filmscanners: switching of nikonscan colour management



Ralf,

thanks for the advice -
when I switched off Nikons colour management system I got a fantastic colour
preview - (with some sort of grid over it)  it looked like just what I had
been striving for in colour

but...

when I had got the scan a few minutes later, it opened way off in colour
(far far too dark,  nothing at all like the preview

no matter what I do in Photoshop - assign profile, dont assign profile,
assign and convert ... it stays that way - completely out of wack.
what am I doing wrong?

also I don't understand, if cms is off, then what is in sRGB - your photo
editor?

(there is no 'preview mode' in ns 3.1 for windows, so it can't be set to
"lo-cont neutral")

paul
