SilverFast HDR Studio - For those who like to be creative and productive with
LaserSoft Imaging is proud to present SilverFast HDR Studio. This is an enhanced version of SilverFast HDR with new features, that make the processing of your digital images much more easier and convenient:
Many of today's scanners allow the ability to write the full dynamic range of its hardware into TIFF-data. This makes the reduction to 24 bit RGB obsolete. The ability to save these 'raw' files opens up a whole new workflow.
The images can be scanned and archived into digital format, and then opened at a later datewithout any loss quality. In order to save such data with extended dynamic range, the 48 bit TIFF format has been defined. Scanners with only 30 or 36 bit capability supply into this format their maximum output.
Regardless of the effective dynamic range supplied, the file will always becomes a 48 bit file. Normal scan software saves images into a 24 bit file, discarding the extra information supplied from the scanner. 48 bit files retain all of the information supplied.
Instead of driving the scanner directly, SilverFast HDR enables the user to readthese raw files and process the data as if he had access to the original image on the scanner. All SilverFast tools are fully applicable: Defining output size, Auto-Adjust, Histogram, Gradation curves, Selective Color Correction, Unscharp Masking, Color Separation, CMYK-Preview....
1. A samplecan be scanned and given back to the customer immediately.
2. Final output processing is not required at this time, the image only has to be saved.
3. Precious samples can be scanned without any loss in quality.
4. The raw scan can be performed by any person (without any knowledge of scanning) it is only required that the user set the scan resolution.
5. Since the raw scan is now saved in HDR format, it can be transmitted over theinternet in this raw form, opening up new dimensions for work flow!
SilverFast PhotoProof is an optional feature of SilverFast DCPro Studio and SilverFast HDR Studio - software specifically designed to work on images from digital cameras.
The image optimization is processed in a media-neutral workflow, based on the RGB color model, while using the well-known tools of SilverFast DC Pro Studio and HDR Studio. When activating SilverFast PhotoProof, the user will immediately see a CMYK simulation of the image by means of RGB softproofing on the calibrated monitor.
The Photographer is able to create a color-true contact proof on any suitable, calibrated output device by using the advanced print dialog PrinTao in SilverFast. The user just has to choose the ICC- profile for the printer and the FOGRA media wedge to be embedded.Embedding a media wedge is used as a reference for a true-to-color proof. By using SilverFast PhotoProof, the image data does not need to be converted to CMYK.
