RE: Negative Scanning

Reduce the noise in the BLUE channel. You may even scan as a positive and change in PS or as a color negative but try playing with a bit of noise reduction in the blue channel.

Subject: Negative Scanning


Not sure if this is off topic or not, but I'll test the waters. I recently developed some negatives in pyrocat-HD and I am attempting to scan them in with a Minolta Dimage Scan Multi II using Vuescan. I will admit up that I am at the bottom of the learning curve. My scans come out extremely grainy. If I look at them through a grain focuser I do not see the grain. How can I over come this issue? Is there any books or other guides that can help me along?


Thanks for your time
