AuthorSubject: Custom Profile for Imacon Photo Scanner   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Howard Cubell
Posted on Thu Jul 10, 2003 9:25 PM

Jeff(or Andrew or Bruce):
I have an Imacon Photo for which I have tried to create a custom profile using the HCT target(35mm Velvia) and basICColor Scan software. The profiles I have made with this package have not been useful:the scans are dark and have a bluish color cast. The profiles I made with a plain IT8 target were better, as was the canned Photo input profile.
There are two separate issues. The first relates to the proper settings in Flexcolor 3.5 for setting up the scanner for creating a custom profile.
1. Do you check Preview Crop Area Only or Enhanced Shadow Detail?
2. What are the best settings under the Contrast Tab for contrast, Brightness, Gamma and Shadow Depth?
3. Do you uncheck Apply USM or use the negative number(-120?) with Apply to turn it off completely?
4. Uncheck Apply under the CC Tab?
5. Leave the Auto Settings at o for both Shadow and Hightlight?
6. What settings in the Dot Tab?
7. The right settings for the Colorsync Tab I know.
8. What do you do with the Auto button before the scan of the target and after the profile is created and in place for a scan?
9. Finally, do you always(or almost always) leave the settings alone and bring the 16 bit file into Photoshop to work on for color balance, contrast, USM, etc?
The other issue is that I cannot seem to crop the target scan in the basICColor Scan software to get all of the squares in the patches white and aligned in the corresponding patches. If you are familiar with this software, do you have any idea what the problem may be?
Thank you for your advice.
Howard Cubell
