In this mini video series, I go through some of the things I have learnt when using ColorPerfect to convert my black and white film negatives into a positive when scanned as a Linear RAW scan with VueScan.
For many years I have used either VueScan, Epson Scan and SilverFast and all three have given good results but I found that in order to get what I wanted, I had to work hard with the individual scanner software controls.
What I was looking for was some way to produce a scan without having to use the scanning software as an editor so I turned to ColorPerfect.
Why The Mini Video Series?
Although I am the first to admit that ColorPerfect does give me the results I am looking for, I have found that like most software there is a learning curve to getting the most from it and for some people this can be a daunting challenge.
The user interface at first glance looks complicated and some of the controls do not seem that intuitive but what I have learnt is that for dealing with black and white negatives, fortunately, we only need to familiar ourselves with just a few of them.
Having now gained an understanding of the the controls we need for black and white negative films, I have put a short video series together to demonstrate how I use VueScan to produce the Linear Raw Scan and then ColorPerfect to convert this negative into a positive digital Tiff file.
