How to design a look for your recipe
Browse the style gallery below and the script settings above. Use the following decision algorithm as a guide:
- Your main decision is between a cropped look and a fancy look, where the outer scanner mask edges are included in the scan. This is set by the setting fancy.
- If you chose a cropped look, the settings border_width_35mm, border_width_645, border_width_67, border_width_45 and border_width_square determines the thickness of the visible border. The setting matted_crop determines if the entire image and its border should be placed on a white background.
- If you chose a fancy look, with visible scanner mask edges, you now have a choice between scanner mask styles for each aspect ratio. The style for each aspect ratio is determined with the settings mask_variant_35mm, mask_variant_645, mask_variant_67, mask_variant_45 and mask_variant_square. For square images, the setting negative_variant_square switches between a Rolleiflex look and a Hasselblad look for the negative. The setting artifacts determines if scanner artifacts should be added outside the mask border.
- Decide if you prefer the image area to be centered in the frame (with more or less equal thickness of the border), or a scan towards one of the inner mask edges. This is set with the setting eccentric.
- If you want to add a film burn effect on your frames, use the setting burn and burn_at_opposite_edge to add and position a burn. The setting monochrome_burn determines if the burn should be monochrome or not.
