How do I scan my LomoKino film using a flatbed scanner?

Once your LomoKino film has been developed, you can scan it yourself using a backlit scanner. Here are the steps on how to scan your LomoKino film using a flatbed scanner:

  1. Cut your LomoKino film roll into lengths which fit into a scanning mask such as the DigitaLIZA 35mm.
  2. Scan each of the lengths – Don’t color correct your LomoKino scans or at least keep the same scan settings throughout the film – This way you are more likely to get consistent results.
  3. When you have scanned each of the lengths, crop your scans into individual frames using an image editing program.
  4. Save each of your LomoKino frames as separate files – Remember to keep the same order and orientation when you scan the negatives – The best way to do this is save each movie frame as a 3-digit number such as 001, 002, 003, all the way to the end of the film.
  5. With individual files for each of your frames, it’s easy to edit your scans into a movie using video editing software such as Windows Live Movie Maker or Imovie.
