SilverFast “Against Decomposition”

Digitizing Photos, Slides and Negatives, Part 1

“Winter time is best to recover analog image treasures and to store them digitally in high quality or to make them available to others. The instruments therefore have never been more varied, sophisticated and less expensive.” (Jeremias Radke)

This article introduces different approaches for digitizing photographic material. A particularly detailed focus is put on “Scanning with SilverFast”.

Mac & i « Everyone, who needs quality scans, can hardly avoid SilverFast. Post-processing the scanned images using an additional image editing software is usually unnecessary, because SilverFast already features important editing functionality for color and brightness correction, for noise reduction, for sharpening, and for dust and scratch removal. »

However, a small inaccuracy has slipped into the article: The article states, any dust and scratch removal is always accompanied by a loss of sharpness. That is correct in relation to many common tools, but does not apply to SilverFast iSRD and SRDx. And that is exactly what is exceptional with our dust and scratch removal tools iSRD (infrared channel based) and SRDx (software based): Both do not blur the images; therefore, the basic detail sharpness remains fully intact.

The complete article (German) can be found in the current Mac & i issue (# 1/2016) or for downloading from the heise archive (as PDF for 3,29 €).
