KIEL, Germany — LaserSoft Imaging releases the new SilverFast 6.6.1, world-wide the first software generating perfect raw data from photos and slides. In order to generate perfect digital RAW data scanned from your originals, LaserSoft Imaging has developed a new 64 bit HDRi format for SilverFast 6.6.1 which not only contains complete image data but also has embedded the dust and scratch information from the scanner’s infrared channel. This new format is the best way to protect your precious memories against destruction, loss or fading!
The 64 bit HDRi file serves as a starting point for all further image editing steps – regardless when, where and how. Other approaches process dust and scratch removal during the scan process itself, without any possibility to control or influence the process afterwards.
In any case, this can lead to final loss of fine image details without the user ever noticing.
The new 64 bit HDRi format from LaserSoft Imaging contains the full dynamic range data of the original plus all image correction data in one file. HDRi surpasses the principle of “Non-Destructive-Editing” since the user can always optimize all corrections over again. Instead of driving the scanner directly, SilverFast HDRi enables the user to read and process raw data with maximum speed, so as if he would have direct access to his scanner.
