[filmscanners] Re: Scanning B & W



Austin, Simon...

Thanks for your comments and suggestions....

Mac McDougald also pointed me to an interesting site yesterday... in case
you missed his mail, am reposting the address:

http://www.digidaan.nl/index2.html

On the left is a panel... when you hover over it various links come to
"light". Click on the one called "Mixer"

Anyway... what all of you seem to basically say... and that makes a lot of
sense to me... is let the scanner do the raw scan in RGB and then with *all*
that info at hand do the tweaking and converting to grayscale in PS.

Need to fool around a lot more... unfortunately, have got caught up with
some urgent work and it'll be at least a couple iof days before i can do any
more B&W scans... will keep you guys posted on my successes or further
problems/questions :)

Again, thanks for the inputs...

Regards,

Shunith

It depends on the scanner, as well as your skill in PS, and your skill with
that particular scanner interface.  You should be able to get better results
by scanning in RGB (since that's what the scanner does anyway) and doing the
conversion your self in PS...and that's where your skill as a scanner
operator vs a PS operator comes into play.  I would suggest trying both and
seeing what YOU find fits the results you are looking for best.

It's a shame that scanner drivers for scanner that scan B&W in RGB don't let
you give it the "mix" proportions...

Regards,

Austin
