To the scanner group.
As a photographer Im "little bit tired "of reading about ( VueScan nr
xxxx ) and i hoped to learn something from other people in the group, who
can be more interesting and useful.
Therefor i begin with a small tip:
To some of you who all ready know it- come with a another tip !
Scanning negative film and skin tones are sometimes a tuff job. You have
nothing to compare against, (as with a slide.)
Faces and skin tones become often to red in printing, A good rule is to
measure the face skin tone in a CMYK profile known for printing purpose.
(do it in Photoshop 5.0 6.0)
If you make corrections and have
C about half of magenta
M less then Yellow
Y more then magenta + 5-10 %
This figures give you a more natural skin tone in printing , and the red and
ugly are goon.
Another good rule to know is that
Grey in CMYK are about C= 32 M=20 Y0=20
You can often estimate something in the picture who are grey.
