Most unusual Berry--
I don't understand why 1 out of 4 gives such unusual results. I would try
scanning in 8 bit mode just as an experiment and turning ColorSync off.
Something strange is happening to the way the color is balanced. Could you
email me another jpeg? One of the 3 that is working right? My email address
is jphipps@asf.com.

I can't see any reason why you would get different results. BTW, you can try
Digital ROC for free just to see what it does to the image. I'll email my
result to you.

As I said before, I have scanned the negative repeatedly, and always the
same result.  I scanned it at 16 bits.  I have ColorSync color management.
I guess I could scan it with ColorSync turned off.  Have you ever heard of
it adjusting the color in an inappropriate way like this?  That would be a
serious software defect.

Thanks for looking at it,
