Very good note, certainly here a photo can tell a thousand words. I do like the earthy browns. Slides (which I prefer) do seem to be softer than digital shots. However I don't use my ICE function any more as it tends to blur and photoshop spot healing brush is excellant.

Default To sadeik: ICE blurring

Hi Simon,
I am not sure what you mean with ICE function... but indeed, I do not rely on any kind of automatic smoothing anymore.
I just scan the slides at 2800 dpi with my Konica Minolta scanner and use NeatImage to remove noise. The NeatImage function is based on training from homogeneous regions in the picture... and this is quite a good approach.
Afterwards, I allways use spot healing brush (cloning). It is time consuming but very effective.
I must say I have learned quite a lot from TE in improving my scans.
The result of this one for example was quite good to my opinion (as compared to the original)

ICE is a software function on the Nikon scanner it has a fine and normal setting BUT I find it makes the scans soft or blurry so as you said I used the spot healing brush now and yes it can be very time consuming but worth it on the good photos, other than that I use the fine setting on most of my normal scans.
