How remove "flash" (looks like reflection of a fla

Postby waiter » Mon Jan 22, 2007 6:24 am

I haven't been using Silverfast very long, and am just starting to scan some very old photos (very slightly warped).

When I scan them (48 bit color, 300 or 600 dpi) with no adjustments to Silverfast settings other that selecting the end points of the histogram for light/dark, what I see is an effect in part of the scans that looks like I look a photo with a camera with the flash on and there is the reflection of the flash bouncing back.

The photos are extremely fragile, and I'm not sure if I can compensate for this with the settings, or if the real issue is that I need to put some additional weight on the photo to completely flatten it when in the scanner. You can see the warping of the photo in the scan (due to age, which I actually kind of like and would like to keep if possible).

Any ideas? Thank you!!

Put white cardboard on the photo before closing the lid

When I scan old photos that are curled I always put a piece of thick white cardboard on the photo back then close the lid. This solves my problem by filling in the gaps.
