In this course, photographer and scanning expert Taz Tally describes how to use the LaserSoft Imaging SilverFast software to scan photos, line art, film negatives, and other printed documents, while getting the highest quality scans possible from your scanner. The course begins with an overview of SilverFast, then takes a task-oriented look at the SilverFast automatic and manual scanning modes, showing numerous scanning projects from start to finish. The course also explores a variety of specialized scanning topics, such as removing color casts and scratches, High Dynamic Range (HDR) scanning, and wet scanning.
Hi! I am Taz Tally. And I'd like to welcome you to Scanning with SilverFast 8. If you're a previous version user of SilverFast, say versions 1-6, you're going to see some pretty familiar tools, but you're also going to see a completely changed interface. Like the new SilverFast 8 interface, this course is broken up into two sections: Automatic Scanning and Manual Scanning. First we'll cover Automatic, and we'll show you how to set up in Automatic mode. And then we'll do a whole series of projects. Then we'll move onto the Manual Scanning and, again, show you how to set up your manual interface and then, again, do a whole series of individual projects using the manual interface.
Right from the get-go I'd like to encourage you to learn and use the Manual Scanning interface, because you're going to have access to all of SilverFast's really sophisticated tools, and you're going to have complete control over and confidence in the creation of your final scanned images. So let's don our cotton gloves and get started scanning with SilverFast 8.
