Join Taz Tally for an in-depth discussion in this video Using automated vs. manual scanning, part of SilverFast: Scanning.
In this segment, I would like to continue our discussion of automatic versus…manual workflows, and I would like to dig a little deeper and show you some of…the advantages and disadvantages of each one and when you might want to work…in one or the other.…Let's start this session by doing an automatic scan. And we will choose our input,…or Source, as Photo and our Task as Color and Intensity, and then we will…initiate the Preview Scan.…That allows us to set our frame, which we will set regardless of which workflow…method we are using.…
And then let's step forward and do our automatic correction.…Notice the image is much improved, no doubt about it. Better brightness, better…contrast, better colors. But now I want to switch over to Manual mode.…I want to show you one of the real advantages of working in manual mode.…And that is we have access to some pretty sophisticated tools, in this case…something called the Densitometer, which is SilverFast's version of the Info tool in Photoshop.…With this tool--not only by clicking here and here--can I locate the highlight…
