SilverFast 8 – Rediscover Black and White Images!

Effortlessly create brilliant Grayscale Images. Our SC2G Movie tells you how.

Using the tool SC2G (Selective Color to Gray), which is included in every SilverFast 8 scanner and HDR software, you can directly control the conversion of primary and secondary colors into shades of gray. A conventional color to black and white image conversion transfers different colors (e.g. red and blue) of similar brightness in very similar shades of gray. As a result, they can be hardly differentiated. With SC2G you have some slider controls to determine, to which gray tones your colors get converted. Thus, a lot more image details remain recognizable and your black and white images look clear and crisp.

Original Photo Using Standard Conversion Using SC2G (Blue -148)

Image Example: The sky appears too dark with the standard color to gray conversion. Using SC2G the sky can be selectively made brighter, without changing the brightness of other objects of the sample. After changing into Grayscale mode and activating the SC2G tool, click into the sky of the sample. Now we want to make the gray representing the sky brighter by using the marked slider control in the SC2G dialog.
