I just tried it with a slide that's been causing me grief and it appears to
have worked quite well and I can't see any nasty side effects. I admit that
right now I'm not a customer, but having tried in vain to get a decent

I've come to the conclusion I will have to buy Vuescan too. The long
exposure looks quite useful to me in the right circumstances.
