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.
