Scanning a Polachrome instant slide

Due to the Moirè effect, scanning Polachrome film isn’t an easy task for the Scanner.
The Moire effect is a wavy interference, due to pixels framing and its texture is strictly related to the digital device you are using.
When using Photoshop to resample a Polachrome for Internet you have to manually select the bilinear option in the menu.
