Scanning Cross-Processed Film


I found it very tricky to scan a cross-processed film properly. After getting different results from various scanners, I learned how to do it! Here’s how I did it with my scanner.

But when the scanner messes up the results, it gets annoying. On this video, I will show you my method on how I scanned my cross-processed film. I used an Epson scanner and a roll of exposed Fuji Sensia, cross-processed of course, and my laptop.

Here are the results:

These are kind of raw, so they can be edited in Photoshop, but not that much.
