I tend to shoot color negative and scan into my computer to make everything digital. One problem I've always had was in the color correction phase, I could never get things to either pop the way I like or simply get accurate colors. I recently came across PictoColor's inCamera v4, a plug-in for Photoshop that corrects color based on shooting a sample shot of the GretagMacbeth ColorChecker.
Well, a few of you may say this has been around for a while, big deal. Well, every time I was using this plug-in, my images were really flat looking and even with a bunch of Photoshop work, I was still having problems getting images to look good. Then along came Adobe Lightroom, which I've been toying around with for my digital files. If you import the TIFF files from the scanned images, LR can tweak the image the same way it works on RAW files, giving you control over white balance, fill light, and hue/sat/lum in ways that don't end up in posterization (which was happening when I was using straight Photoshop).
Anyone else try this out? It's been working great for me.
