I have a posibility to have scanned my 4x5 negatives with Imacon 848. First batch arrived already. While the dynamic range and sharpness is much beter than with a flatbed scanner (drum scanning at a price of 200 euro is beyond my possibilities) I do notice rather high noise in the scans.
I am about to get the Picture Cooloer which is rather cheap and produces a reasonable clean-up of the image.
The question is:
Should I first adjust the picture in the PS and in the end use the PictureCooler, or vice versa?
Let me mention that I do decrease the size of the original scan as it has ~ 200 MB (~70 Mpix) to ~ 60 MB for the final print (~ 10 x 14 '').
