That may be fine for images you intend to post on the web, but by leaving it
in the sRGB color space you are limiting the colors available for archiving
and for printing. This is also BTW the reason the colors don't look flat -
because the colors have been compressed.
I prefer to scan and leave the image in Bruce or Adobe RGB, and change to
sRGB only the copies I intend to post to the web. The archived scan will
remain in a wider color space despite the 'flat' appearance.

Subject: filmscanners: VueScan + flat colors
| I think the problem is solved with flat colors etc in VueScan and how
| its shows on a calibrated LACIE 22" display.( Color Vision Spyder)
| 6500K and gamma 1.8. Working space in Photoshop Adobe RGB. MAC computer.
| 1. VueScan = best results negative scanning , S-RGB and gamma 1.4-1.8
| If I use VueScan and the Adobe RGB color space settings the picture will
| flat and dull in colors.
| 2. Do not convert the S-RGB VueScan picture in Photoshop, to another
| color space as Adobe RGB = flat and dull colors
| 3. The results are now rely good and equivalent with Silverfast 5.2.1 r04
| The results are shown to mr Ed Hamrick.
