Anyone out there consider themselves an expert with this scanner? I bought one a couple of weeks ago and I am having mixed results. The instruction manual is poor and so scanning is just a time-consuming trial and improvement exercise at the moment.
I am scanning slides and B&W negatives. I have Photoshop 7 and PSP (latest) for post-scan. Can't decide which of these I like best either!
If anyone could tell me how to get the most from this scanner it would be most welcome.
Specific questions: 8 bit or 12 bit scanning? save as TIFF or JPEG?
using ICE seems to degrade colour quality? RBG or CYMK? Is it better to leave brightness and contrast alone and then adjust in PS?
Hope to hear from someone soon.
