Those amounts you mention would be about the maximum I use on most of my negs,
except that red usually comes down and blue up (FS2710 scanner)
The amount of correction applied here depends greatly on how well VueScan did
the colour balance (White Balance selected normally), which boils down to
whether there was a true white in the picture or not, I suppose. The recent
Vuescans get the colour very close now though, on my current film, Fuji
Superia, using the Reala Japan setting. Greens may still need a small hue shift.
Are you coming up with a setting for Superia, Ed?
