Another brain-picking session needed, this time with Scanning from 35mm in mind.
I have a Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III 35mm scanner, and have scanned numerous slides, b&w and colour negs. Some come out really well, and others, particularly those with high colour saturation, seem to come out really "grainy".
Its odd, even with pictures taken with the same film speed, that I can't seem to get enough consitency. Skies can come out looking really noisy. Given a conventional print at about the same size, (A4), my digital scans/prints often look much more grainy/noisy, so it can't all be to do with film grain?
I've tried playing about with PixelPolish, which comes with the scanning software, but again not had much consistency in results. This is a great shame as I'd love to make more digital prints out of some of my older back-catalogue.
Does anyone have much experience of this sort of problem and what they have done to overcome them?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
