Batch Mode and the 5400

Postby ionian » Tue Jan 13, 2009 9:38 am

Using Batch Mode on Silverfast SE, how do I select only select files to scan? On the Minolta software, when you run the batch wizard, it has boxes marked 1-6 and you tic the ones you want - for example, frames 1,2,3,6.

How do I do this with Silverfast? Silverfast keeps insisting on scanning all 6 frames and as you know, most photo developers here cut the negatives into 4 frames so silverfast is wasting time scanning 2 empty frames.

I only need frames 1-4 scanned on each batch job. I've looked through the manual and I can't find anything concerning this. Can you help me?

Dear Frank,
the trick should be to select the wanted pictures in the overview dialog !

best regards,
