In this project I'd like to show you how to scan complex line art using the…automatic interface in SilverFast, but before we go there, let's just talk a…little bit about the challenges we have with detailed line art.…In an earlier portion of the course we scanned simple line art, and the issue…there was all about edge reproduction. And here it's still about edge…reproduction, but it's also about detail reproduction.…And notice in this particular piece of line art there is an enormous amount of…detail. This is a pen-and-ink drawing of an octopus, which is used as one of the…logos for the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies, where I live up on Kachemak…Bay, in Homer, Alaska.…
And when you think about this kind of line art, it's kind of like halfway…between a photograph and just a simple logo.…So we have some of the challenges of both line art and a continuous-tone image.…So the tools and decisions that we're going to make will reflect this additional…challenge of having more detail in the image.…
