Hi everyone

I'm looking for some help with a scan I recently picked up. I'm using the Hp Scanjet g4010 to scan in 35mm negatives at 4800dpi and getting some strange grain patterns. I'm not sure if its to do with the film being out of date, the way it's been processed or the scanner itself.

Banding coloured grain seems to appear in whites of the photo in some shots its really noticeable others not so much.

Any tips of on how to reduce or fix this would be great, as noise reduction doesn't seem to affect it.

Hi

A small amount of Gaussian Blur followed by a small amount of Unsharp Mask ( with the threshold set above the grain size) can sometimes help. Trial and error will be needed.
