help for instructions on selecting scan modes and complete scanning details.
6 When you finish scanning the film strip, press the Eject button inside the auto film loader to eject the film. Wait for the ] Start light to stay on green, then remove the film strip.
Caution: Don’t turn off the scanner with a film strip loaded in the auto film loader. Never pull film out of the loader by force.
7 Flip the film guide back inside the auto film loader and press it down until it clicks into place.
8 Close the auto film loader cover.

For a landscape-oriented slide, place the top of the image toward the left. For a portrait-oriented slide, place the top of the image toward the top of the scanner.
4 Close the scanner cover.
5 To scan your slide, press the 4 Scan and Save button or open Epson Smart
Panel and select Scan and Save. This scans your slide using ideal settings in Full Auto Mode and opens it in ArcSoft PhotoImpression for viewing, editing, and printing. See your on-screen Reference Guide and Smart Panel help for instructions on selecting scan modes and complete scanning details.
