Scratch on B&W filmgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I know this has been addressed before, but I can't find it in the archives. When attempting to deal with a scratch on a negative do you rub grease on the emulsion side or the other ?

I've always used "skin oil" on the emulsion side to diffuse the scratch. You'll find plenty around your nose. It does work.

Put it on whichever side the scratch is on- hopefully not the emulsion side though because that means some of the image is lost.
