Another thought - use your "usual procedure" and if the scan comes out right
save the settings (File-Save Options), then reload them for the Raw scan
The procedure Rob is thinking of may be to make your scan, then uncheck the
"Auto mask" box on the Color tab and adjust the "Mask red" you then see
until it's right. You can then save those new settings as well.
