hello all, i've a question that has been bugging me for years, i work in the graphic arts and design and produce illustrated books for museums and such likes. i got interested in photography thanks to this work, but i must say that the best (digital) colour correctors i have come across here in spain are not the people i've found in labs – digital pretty new there – but the people who work in the photomecanical separators, repro houses. infact there are a few photographers in spain like my self who produce there work in a repro house rather than a lab for that reason.
which brings me to my question: the repro house that i work with have 2 very high end drumscanners, a hell chromograph s3010 and an s3900, we can work round slides and b/w negs but the thing is they are unable to get any decent software for scanning and converting colour negs, which is really frustrating because, on paper at least, these scanners blow most of the competition away.
i'd really appreciate any ideas or pointers as to who i could approach or what to do about this situation.
thanks to all.
