Print scanned: I don't know how to prevent vertical scanning lines nor the obvious coloured dots which appear on scan. Scan is lighter than print. (Any scanning advice welcome!!).

Masterly done.
What scanner do you use?
I observed lines while printing a scanned photograph. But that is a printing problem..
(but you need to get rid of the black sides.)

Thanks for your comments. I use a scanner/photocopier/printer at work. Not sure of make will check.
I just place print on glass and press scan. It gets emailed to me and I send it home where I open in Photoshop and crop off the white from the photographic paper and then load to Ipernity. No other alterations/enhancements are made. But, the scanned outputs look a bit brighter than the print and I guess its the scanner trying to compensate for exposure, as it sees it.

OK, does it make any diffrence if you place the picture on an other place on the scanner. Looks if the scanner is to blame. Did you try a filmscanner instead?
See you.
