Loading film holders
Handling film
To achieve the best possible reproduction from the scanner, the film and film holder should be
free from dust and dirt. Always work with processed film in a clean, dust-free environment.
Handle film by the edges or mount to prevent fingerprints and dirt marring the image area.
Special lint-free gloves are available from photographic equipment retailers for film handling as
well as anti-static cloths, brushes, and blowers for removing dust. Film cleaner can be used to
remove oil, grease, or dirt from film; carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions and precautions for the film cleaning solvent.
Place the slides in the holder emulsion side
down. The slide must be parallel with the
length of the holder otherwise the top and
bottom of the image area will be cropped.
Carefully lower the cover until both latches
click into place.
When the slide mount holder is in the scanner, the last slide can be
removed and a new slide inserted without ejecting the holder. When
replacing slide, take care not to change the holder position. If the slide
is not accessible, press the eject button once to move the slide holder
to the correct position; pressing the eject button twice ejects the holder.
A prescan should be made each time a slide is inserted; see page 29.
Where is the emulsion?
When film placing film in a holder, the emulsion side of the film should be down. When viewing
the film image, if the image is orientated correctly rather than a mirror image, the emulsion side
is facing down. If the image is abstract or symmetrical so its orientation is difficult to determine,
the emulsion is down if the frame numbers and edge markings can be read correctly. With
mounted slides, the emulsion is on the same side of the mount as the film manufacturer's or
processor’s name is printed.
Loading 35mm film strips
Film strips of up to six frames can be
loaded into the 35mm film holder. To open
the holder, lift the latch and swing open the
cover.
Emulsion

Loading and ejecting a film holder
Before using the scanner, install the DiMAGE Scan Utility. Launch one of the DiMAGE Scan Utility
drivers before inserting the film holder. Do not insert the film holder into the scanner while the
utility software is launching or the scanner is initializing; the indicator lamp blinks during this period.
Orientation indicator
With the emulsion down, place the film in
the holder and under the retaining tabs.
Align the film with the frame apertures.
Carefully lower the cover until the latch
clicks into place. Take care not to move the
film during this operation.
Loading mounted slides
Up to four mounted slides can be inserted into the slide mount holder. The slide mounts must be
between 1 mm and 3,2 mm thick to fit the holder. Glass mounts cannot be used; the glass
refracts the light resulting in distorted and unevenly illuminated scans.
To open the holder, lift both latches and
swing open the cover.
18
Loading film holders
When the indicator lamp glows steadily, insert
the film holder into the scanner in the direction indicated by the arrow. Hold the holder
straight and level with the orientation indicator
up.
Insertion mark
Carefully push the holder into the scanner until the insertion mark
is aligned with the scanner door; the holder is automatically fed
into the scanner from that point and an index scan begins. Never
touch or hinder the holder when it is in the scanner.
Click the eject button in the DiMAGE Scan Utility window or press
the eject button on the scanner to remove the holder; the scanner
automatically ejects the holder to its initial insertion position.
When using the slide holder, the eject button may have to be
pressed twice. If the scanner is turned off before the holder is
ejected, turn on the scanner; the holder is ejected automatically.

Black and white chromegenic films that are designed to be developed in a C-41 or equivalent
color process, Kodak T-400CN or Ilford XP2 Super, can be processed with the Digtal ICE,
ROC, GEM, and SHO functions. These films should be scanned with the film type set to color
negative (p. 28). Set the saturation level in the hue, saturation and lightness palette to -100 to
remove the color (p. 63). The scanned data can be convertered to grayscale with an imageprocessing application to reduce file size and eliminate the color channels. Results cannot be
guarantied with other types of black and white film.

Pixel Polish
Variation palette
Pixel Polish makes automatic or custom image corrections. See page 11 for memory requirements. Pixel Polish cannot be used with black and white film, 16-bit or 16-bit linear color depth
(p. 40). Scanning time increases. The effect of Pixel Polish is based on the prescan image area. If
the image is cropped after applying Pixel Polish, click the crop-prescan button (p. 31) to view the
results.
The variation palette allows an image to be corrected by comparing it to other slightly corrected
images surrounding it. This is an easy method to correct images for individuals who are inexperienced in image processing or photofinishing.
Click the Pixel Polish button in the main window to automatically correct the images in the
film holder; previous corrections are canceled.

Brightness, contrast, and color balance palette
An introduction to color
In photography, red, green, and blue are the
primary colors. The secondary colors, cyan,
magenta, and yellow, are made from combining the primary colors: cyan = blue + green,
magenta = blue + red, and yellow = red +
green. The primary and secondary colors are
grouped in complementary pairs: red and
cyan, green and magenta, and blue and yellow.
Click the brightness, contrast, color-balance button in the
image-correction tab to display the palette.
Drag the brightness, contrast, or color sliders, or enter specific
values in the corresponding text box to make corrections.
Dragging each slider to the right or inputting a positive number
in the text box increases the brightness, contrast, and color.
Changes are reflected in the displayed image and in the graph
at the top of the palette. The horizontal axis of the chart indicates the original image values and the vertical axis the new
values.
MAGENTA
BLUE
YELLOW
GREEN
Knowing the complementary colors is very
important in color balancing. If the image has
CYAN
a specific color cast, either subtracting the
color or adding its complementary color creates a natural looking image. For example, if the
image is too red, decrease the amount of red; if it is too yellow, increase the amount of blue.
Clicking the auto-setting button corrects the brightness and
contrast automatically without affecting the color balance. Click
the reset button to cancel all changes. Click the close button to
close the palette and apply any changes.
Adding or subtracting equal parts of red, green, and blue has no affect on the color balance.
However, it can change the overall image brightness and contrast. Usually, no more than two
color channels are needed to color balance an image.
Close button
Is this picture too light? Adjusting brightness and contrast can
be more difficult than it looks. The image on the right looks too
bright, especially the mountains in the background.
RED
Color balancing is a skill that develops with practice. While the human eye is extremely sensitive
in making comparative judgements, it is a poor tool when making absolute measurements of
color. Initially, it can be very difficult to distinguish between blue and cyan, and red and magenta.
However, adjusting the wrong color channel never improves an image; subtracting blue from an
image that is too cyan gives a green cast to the image.
Undoing and redoing image corrections
Simply making everything darker with the brightness controls
creates a muddy image - the snow and sky are a dull gray and
there are no strong blacks.
The undo, redo, and reset-all buttons only affect tools used in the image-correction tab.
By adding contrast to the image, the snow is brightened while
the darker trees are accentuated. The extra contrast also gives
the image the appearance of being sharper as well as revealing
fine details.
Click the undo button to cancel the last image correction applied to the image.
The number of image corrections that can be undone depends on the computer
memory capacity.
Click the redo button to reapply the last image correction canceled with the undo
button.
Click the reset-all button to cancel all image corrections applied in the image-correction tab.

Advanced scanning
This section covers the advanced scanning tools in the DiMAGE Scan Utility. The basic scanning
section on pages 26 through 33 should be read before continuing.
Setting scanner preferences
Click the preferences button in the main window to open the preferences dialog box.
Select preferences options to customize scanner operations.
Exposure control for negatives: autoexposure adjusts the scan to compensate for the
density of the negative. The manual setting
uses a fixed exposure regardless of the density
of the film. Manual exposure can show the
exposure difference in a bracket series. When
using AE lock or AE area selection with negatives (p. 45), the auto function must be selected.
Auto expose for slides: to use autoexposure
when scanning slides. Since the density range
of slides is relatively uniform, adjusting the
exposure for each slide is usually unnecessary.
However, when scanning an underexposed or
overexposed slide, the autoexposure system
can compensate for the unusual image density.
When using AE lock or AE area selection with
slide film (p. 45), the auto-expose-for-slide box
must be checked.
Close utility after scanning: this option closes the DiMAGE Scan Utility after the final scan
when using the scanner with an image-processing application. Activate this function when individual images will be scanned and then processed or retouched in another application. Uncheck
the box when multiple images need to be scanned before retouching.
Color depth: this option specifies the color depth of the scanned image between 8 bit, 16 bit,
and 16-bit linear for each RGB channel. Because 16-bit linear color depth does not make any
gamma corrections, the scan of a negative produces a negative image. 16-bit and 16-bit linear
images can only be saved in the TIFF file format. Some imageprocessing application cannot
open 16-bit image files such as Adobe Phototshop Elements 2.0.
Multi-sample scan: multi-sample scans reduce random noise in the image by analyzing the data
of each sample scan; 2, 4, 8, and 16 samples can be made. The more samples taken, the less
random noise in the image and the longer the scanning time.
Prescan size: to change the size of the prescan image.
Color matching: to specify the output color space and monitor ICC profile. For detailed information, see the color matching section on page 65.
OK button: to apply the preference settings and close the window.
Cancel button: to cancel any settings made and close the window.
Help button: to open the help window.
Scanner Notes
Manual Focus Dial: to use the manual-focus
dial on the scanner unit. The appearance of the
manual-focus button in the prescan tab
changes when active. For more on manual focus, see page 44. If selected, autofocus and point AF cannot be used.
Autofocus at scan: this option activates the autofocus function during the prescan and final scan. When using Digital ICE, ROC, and GEM, the use of autofocus
is recommended. The autofocus function increases the scanning time.
Prescan after point AF: the scanner automatically makes a prescan after the focus point is
specified with point AF. See page 44 for more on point AF.
When the autofocus-at-scan option is selected in the preferences window, the autofocus system uses the center of image to determine focus. This normally results in an excellent scan
when the film plane is flat. However, if the film is warped or curled, the scanner can be
focused using point AF or manual focus (p. 44).
Active preferences used in scanning are shown in the prescan tab. The preference display is
below the scan setting pane.
The use of autofocus, manual focus dial, autoexposure, color
depth, multi-sample scanning, and color matching is indicated.
Color matching is indicated by the color space or monitor color
profile.
Index scan at loading: the scanner automatically makes an index scan each time a film holder
is inserted into the scanner.

The histogram indicates the distribution of pixels with specific brightness and color values in
the displayed image. The histogram can maximize the output of the image data. Changes
made with the histogram are also displayed on
the tone curve.
57
The highlight level, shadow level, and gamma
are set with the sliders under the histogram.
These levels are displayed numerically in the
text boxes to the right of the sliders and can
be changed with the keyboard.

This is a simple technique to make an image
brighter.
With the RGB channel selected, place the
smooth-curve cursor on the center of the
curve. Click and drag the curve up. Look at the
displayed image to judge the result. The
adjustment can be very small and still have a
significant impact on the image. Moving the
tone curve down makes the image darker.
Gamma defines the mid-tones of the image.
The input highlight slider sets the white level.
All pixels to the right of the slider are set to 255
and any image detail they may contain is lost.
The input shadow slider sets the black level. All
pixels to the left of the slider are set to 0 and
any image detail they may contain is lost.
The output levels can be adjusted. By moving
the output highlight and shadow sliders, the
contrast of the image can be reduced.

Increasing contrast
The contrast of an image can be changed. The
45° line on the tone-curve graph represents the
original contrast of the image. Making the
angle of the tone curve greater than 45°
increases the contrast. Making the angle less
than 45° reduces contrast.
Click the color-histogram button to view the
red, green, and blue histograms. Click the button again to hide the display.
With the RGB channel selected, click on the
tone curve near the top and bottom to add two
nodes. Slightly move the top node up and the
bottom node down. This increases the angle
of the central portion of the tone curve and
increase the contrast of the image without
making an overall change in image brightness.
Tone-curve processing guide
The tone curve is a graphic representation of
the brightness and color levels of the image.
The bottom axis is the 256 levels of the original
image (input data) from black to white. The vertical axis is the corrected image (output data)
with the same scale from top to bottom.
Output
The bottom left portion of the graph represents
the dark colors and shadow areas of the
image. The middle section represents the midtones: skin, grass, blue sky. The top right section is the highlights: clouds, lights. Changing
the tone curve can affect the brightness, contrast, and color of the image.
Highlights
Mid-tones
Shadows
Correcting color
By selecting individual color channels on the
tone curve, adjustments to the overall color of
an image can be made. If the image is too red,
green, or blue, simply drag the corresponding
color-channel curve down until the color
appears natural. If the color cast is predominantly one of the secondary colors, cyan,
magenta, or yellow, move the curve of the
complementary color up.
For example, if the image is too cyan, move
the red curve up.
For more on color, see page 39.

Histogram processing guide
White, black, & gray-point processing
This guide shows simple corrections that can
be made with a histogram. Unlike the tone
curve, the histogram provides information on a
specific image. This can used to evaluate the
image and make adjustments accordingly.
On the tone-curve and histogram palette, corrections can be made by specifying a white,
black, and gray point within the image. When a
dropper tool is placed over the image, the RGB
display and tone curve show the value of that
point. All changes are reflected in the displayed
image.
The pixel distribution in the histogram shows
the entire tonal range of the image is not used.
There is an absence pixels in the shadows and
highlights.
Click the white-point button; the mouse pointer
changes to the white dropper tool.
By moving the shadow slider to the right and
the highlight slider to the left to set the black
and white levels to where the pixel distribution
begins, image contrast is improved.
With the dropper tool, click on the brightest
neutral area of the image to define it as the
white point. The values of the image are
adjusted based on the selected point. The
default level for the white point is 255 for each
RGB channel.
Click the black-point button.
The gamma slider can be used to change the relative distribution of the tones in the image. By
moving the gamma slider to the left toward the shadows, the image becomes lighter. By moving
the gamma slider in the opposite direction, the image becomes darker.
With the dropper tool, click on the darkest neutral area of the image to define it as the black
point. The values of the image are adjusted
based on the selected point. The default level
for the black point is 0 for each RGB channel.
Click the gray-point button. The gray point
controls the color of the image.
With the dropper tool, click a neutral area of
the image to be defined as the gray point. The
area used to calibrate the gray point must be
neutral. The brightness level of the area is not
important, but if the area has a definite color,
the color is not balanced correctly.
Click and hold the apply button to show the
change on the histogram. To change the white
and black point values, see the following section.
Click the reset button to cancel the processing.

White and black-point setup
Hue, saturation, and lightness palette
The white and black-point values are set to 255 and 0 for each RGB level. Changing these values allow the calibration of an image with no true white or black.
This palette adjusts the image in reference to the HSB color model. The HSB color model
defines color based upon human perception rather than photographic processes.
Click the point-value button in the tone curve
and histogram palette.
Click the hue, saturation, and lightness button
in the image-correction tab to open the palette.
Enter the new white-point or black-point values. Click OK.
With the point-value-setting dialog box open,
the RGB display is active and shows the value
of any point in the image when the cursor is
placed over it.
Calibrate the image as described in the white,
black, and gray point corrections section.
Drag the hue, saturation, or lightness slider, or
enter specific values in the corresponding text
box to make corrections; changes are reflected
in the display image. The hue slider rotates the
colors in the image through the color space;
the maximum position to the right (180°) is the
same as the maximum position to the left
(–180°). Click the reset button to cancel any
changes.
Two color samples are displayed at the bottom
of the palette. The top bar indicates the color
space of the original image. The bottom bar
displays the relative shift to the color space.
Original color space
New color space
Selective-color palette
Selective-color correction is an advanced technique to refine the colors in the image. A cyan,
magenta, yellow, and black channel can be used to adjust the six separate color groups in the
image: red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, and yellow. The black-level slider controls the brightness
of the selected color group.This type of correction is effective in changing a specific color without influencing any of the other colors in the image. For example, if the sky looks purplish
instead of blue, magenta can be reduced in the blue color group.
Click the selective-color button in the imagecorrection tab to open the palette.
Select the color group to be corrected from the
list box at the top of the palette.
Drag a slider or enter a value in a text box to
adjust the selected color group. More than one
slider can be used to adjust the selected color.
Changes are reflected in the display image.
Click the reset button to cancel any changes.
62
Advanced image processing
The auto-setting button adjusts the saturation automatically without affecting the hue or lightness. Click the reset button to cancel any changes.
Scanner Notes
The hue control is not a color balancing tool. When changing hue, each color is assigned a
new hue depending on the degree of rotation through the color space. For example, a very
simple color space could have three colors: red, green, and blue. There is a red barn next to
a green tree with a blue sky. Now rotate the image in the color space; the colors are reassigned a new hue based on the position - the barn is green, the tree is blue, and the sky is
red. The HSB color space is similar, but with many more hues;
Unlike the brightness control in the brightness, contrast, color balance palette, the lightness
control does not change the apparent density of the colors equally. For example, with an
extreme increase in lightness, blue does not appear as light as yellow.
