Question about ACI Pacific Image Prime Film PF3650 Pro Film Scanner

1 Answer

All the slides scanned are darker than the original

When I scan slides into Photoshop they are darker than the original and have a red hue. I wonder whether the lamp is misfunctioning - can it be replaced? How do you use the calibrate lamp function on the PF3600 screen?

Black and white photos from many years ago now have a blue-green hue on them when they are scanned. it started after I scanned old slides.


Did you make changes to the scan type when you scanned the slides? It sounds like you have the scanner set to do a negative image as a slide would need.
Check the preferences for the scan type.
The scanning manual is available on Canon's Website.

Color restoration on ektrachrome slides


For individuals such as yourself, I recommend Adobe Photoshop Elements. Some of the scanners have built-in color correction tools. However, it's often better to make an uncorrected scan and correct in Photoshop or another editing program. Essentially you need to remove minor color casts to make the slides representation accurate to the original subject.

Scans slides too dark.


maybe the slides are too dark, in other words, the pictures you took didn't have enough exposure therefore you it shows up dark.. You could always use photoshop or someother photo manipulation software to lighten the scan, same thing happens with my hp scanner with slide adapter, if it slides just show up dark, lightening it with software will help, unless it is unsaturated/shadows too dark, etc..

Hope this helps.

Scanning slides into computer


From Lexmark's website:
To scan negatives, slides, and transparencies, you need to place the original between the light source and the sensor array so that the light passes through them before hitting the sensor. However, Lexmark scanners place the light source and the sensor array on the same side in order to catch the light as it reflects off the original. Accordingly, in order to scan originals of this type, you need a transparency adapter (also called a TPA or TPU), which is a back light that replaces the scanner cover.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
