Join Taz Tally for an in-depth discussion in this video Scanning a color photo as a grayscale image , part of SilverFast: Scanning.
In this video, I'd like to show you how to take a continuous tone color…image, and convert it into a grayscale image, using the automatic scan tools in SilverFast.…But before we actually go there, let's talk a little about our challenges and goals.…First, what we are looking at here is the manual interface for SilverFast, which…is the default interface when you launch SilverFast.…And over in the right-hand side, we see a prescanned image that I've already…created, so we could talk about the challenges of the image.…In a previous movie, we scanned this for the color aspects of it.…In this case, what we want to do is we want to scan this to bring out good…contrast, in terms of just the grayscale of this image.…
We have many of the same challenges and goals that we do with any other…continuous tone image.…We want to first make sure that the diffused highlights in the image, such as the…white Santa hat, is nice, and bright, and white, but still shows detail; not too…bright white, so that we lose detail.…
