Holy hell, SilverFast 8 (Mac) is buggy as hell. Finally decided that "free" wasn't worth the trouble, even if it's a pro-level package. VueScan is SO MUCH BETTER it's actually kind of infuriating, since it means I've wasted all this time scanning with SilverFast.
Color accuracy? In my TIFFs? It's more likely then you think.
This means I must now redo my scans, and my photos in Aperture. Oh well, since I didn't get too far, shouldn't be a big problem...
One of the big selling points of SilverFast is the ease of color-calibration. Well, it's not that hard in VueScan: obtain an IT8 target ($50 for really good ones), get the target file, scan, draw a box around the target, press calibrate. Easy. SilverFast sells bar-coded targets that makes it fully automatic, but really? How often must we calibrate a scanner? Once every 6 months, at the most?
Not worth the all-around shiftiness of SilverFast.
