13548Re: Does the emulsion side of film matter?
- Aug 28, 2013Gerald, how can any element of the image indicate emulsion side? Service bureau can do output correctly for letterpress, right-reading emulsion-up, or more often from a industry standpoint, correctly for offset, right-reading emulsion-down, from the very same file images.
Scratch test is definitive for emulsion.
I haven't tried this with processed film, but in the darkroom a way to tell emulsion side of raw film was to close your lips over a corner of the sheet. The inner miuth would stick to the emulsion side.
