Ive been rather busy since I started doing wetplate and wanted to scan and archive before varnishing, I have had huge interest from everyone on enlargements, platinum prints and so on.
I figure since most interested wouldnt know the difference between Platinum prints and photoshopped printed and I really dont want to charge most of these folks I can get out on the cheap and save the platinum for the really good shots and people who would appreciate the labor.
I bought a cheesy epson v500 scanner for $175 and scanned some glass last night, Im really confused as to why it only allows (forces me) to scan at 1200 dpi, is there an adjustment Im missing to fix this? I'm also scanning 8"x10"s thats all I took since I have a Century grand studio and the 8x10s really pop when on glass.
It came with PS elements which I just pulled the scans in there and inverted, I know I should read up on PS since I havent used it in probably 6-7 years but is there a setting that will adjust the whites to the silvery bronze look of the silver nitrate on glass? This type of thing I can probably figure out but should I be scanning these in JPEG, TIFF etc and what should I put my settings to in PS. Any help would be appreciated!
