Every week we learn something new about the capabilities of the Creo scanner. When you have a scanner this good it is the software that counts.

Reviews of 35mm color slide scanners are ongoing at the FLAAR office

The software is what controls the hardware. Since the hardware is outstanding this offers lots of potential for the software to archive superior scans. Rarely are your slides perfect. Some are under exposed, others are overexposed. The idea is to correct the images in the scanner software.

The worst thing to do is to blinkly scan and then attempt to correct your mistakes in Photoshop later. If your scan itself is well done you should not have to use Photoshop whatsoever. In fact you should print directly from your scanned slide with no movements in Photoshop at all.

If you have to use Photoshop to correct a color cast or exposure then you are doing something wrong in the original scan.

I have used Binuscan, LinoColor, SilverFast, Umax Magicscan and others. The Creo scanner software is by far the best and easiest for me to figure out how to use it. Binuscan never impressed me. LinoColor has the prestige and name of Heidelberg behind it but requires that you do everything for prepress. What if you just need to scan to preserve the images in digital format (since the color of your original slide is fading)?

For the intermediate user SilverFast is probably the best choice, but it does not work on high-end scanners such as the Creo (not a large enough market and because anyone who already owns a CreoScitex scanner is already satisfied with their own special Creo scanner software.

After you scan, how and where do you store all your digital images? How has the Digital Imaging Technology Center solved this dilemma? Perhaps our experience in digital image storage can help you with an easy way to store digitized slides and digital photographs.

This storage comes in three convenient sizes to suit your needs.
