February 2nd, 2012 · 4 Comments · analogue photography, HowTo, News, Processing, Quicktips, SilverFast, Tips and Tutorials

SilverFast has a very helpful tool to help you find pictures loaded onto your flatbed scanner and frame them.

For this example I wil use 35 mm slides.

First simply select the kind of material to be scanned.

Select source

Select source

Then make a prescan to have an overview with all pictures in the scanner.

Press the prescan button

Press the prescan button

 

Under the menu “Frame” find the submenu “Find frames” and select the type of film to be found.

SilverFast finds all the pictures and lays a scan frame around them.

After this you can proceed to make individual corrections. Clicking any of the frames will select it, you can resize or move it as well as applying any corrections to the selected picture.

Once you are done with all your corrections you can press the scan button once for a single scan or press and hold the scan button and choose the “BatchScan” option to scan all the pictures included there.

    Can individual images be rotated like in the previous version of SilverFast?

    Hello J-Cm
    yes, images can be individually rotated. flipped and mirrored.

    That’s great to hear. This feature should not be buried under a series of sub-menus. The fact that this blog post was necessary shows that people were not able to find where this feature had been moved since v6.x.

    This is a first-class tool that should be accessible via a button and also via keyboard shortcuts.

    Hello J-C,
    although I wouldn’t jump to conclusions on why we published this quick-tip, we appreciate your feedback and will take it into consideration for our product planning.
