RE: filmscanners: Nikon 8000ED
Well, actually, since USM is about the last thing I do to an image (hmm, I
hardly ever use it), it seems quite reasonable to go to 8 bits then do USM
RGB->LAB->RGB is innocuous, though, isn't it?
CMYK->LAB->CMYK isn't innocuous as far as I know, but that's mostly to do
with the fact that CMYK is "broken" isn't it (any conversion to CMYK is
going to "lose" quality)? If someone has a source of detailed info on this,
I'd be fascinated to read some more.
