I'm a bit reluctant to spend yet another $45 dollars on this program, since the first $400 I spent yielded a piece of software that doesn't do what I thought it would do. (That is, it doesn't seem capable of producing decent negative scans with my particular scanner; it doesn't seem like it can prod...

No, I'm not using HDR. However, I like Photoshop, and prefer to use its controls for adjusting the image, since that's what it's for. Often, I try different tweaks before I get it the way I want. In your scenario, I would have to repeat the scan, just to get a file with different adjustments, which ...

(Using 5.2.1r05 with Nikon LS-2000, calibrated with E0105111 reference slide.) I'm getting really wretched results when scanning negatives. The colors all look unnatural. Sometimes, I scan two adjacent negatives, of substantially the same subject, and they come out with dramatically different color ...

Thanks, Tomaz. I got that. It was Ian who mentioned a Photoshop serial number. I will try it all when I get home tonight.

You're telling me that SilverFast wants me to type in my Photoshop serial number? I don't recall ever doing that when I installed the twain version. What exactly does it do with someone else's serial number? And having used Export in the twain version's calibration dialog, do I have to do that again...

With the Nikon LS-2000, the SilverFast twain driver has a fatal bug, and so it's necessary to use the Photoshop plugin instead. However, when I went to do the color calibration, I found that the Photoshop plugin doesn't have a Calibrate button. I had to go back to the Twain driver just to do the cal...

Thanks for that pointer. There are several buttons in the Preview window which are mentioned nowhere in the SilverFast documentation. It's irritating that after paying several hundred bucks for a mere twain driver (more than I paid for hundreds of megabytes of MS Office) that I have to read someone ...

SilverFast 5 for Nikon LS-2000 as a Twain driver with Photoshop 5.02 under Win2KPro.

Having inserted a strip of four negatives into my scanner, how do I get SilverFast to scan anything other than the first image? If it's in the manual, I can't find it.

SilverFast 5 for Nikon LS-2000 as a Twain driver with Photoshop 5.02 under Win2KPro. I've got a film strip inside my scanner. How do I get it out? I can do it in the NikonScan software, primitive as it may be. I am almost willing to bet money that the SilverFast manual doesn't describe any button fo...
