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 course we concentrate on learning the tools and interface of SilverFast 8. While it's possible to complete this class and learn to use SilverFast 8 without a lot of prior knowledge, I think you'll be happier and learn a good deal more if you have some fundamentals of scanning underneath your belt. The good news is we've got courses in the Online Training Library at lynda.com that provide you with this exact information. For instance, my scanning techniques for photography, art, and design has an entire chapter--Chapter 1 on Scanning Fundamentals--to provide you everything you need to know about those fundamentals for scanning.
And in Chapter 2 we cover cleaning your scanner and cleaning your images. While studying these two chapters is not a requirement, I highly recommend that you do this.
