[filmscanners] Re: Intentional clipping



If i'm not mistaken shadows should be at 0 and highlights should be below
255 unless they are specular (reflections).
Cheers,
Andre

Subject: [filmscanners] Intentional clipping


Now that I have good software that prevents highlights from clipping
(VueScan and NikonScan) I
wonder in what circumstances should I intentionally clip some highlights.
Since I'm no expert in professional printing, I've no idea which parts of
image look good
when they are 255 white (apart from reflections).
For example clouds. When I adjust levels in Photoshop (Alt depressed),
should I clip them when they start being indiciated in blue or clip them
until they appear white or don't clip at all?
What are other circumstances in which clipped highlights look natural and
good in print?
And what about shadows? Do I always should leave the left (shadow) side
unclipped? What area should be clipped to black?
Any examples of highlights and shadows clipping?

Regards

Tomek
