AuthorSubject: Scanner settings and workflow to create a good profile   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Marco Passanisi
Posted on Sun Jul 6, 2003 10:36 AM

Hi, I'm starting now to create a good profile for my Nikon LS4000 ED, using Silverfast to scan and Profilemaker with an HTC target to make the profile. I'd like to know the recommended settings to scan the target (to create the profile) and subsequently to scan dias.

Scanning the target (of course all the settings like USM and CMS/color corrections are off): 1) 48->24 Bit, 48 Bit or 48 Bit HDR (raw)? 2) Resolution: 600-800 dpi? 3) Gamma: 2.2 or 2.8 (as recommended in Hutch's site)? 4) Autoexposure: on or off (the big question...)? 5) ICE: on or off?

Scanning dias: what settings are strictly connected with those used scanning the target? I suppose that gamma must be the same (true?), but what about autoexposure ("on" scanning target and "on" scanning dias, or are possible/obligatory different combinations, like target-off and dias-on)? The same about Image mode: if the profile is created scanning the target in RAW mode (48 Bit HDR), subsequently the workflow must be in RAW mode (then assigning the profile in PS and converting in Adobe RGB) or it's possible to use 16/8 bit scanning mode (setting Silverfast CMS Tab with the profile created in RAW mode)?

Other question concerning optimising the scanner response: gamma-cheking for example scanning an IT8 target is 100-115 in GS11 patch, ecc., but with HCT target what patches I've to check?

Best regards
