  • Rejected shot from a scanned slide ?

    Goodday,

    I have just restarted scanning some of my slides shots, i edited them in PS2 more or less using the same process as my digital shots.

    My query is

    Are there other things to consider when editing shots from slide film ?

    This shot was rejected recently:-

    Any pointers would be greatly received ?

    Brgds
    Macca.

    IMO there seems to be a slight shadow/highlight around the aircraft.

    Try to re-edit the photo by removing a small amount of cyan (Red) under "Colour balance"

      When I work on slide scans, I spend more time on contrast and color corrections, than on DSLR-pics. Other difference is the sharpening, but I don't remember my settings anymore.

          Hi Macca,

          Tim's edit is a lot better. The problem I see is that there are 77 photos of this aircraft already in the DB most of them of higher quality. I assume the scanned shot is only 2-3 yrs old, I would say it is going to have to be of high quality to make it in. If it was in old colours and from several years ago it would have a better chance.

            Martin, the first thing that I do when a scanned slide come out of the copier is set the colour using levels, individually adjusting the RGB, setting the black and white points for each colour.

              Just a quick info reminder, the registration is not A40 (ay-four-zero). The correct format is A4O (ay-four-ohh).

              Cheers.

                All noted with thanks, think what i will do is dig out some 'older/rare slides' from my collection rather than this example that i came across in my office !

                AJ thanks for that, wondered why i was having trouble with the 'autofill' function !

                BRegards.
