[filmscanners] Re: Scanning a foggy image


The different settings in Vuescan can have an enormous effect on the image.
I always save the raw scan, and then process it in Vuescan in six different
ways - it only takes a few minutes - and then choose which is best.

I use Whitebalance, Neutral, and None, with both the Film and Image
settings. Try some of these if you haven't done so already; Neutral or None
may give you a better result than correction for WhiteBalance.

With the Films setting you include color correction for the type of film you
select so that the imagae will look more like the original; with the Image
setting, you don't correct for film type so the image will look more like
the screen.
