[filmscanners] RE: VS vs. NS Cleaning

Thanks for the GIMP tip, Erik. I've tried using GIMP (WinXP), but I guess
I'm addicted to PS. In my hands the filters you mention in either one don't
reduce those fine residual dust&scratches artifacts left after IR cleaning
without unacceptable softening.

I posted my results with VS7.3.9 to this group because it seemed to have
cured the IR cleaning problem it had with previous versions. In fact I
thought VS did an excellent job with the Kodachrome in my example, as did
NS's 'normal' ICE, but that NS was a little better, without significant
softening. NS's 'fine' ICE cleans beautifully, but does soften
significantly, though.

Happy New Year!

I think that both Vuescan and Digital ICE don't work very well with
Kodachrome slides, which has also been stated many times. As far as I know
Digital ICE softens the image, while Vuescan does not. So I'd suggest that
applying som additional filter (dust and scratches) in Photoshop may help. I
use GIMP (under Linux) mostly, which has a Despeckle filter which, according
to my experince, is much superior to 'dust and scratches' in PhotoShop.

Best regards
