Scanning softwares (Silverfast 8, Epson scan) – Use it or not is entirely up to the workflow.

Whenever I have new developed film to scan, I would quickly fire up the Epson scan software that came bundled with my Epson V700, never giving another thought to it and proceed to scan my film.

Okay, that wasn’t really a hint but a dead give away as I couldn’t come up with something witty.
