Batch scanning - pictures dark

Postby tique » Mon Jan 08, 2018 2:45 pm

I have one last problem with Silverfast 8.8.0 and my EPSON V800.
Since I want to scan thousands of slides looking for an acceptable result without having to edit each photo before and after the scan.
I have to point out that I compare Silverfast 8.8, v**s**n and Epson scan for the same slides.

Everything seems good except that scanned photographs with Silverfast are all a little bit dark while v**s**n and Epson scan give similar and acceptable results. I like Silverfast and for this reason I have done a lot of rehearsals.
For example with picture setting (cumulative - setting of the first frame applied to all photos) I see the change and the good preview but after scanning the photos are always too dark. My setting is 3200 ppi, 48-24 bit, Tiff
Where am I wrong ?

Dear user,

Have you checked the image in 1:1 or HQ preview mode? It shows the fully edited image using the set resolution.
Every scan frame has its own individual settings. The Frame menu allows you to copy settings from the active frame to all others.

Kind regards
