Up until now I have been scanning covers using a specific preset – magazine, which gives a dark, rich matte result which looks nice. I now think this may be producing too much of a dull image. I noticed it on the Azure Bonds cover when I scanned it using both the magazine preset and the standard color photo preset – this is using the superb VueScan scanning software. There are elements I like about both presets, but I just cannot decide on any one right now. So I will leave it up to vote. The magazine scan is on the left and the color photo scan on the right, click for a larger version in a new window.
