What are Newton Rings?

Newton Rings are rings that result from two reflective objects being pressed against each other, in this case your instant photo and scanning glass. 

About the Scan Adapters

Our scan adapters lift the photo away from the scanning glass, while holding it in the precise position for a scan free of any annoying Newton Rings. Each scan adapter is 3D printed out of PLA plastic using a Lulzbot Taz 5 3D Printer. I use a tiny bit of this removable putty to hold my photos in place while scanning.

Without a scan adapter, Newton Rings are visible.
