what's best setting for scanning black / white negs?

Hi: 1. It seemed obvious to me when scanning black / white negatives (inorder to create HDR files) to use the setting "16 Bit HDR Grayscale". 2. However, I recently read something in NAPP Photoshop user which recommended scanning black and white negs in color, d/t greater tonality etc... 3. Thus, wh...

HDR Scanning and gamma gradation?

Hi: 1. I use silverfast ai (within photoshop), and I usually make 48 bit HDR Color scans (color negatives). 2. Question: Does it matter what the "gamma gradation" is, when making 48 bit HDR scans? 3. I've done some basic tests, scanning the same negative with gamma gradations of 1.00, 1.80 (default)...

still getting terrible color cast; solution???

1. I'm sorry to grip about the same problem, but after scanning various negs for the past several days, I'm just at the end of my rope dealing with the terrible results from Silverfast AI (negafix). 2. Problem: I've noted before and I continue to get an overt reddish cast to my scans. I've sent imag...

How can I DECREASE contrast?

1. I'm using the following: * Silverfast ai 6 * Polaroid 120 * Mac OS 9 * Color Negative Film 2. Of the above variables, the only "problem" is with Silverfast ai. When I use v**s**n, I am easily able to view the current prescan histogram / image and adjust the black & white point so that I have ...

Anyway, this problem has been going on for the past, 2+ months, we've been writing about this problem, I've persona...

1. I did what you suggested--basically, it didn't help at all. However, here are the details of what I found: a. With version 6.0 2r31, I scanned the reference negative, moved the auto tolerance up and down, on / off etc... It did NOT improve the color balance issue. Moving the tolerance slider to t...

1. Thanks for the suggestion; I will try it tonight however I have doubts that this will solve the problem, because I tried playing around with the tolerance slider and all it did was make the problem worse. Nonetheless, I will try it in a more systematic fashion and then report the results tonight....

1. Just a follow up (tangent) to my problem; it may be somewhat relavent to this issue (ie bug with current version of silverfast). I was having a reddish color casts to my scans (negatives). After reading these posts, it finally dawned on me that it could be a bug in the software--> I got rid of th...

1. in re: changing the tolerance slider, I did read about the suggestion to do that by the president of LSI. The bottomline is that it does NOT help the color cast with the current version, because something is wrong with the current version (yes I did try moving the tolerance slider). And again to ...

Addendum to the above original post: 1. Yes, there is a bug with the current version of silverfast. 2. What I did was delete the current version of silverfast. Then I loaded the previous version (Silverfast 6, 2r20)--> I then scanned the reference negative I've been using for the past few days--> it...

Bug with Silverfast 6.0 2r.31? (negafix & color cast)

1. First of all, thanks to LSI for working on correcting the problem with the last version of silverfast 6 (SDR problem)--> everything is working great now and I really like the SDR function; excellent. 2. The SDR problem was solved with the current version (6.0 2r.31), however I think there's now a...

1. This is somewhat off topic and thus I'll probably post this as a new topic elsewhere... However, I recently downloaded the current version of silverfast 6ai. What I've noticed is that when I use negafix (I just shoot negs), there is a definite mild to moderate reddish colorcast. I've reviewed how...
