Re: filmscanners: fogged film
Vuescan's settings are so cryptic that I couldn't suggest any concrete
numbers. I would just suggest that after your initial "Preview", you start
by increasing the "Image brightness" to 2 or 3 perhaps, try different Gamma
numbers, uncheck "Auto black point" and try 0 or some decimal (this I've
never needed to try), and even play with the "White point" number %.
The nice thing is that after each adjustment just click "Prev Mem" and
rather than a lengthy re-prescan the program will redo it's memorized
prescanned image and give you a quick result.
