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.
In this movie I'd like to show you how to streamline your scanning workflow, make yourself more efficient by using BatchScan. So, let's say you get to this point, you've learned how to use all the tools, you're a really hot scanner operator now, you are creating really good-looking images. Well, your next task is going to be how can I speed up workflow so I can get some more time kayaking? And one of the answers to that is Batch Scanning. What you see here is we have placed three images on the scan bed. We have created three different frames and you can see they're numbered 1, 2 and 3 in the order in which they were created.
And notice as you click from one frame to the other, all the setups that you have created in terms of naming and resolution and histogram and gradation and color correction, those are all over here, so you can access each one just by clicking on them. Well, if you just click on one of the scan frames and we do what we normally do that is just click on Scan, it's just going to scan that one active scan frame. But you can scan all three of these. And the way you make this work is, instead of just clicking on Scan frame, if you are just a little bit patient, if you click and hold, you can choose BatchScan.
And then what's going to happen is SilverFast is going to move from scan frame one to scan frame two and scan frame three, and it's going to apply all the settings that you have individually assigned to each of those images. And during the process, once we start the BatchScan process, just look down in the lower left-hand corner on the Scanner status and you can follow the progress of each scan. Or, you can just click on BatchScan and go prepare your kayak for an afternoon of paddling.
