I have scanned and printed - up to 20x24 images of
FP4+ and TMX-100 negatives developed in Pyrocat as well as XTOL and have never
had a problem with grain. When you open an image in Photoshop and view the image
at 100% you will see grain - but you are looking at the film at a tremendous
magnification and yes you will see grain - but the proof will be in the
I use an Epson 4870 and use the Epson scanning agent and
scan at 16 bit grey scale.
Hope this helps
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
