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 using the manual interface in SilverFast,…you can convert a color continuous tone image into a grayscale image.…And we are going to be using a lot of the same tools we've used in color and…grayscale correction, we are just going to use them in a slightly different way. Okay.…There are couple of different ways to go about doing this, but probably the…easiest and most efficient way is to go ahead and just first convert the image…into grayscale. After you've set your Reflective and Positive, then click on…16 bit to 8 bit, or if you wanted to end up with a 16 bit image, then you…could click 16 Bit here.…
But we are going to end up with an 8 Bit image.…We are going to do all the correction right here in the Scanner interface.…We're going to choose 16 Bit to 8 Bit.…And notice that automatically converts the image to grayscale and frankly, it…doesn't look half bad, but we can do better.…So what we are going to do is what we always do, is we're going to pull our scan…
