Dual Scan IV



New to scanning and am trying to work out the best way to get results scanning slide film. Can anybody tell me the best settings and software to use with the new dual scan. I want to be able to get the best print size/quality and use for archive.

Currently tried the dual scan s/w at 16bit with grain dissolver on around medium and IS) level 100. Tried Vuescan but not sure on the best settings seems to do something weird to the colour on some images?

Thanks for your assistance.

Make sure you have the latest driver and plug-in... DiMAGE Scan Utility version 1.1.3 It's located on the Minolta site buried in digital cameras I think.

Turn off the grain dissolver. Don't sharpen at all in the scan stage.
