With the introduction of the Automatic Frame Detection multiple reflective or transparent images can now be selected, scanned and optimized automatically with a single mouse-click. This comes in especially handy when scanning away a analogue archive of slides or reflective originals. But what is the perfect frame when doing a scan. Some people may want to preserve some of the black parts around a slide, others would rather eliminate in order to keep the filesize down a little bit. You can choose your preferred setting in SilverFast under Options as often. In the Auto panel there is a setting called Autoframe-Inset. The concept is very simple. The value entered here i.e. 10 will set the scan frame 10 % further “into” the object to be scanned. But there is also the possibility to enter a negative value, which will result in a increased frame, adding a little bit more “meat” around the object.
This was implemented by popular demand from our users. It makes a lot of sense when scanning for an archive, leaving the cropping to the post scanning stage of the workflow.
If you are interested into the Autoframe itself you can find a demo movie right here.
