Re: Inverting Tones in a B and W image

Re: How to crop

Marv, But you can only compare the quality if you know what method is used by Layout.

Re: DL-C.COM Maintenance

Jonathan,

The website looks ok now, but I didn't do any further testing.
The link to DoF works fine, I downloaded and installed the latest version yesterday morning.

Re: Clever idea for scanning film

Mark, I have used a pair of rulers put on the borders of the negatives to keep them flat.
I have used steel rulers, but if it isn't too light everything straight will do.
