Fujimura praised unprecedented excellence in dust removal and tonal richness of SilverFast scans

Daisuke Fujimura, Japanese photographer, took a very close look at SilverFast 9, especially the functions iSRD & SRDx (dust removal) and Multi-Exposure.

iSRD & SRDx (dust removal functionality):
« Until now, I used to use editing software to check for scratches and dust while zooming in on the image after scanning, and then manually erase them using a copy stamp tool each time. However, SilverFast can remove dust and scratches from the entire screen at once by simply pressing the iSRD and SRDx icons, which greatly improves the efficiency of the process. The accuracy is also excellent.

The dust and scratches are separated from the subject and removed as if they were sorted by the human eye. For example, it can remove thread dust, even if it is on a fine line pattern such as grass or trees. I was surprised at the accuracy of SilverFast, even though other software has the scratch/dust removal function. This function is also available as a plug-in for Photoshop (SRDx Plug-in). »

Multi-Exposure function:
« Even in cases where the image would have been blown out or blacked out in the past, SilverFast reproduces the image with rich tones.
The comparison picture on the right clearly shows how SilverFast’s reproducibility is high. It also reduces the noise that tends to occur in low-light areas, so you can digitize with peace of mind. »
