Dan,
As you know Silverfast is a Photoshop plugin. You might be amused to know
that some folks have trashed Insight because it is not.
A suggestion, could you do raw scans in Insight and edit them in HDR. I
haven't tried it myself. Just a thought.
David

After a photo trip, I usually have several hundred images (sometimes up to
a couple thousand) that I select and scan for archive and posting to my
web site. My workflow is: load 4-slides into the carrier, batch scan, and
repeat till finished. When the scanning is done, I correct/crop/whatever
in photoshop.

I scan at 4000dpi, so it takes a good 5 minutes to do all four in a carrier.
While I'm waiting, I'm basically sitting there in limbo with nothing to do
till the batch scan is done. I can't work on the images in photoshop till
the scanning is complete, or I have to stop scanning. I could cut my
production time in half if I could just use silverfast the way I can use
Insight: run it as its own application, while I use photoshop on the images
that have already been scanned.

Someone else suggested that I use some other image editing program to launch
silverfast. I vaguely recall having tried that, but I don't recall why it
didn't work for me.... I could look into that again, but the REAL point is,
why does silverfast insist on running inside photoshop or any other app?
It seems to me that it should run as its own application as a default, and
then, if the user wants to tinker with the software, figure out to make it
run from inside photoshop.

So, again, can I run it as a separate app? How?
