Ralf, thanks for reacting quickly to my last post! I would be happy to send you 42 bit scans as suggested, but this may take me some time to arrange. I will have to make some progress with my planned proofing and organising of my old negs before I can select suitable negs for your purposes. However,...

Thanks, Ralf! You have restored my original optimism that SF was bound to have a way of doing what I wanted :) .

As a matter of interest, what are the primary uses of the Alt-Click marquee copy facility that Mr Engelhardt mentioned? When would you want to have multiple marquees on the screen?

It is now almost 2 weeks since I raised my original 2 questions. Neither of them have yet been answered. I realise that this is the time of year when many people may be on holiday, but surely someone from LSI is still monitoring these forums?

My last post was a week ago. It raised some questions but I have not yet had any answers. I am not optimistic about a useful outcome, but nevertheless I would be grateful for a reaction from Mr Engelhardt or anyone else at LSI.

Using your Alt-click suggestion, I started to create multiple scan frames around individual negatives. It's a slow process on my PC, and it is difficult to place the frames accurately, without zooming every one which would take forever. That by itself was almost enough to kill my enthusiasm for such...

Help needed in using SF for proofing scans!

I use 'Clear File' polypropylene pages to store all my 35mm negatives. Each page can store up to 40 negatives in strips of 4. Essentially, I use each page to store an entire 35mm roll of film. I now want to use my A3 flatbed scanner (Epson 1640XL) to make proofing scans of each page. My problem, as ...

Mr Engelhardt, Your reply merely tells me where to find the limited list of Kodak profiles that caused me to raise this topic in the first place!!! I would appreciate answers to the two questions I have raised: 1. Why has LSI not already developed profiles for at least the most popular of the older ...

What about older Kodak negatives?

I have only been a SilverFast 5.5 Ai user for one week and have just upgraded to Version 6. I would appreciate some clarification regarding NegaFix profiles for older 35mm Kodak films, e.g. Kodacolor, Kodacolor II and Ektar. There must be billions of such negatives in existence so why has LSI not al...

Thanks for the rapid clarification. However, don't you think that it would be much more useful, especially to first time users, if you made this point clear on the NegaFix profile download web page? I did wonder whether or not a full SilverFast update download might update these profiles, but I did ...

How do I update Negafix profiles for Epson 1640XL?

I bought my 1640XL only a few days ago and I'm just starting to get to grips with using SilverFast Ai 5.5. My first point of confusion is that SilverFast (as installed from the CD) does not seem to list many negative film types and the NegaFix download facility on the LSI website specifically exclud...
