Step 3 - Setting the CMS dialog

As with SilverFast Ai we find that depending upon our chosen workflow we need to configure the CMS dialog differently.

User Group 1 Default CMS Settings

The following screenshot shows the required CMS setup when the image was scanned with no profile embedded. Using this method SilverFast HDR will be handling ALL colour management using either a SilverFast IT-8 calibration profile or a custom created scanner profile.

Colour Management

  • Input - > Internal - should be set to ColorSync/ICM

  • Internal  - > Monitor - should be set to Automatic.

  • Internal  - > Output - should be set to RGB.

Profiles for ColorSync/ICM

  • Input is set to your scanner profile.

  • Internal - should be set for "your" preferred Photoshop workspace, e.g. Adobe RGB (1998), ColorMatch, etc.

  • Gray - Not Important

  • Output/Printer - will be greyed out and therefore cannot be changed.

  • Rendering Intent - ideally leave at Perceptual or Relative Colorimetric

Embedded ICC Profile

  • Embed ICC Profile - this should be checked.

  • Profile to embed will read as your selection for Photoshop, here we see my choice of Adobe RGB (1998).

 

User Group 2 Default CMS Settings

The following screenshot shows the required CMS setup when the image was scanned with either the Photoshop working space or a scanner profile embedded. Using this method SilverFast HDR will utilise the embedded profile to ensure that the raw image is correctly rendered in the Preview window.

Colour Management

  • Input - > Internal - should be set to Use Embedded Profile

  • Internal  - > Monitor - should be set to Automatic.

  • Internal  - > Output - should be set to RGB.

Profiles for ColorSync/ICM

  • Input - will be greyed out and therefore cannot be easily changed. It need not be set for anything other than the default None since the profile embedded in the image tells SilverFast all that it needs to know about the image source.

  • Internal - should be set for "your" preferred Photoshop workspace, e.g. Adobe RGB (1998), ColorMatch, etc.

  • Gray - Not Important

  • Output/Printer - will be greyed out and therefore cannot be changed.

  • Rendering Intent - ideally leave at Perceptual or Relative Colorimetric

Embedded ICC Profile

  • Embedded Profile - this will be the profile that was embedded into the original scanned image

  • Embed ICC Profile - this should be checked.

  • Profile to embed will read as your selection for Photoshop, here we see my choice of Adobe RGB (1998).

 

Step 4 - Opening the "raw" scan

We're nearly home; the final stages of getting our "raw" high-bit scan into HDR are only a few mouse clicks away.

  • Select Open and then navigate to the folder were you stored the scanned image. Once the image opens you will find that it may need to be rotated, flipped, etc.
