I'm reading the vuescan advanced workflow technique where the guide suggests locking exposure on a blank frame, etc etc.
I tried this once a while back before I was comfortable using vuescan and ended up with some strange results. So I hesitate to approach it again, however, I'm sort of in a learning and curious mood.
Here are my questions:
- does the advanced workflow work with all types of film (slide, print, b&w?), or are there specific ones I should stay away from?
- does the advanced workflow have any affect to stuff on the "color" tab, where the color balance stuff is? (maybe better worded, do the color tab settings have any affect on the advanced workflow)...
- that color tab has often led me to have weird problems, never sure what to set it to.. typically whatever gets me the best results. If I'm scanning "raw" files to edit later, will this have any affect now, or only later when I reedit the files?
With regards to the "raw" scanning, it seems this is a fairly quick way to get to basic adjustments on the files. I'm not sure if there's a question in here...
... just trying to figure out how to minimize time in PS, as my computer is fairly slow with the big files when I want to work with them, and it's time consuing and frustrating beause PS is so slow! Maybe I should buy a new computer instead of a new lens.... !
So how do ya'll do this? Better to keep it simple, scan as positive, work in PS? *shrug*
