Re: filmscanners: Color saturation with Vuescan

I think what the low-budget photo printers must do is set the black and
white points of the image well inside their normal settings, losing detail
in highlights and shadows.

The best I could recommend is a lot of sweat continuing to practice working
with levels and curves in Photoshop.

Subject: filmscanners: Color saturation with Vuescan

| I have a Minolta Scan Dual I purchased recently, mostly with the thought
| of using it with color negative film for web work. It was inexpensive
| and I assumed it would be adequate for my intended use. I have been
| using Vuescan with it and have been basically pleased with how it's
| worked out with one exception. - Color saturation.
| It seems no matter what I try my scans come out "flat" for lack of a
| better word. They just don't seem to have much color,  yet the negatives
| are fine when printed using a standard photographic process.
| I can fix this to a large degree in Photoshop, but it's tedious and
| difficult to keep the color balance correct, especially with skin tones.
| No matter what I try, even a low $$ photographic reprint still looks
| much better to my eye.
| I'm pretty new to all this and I can't help but think there is something
| basic I'm missing... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
