HOW TO SCAN SLIDES
STEP 1 – Acquire Driver
ENGLISH
(For PC User)
Open CyberView from Start – All Programs –CyberView
(For MAC User)
Open Macintosh Hard drive – Applications –CyberView
STEP 2 – Select Film Type
Select the film type to be scanned - Positive, Negative or B&W (Black and White).
STEP 3 – Optional Prescan
Select the “Prescan Current Frame“ to prescan the slide currently loaded into the
scanner or “Prescan All..“ to prescan an entire negative strip
Pre-Scanning should be used to manually adjust color/edit settings for each slide
before doing the final scan. It’s possible to set different settings for each slide to
be scanned.
STEP 4 – Set Scan Settings
a. Resolution
The default scanning resolution is 1000dpi, additional resolution options
are listed below.
11
Set Scan Settings (Continued...)
Notice: Higher scanning resolutions result in greater scanning time and hardisk space
requirements.
ENGLISH
b. Color Depth
Choose between 8 and 16bit. A higher color depth setting will result in a
larger range of colors in the final scanned image.
The Film Scanner color depth is 48 bit true color. The scanning software has the
capability of selecting 8 bit color mode or 16 bit color mode when scanning, This
will produce 24 or 48 bit color images, 8 bits or 16 bits per Red, Green and Blue
color channels.
Example:
8 bit mode = 8 Red, 8 Green, and 8 Blue for a total of 24 bit color
16 bit mode = 16 Red, 16 Green, and 16 Blue for a total of 48 bit color
NOTE: Make sure there is enough space available
on the computer when changing the Scanning
Resolution. A high scanning resolution results in
large files that may prove difficult to save.
