Join Taz Tally for an in-depth discussion in this video Should I use SilverFast or Photoshop?, part of SilverFast: Scanning.
In this movie I'd like to address the topic of Scanning versus Photoshop.…Which adjustments should we apply during the scan and which ones should we…apply during Photoshop?…And I want to do at the beginning of this particular special scanning chapter,…because there are lots of tools and techniques that we're going to introduce and…use in this chapter that you may or may not want to apply during the scan.…And to make the point and to help aid the discussion I'm going to redo one of…the scans we've already done, and it's the octopus scan. Let's just magnify…this, and let's just go ahead and do the scan that we did earlier and just talk…about what we're doing here and what we want to do in Photoshop.…
First thing is, we did overview scan and we'll go ahead and name this the…Octopus 1200, we're going to set 1200 pixels per inch resolution, okay.…And then we want to set a Color Sampler Point or Densitometer Point back here.…We saw there was a 6% white background.…At this point we don't really have to remove this in the scanning program.…
