    Re: Ground glass questions

    The outer layer is just plastic. Sliding you eye loupe around scratches it fairly easily.

  28. Re: Different versions of Slide scanned on Howtek

    I am not sure about printing a book. I would see what the printer you are using wants. If doing yourself and everything already in srgb, adobergb may be better however, you would need to soft proof...
  29. Re: Comparison of HowtekHiResolve8000 scan and Epson V850 scan

    I typically work in Adobe rgb. If I am converting from scratch and do scan without profile assigned. Then convert adobergb. Sometimes srgb first then...

    I like the cms approach since it tells the scanner where...
