Join Taz Tally for an in-depth discussion in this video Scanning a positive piece of film, part of SilverFast: Scanning.
In this movie, I'd like to show you how to do a scan of a positive piece of film;…it could be a slide, or could be a larger one, like this is a 2.0" by 2.0" piece…of film, working in automatic mode.…First, let's just take a look at our image here by moving our scan frame down,…and we do the old two corner trick here to make it easy to zoom in, and then…we'll click our magnifying glass, and when we look at this image, as always, we…say, what's important about this image?…There is really no critical white highlight in this image, and there is no…critical shadow; about the only thing that's closest to that is the dress that we…can see the detail in here.…
But what this image is really about is the skin tones, so any adjustments we…make to this image, we want to make sure that the skin tones look okay.…so let's skip on over to automatic mode by moving up into the upper…left-hand corner, and click on the WorkflowPilot, and that takes us into the automatic mode.…And as always when we're working in automatic mode, we answer two key questions,…
