Scanning photos isn’t sexy anymore. We all have digital cameras — well, not exactly, but only die-hard art photographers will insist on the better grain and look of film. While the majority of photographers has gone digital, that doesn’t mean all those analogue images are suddenly worthless and should be thrown away. At least, some photos can still be used to illustrate web pages.
The Web output preset in the new SilverFast 8 allows users to choose the size of the resulting web image in one of the workflow steps. A user can preview what is meant by “small” or “medium” size in his/her browser by clicking a preview button, after which a default image appears in the selected size.
In a report on SilverFast 8, this was evaluated as a good idea and proof of a high level of attention to detail.
