Maybe somebody in RFF can help me. I've got this really weird problem that I can't get a handle on.
- I scan with a Reflecta RPS 700 and Silverfast Ai, version 6.6.2r5.
- This problem occurs ever since I upgraded to r5.
- I do not have it with pictures scanned with r4.
- Regardless of the settings (color depth, resolution, etc.) this problem happens whenever I scan color film. But not when I scan greyscale.
- When I transfer the images to other computers, like to my Ipad or to my computer at work, I do not have the problem.
Description of problem.
- After scanning, when I open a picture with Windows Picture Viewer (on Windows 7) for an instant the picture looks ok. Then everything takes on a green/turquoise tinge, even the frame around the picture, which in Windows Picture Viewer is usually white.
- When I open the image in PS Elements, which I use for post-processing, the colors do not have the green tinge, but they are all far too intense, especially the yellows and the blues. I get the same effect when I publish the pictures on ipernity, and then open them with my browser.
- The images look fine if I open them with Paint or Quicktime.
- And the main problem: in Elements, when I downscale to 800 pixels wide and I convert to JPG (I usually scan in TIF) in lowest quality, I cannot reduce the file size to below about 450 Kb - too large to post on RFF.
The people at Silverfast can't help. I would like to downgrade back to r4, but it is no longer available. And anyway, it seems to be some kind of problem on my computer. Probably some kind of setting deep in the bowles of my computer.
There is so much expert knowledge here at RFF, I hoping someone might have a tip for me.
Here's a link to a unprocessed TIF scan on my ipernity stream. It would be great to know If anyone else has this problem on their computers. If the sky looks sickly artificial blue, then it is the same problem I have.
Many thanks to anybody who can help!
