You may already have this document:


Vuescan has a raw mode but it isn't exactly raw in the meaning associated with digital cameras.

In raw mode the file contains only what the scanner recorded with no curves, WB, or any other parameters applied. But the image is rendered. After you save the Vuescan raw file, you can virtually rescan the raw data any number of times with different Vuescan parameters. The scanner is no loner involved. The advantage is: you only have to physically scan once. So, you can efficiently see how different scanning parameters, such as negative profiles affect the virtual scan. You can also work on the unaltered file in other programs such as LR, PS, etc.

There are many skilled Vuescan users here so I'm sure you will get more (and different) advice.
Basically, I mean, ah—well, let’s say that for me anyway when a photograph is interesting, it’s interesting because of the kind of photographic problem it states—which has to do with the . . . contest between content and form.

I use VueScan to scan according to this:


This is by far the best way I have found to remove the color cast without pain, while keeping the whole dynamic range. This, I think, works only with Nikon scanners that support analog RGBI exposure values.

Then I use the following tool to convert the negatives into positives, while removing any color cast left:


You can do this without the first step, and with any scanner, but if the color cast is strong and the shot is contrasty, you may lose some of the dynamic range on certain color channels.

Hope this helps!
