    Default Digital ICE torture test

    Hi,

    Here's an old, unwanted slide which I have thrown one side and gathered some dust. Also purposefully scratched emulsion side (heh). Here's what it looks like from a straight scan:



    With ICE enabled:



    Pretty impressive. Other than the parts where the emulsion is totally scratched off, the rest of the scratches and dust are more or less eradicated.

    Regards

    Healing brush is MAGIC! Healing brush is god's gift to mankind! Healing brush has no equal!! Healing brush is also a toolbar item in Photoshop 7 - something like a clone tool for a novice. Very useful to "heal" dust/scratches - time consuming but prett effective.

    he's using THAT coolscan III...
    I somehow had two rolls of commissioned shots all fking spotty... wished I had the ICE.. healing brush is painful with about 70 shots going through PS7 at 10mp on a p3...
    as for healing brush, good for larger areas but use with care when there's an edge or fine lines involved... the sampling can sometimes introduce alien details...
    so anyone want my dual ii? then I can buy the acer 2740s again..

    u really want meh? but I a bit broke now... bought too many stuff like bag, 50mm, filters, flash adptors etc etc etc... and still got mountain to scan...

    diff is USB 1.1, 3.2D, bifocal vs trifocal... and of cos price... probs is sometimes got irritating purple line... dunno it's my usb-cpu load or what... sometimes dun have... but I tend to run edonkey+PS7+IE+icq+scan+kazaa so many that's the thing lol...

    PS:bifocal is joke... two I's vs three...

    but for the 3.2D it's still very wide... I gamma up a lot the shadows still got stuff...

    Read HERE for information on Digital ICE and all related technologies from Applied Science Fiction.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    The old, discontinued but nevertheless very good Nikon Coolscan III (LS30) which I got a friend to buy for me at Sitex.

    The scanner has this technology called "Digital ICE" (you can read more from roy's link) which uses a combination of hardware and software to digitally remove scratches and dust. VERY effective as you can see here.

    This is on VueScan. NikonScan will have the same effect. I find VueScan a wee bit faster....

    I'm using Nikon Scan 1.31, but the digital ICE functions seem to be always disabled. How do i enable digital ICE in Nikon Scan 1.31? or for that matter, in VueScan?

    I'm using a CoolScan III.

    thanks in advance.

    Isn't 1.31 very, very old? I am using 3.13. Digital ICE is enabled/disabled via the Tools palette.
