[filmscanners] Re: RAW?



Photoshop is so bloated. I don't want to be "that" creati
ve. 

Vuescan has a one click white balance. Or you let
 it adjust by itself. Its up to you. The deal is you have
 it raw and then to go to town. Now I don't know if photo
shop can handle a raw from vuescan. 

While I'm at it h
ere, you should calibrate the scanner. Vuescan has a simp
le IT8 procedure. Now this might only be in the pro versi
on.

 Re: RAW?

Gary,

I was actually thinking of doing th
e scans, then using Photoshop or
similar for image proce
ssing.  I hadn't ever considered that it might
be possib
le to use Vuescan to do the processing.

Interesting.
