alaskadude Posted June 5, 2013 Share Posted June 5, 2013 I had 700 Digital images go through Alamy QC; No problems at all. Now I am practicing with my Nikon VED scanner. I am only practicing with my sharpest ASA 100 Fujichromes (Tripod, Mirror lock up, etc. good technique). I scan at 4000dpi. They come out 50+MB. No ICE, No sharpening, adobe RGB 1998. I scan at 14 Bit TIFF, but when I open them in PS Elements, it converts them to 8 bit TIFF before it is able to do any editing.(PSE does this automatically)..Then I clean up with the healing tool and set the levels. I will convert to JPG before I send my selects. But the thing is the slide scans are noticably softer than a Digital camera using similar technique. When I convert to JPGs, I can change all the names to "SlideScan.001.JPG, or something like that, so that Alamy will know they are scans. Does Alamy recognise that scans are a little softer and allow for that, take it into consideration? Will it help to put them on the 'pictures only' section of the forum to have them critiqued by other forum members? Can forum members see the image well enough to see the quality?
