Re: filmscanners: CD from Scanner
Burt: Though I do not have a Dell I do have the same software. I have
found that the CD writer software woorks a lot better if you go through
the workflow the Dell rep. suggested. It may be cumbersome but it does
work best. I have usually done some cleaning and sharpening and
sometimes croping in PS before placing the image(s) on the CD. Going to
Windows Explorer to delete the files, to me, is only a minor
inconvenience unless your HD has a very low storage capacity. I usually
scan only as a tif and I have lots of room with what is now a
relatively small (6 gig) drive that really has about 1 gig free to work
with. I definitiely do not deal with the images one at a time. That
would really make the process cumbersome.
