Flecther, Unlike many young thinking people today, not everything "old school" is bad or wrong. However, please help me understand what you mean by your statement, "while the data is in its analog state". Other than exposure and focus, how are any image elements edited before they are converted to bits? Unless there are some manipulations that I am unaware of (which is entirely possible), the scanner software peforms its operations after the scan. Mind you, it my seem like tey're being performed during the scan, but what happens is the scanner scans some data, manipulations are performed, then it scans some more, the new data is manipulated, then again, and agian, until the entire frame is scanned. ===== Visit my digital photography web site along with a lot of other interesting stuff at http://greer.simplenet.com.
