[filmscanners] Re: Film types with VueScan..

Hi, Tim.

Ed created this option purely to try to correct for the different 'look' of E- 
and K-chromes.
Transparencies by their nature shouldn't really require a vendor setting - the 
primary reason you have it for negatives is that each vendor/film uses a 
different mask color.

He has stated before on this list that the *Image* setting should normally be 
used for slides, as the Slide setting may (and does for me) result in clipping. 
 I suspect his intention was to provide a 'quick and dirty' color correction to 
show the differences in the way these film types capture reality.  For 
'serious' scanning (whatever that is), I suggest you use the Image settings, 
and do those corrections yourself if you want to change the look of the film.

If you look carefully, you'll see they are all color negatives or b&w, not
