Scanning Specifications (Raphael Project)
These are the scanning specifications that where used during the Raphael Research Project.
|35mm slides||600%||300dpi||Colour RGB||8-bit tiff|
|120 (6x6 cm) transparencies||350%||300dpi||Colour RGB||8-bit tiff|
|5x4 inch transparencies||400%||300dpi||Colour RGB||8-bit tiff|
|10x8 inch transparencies||200%||300dpi||Colour RGB||8-bit tiff|
|10x8 inch monochrome negatives||200%||300dpi||B & W||8-bit tiff|
|12x10 inch monochrome negatives||200%||300dpi||B & W||8-bit tiff|
|x-ray plates||100%||600dpi||B & W||16-bit tiff|
NOTE: Better results for scanning negatives have been achieved by scanning them as positives in Colour RGB 16 bit, and by modifying them with photoshop as follows:
- Image -> Mode -> Grayscale.
- Image -> Adjustments -> Invert.
- Image -> Adjustments -> Curves.
