Re: filmscanners: Colour fix problem

Title: Re: filmscanners: Colour fix problem
The greenmig photo can be color corrected and fixed - fairly easily. (corrected greenmig sent direct to poster, with PS adjustments shown on graphics of each modification) He uses PSP, which I have no knowledge about, so some adjustments may not be easily accomplished, such as Selective Color, which was used to take the yellow out of the white floor.

 Neither the film captured (greenmig) nor the digimig photos exhibit broad gamut as shown below in two 9kb graphics.

Both are 2D L.a.b. graphics, referencing ColorMatchRGB in the green outline with the color gamut data of the picture (extracted from the photo in ColorThink) shown as red. The film photo actually has a broader gamut than the digital picture. The scene itself was not a particularly saturated color situation. See comparison with ColorMatchRGB gamut.

Original greenmig:

The digimig photo:

The problem is that the film captures what data fits in it's gamut at the
time of the shot, and information is just not there for you to adjust the
color. The digicam is probably doing a white balance and capturing a
different gamut.
