Thanks for your nice comment on "Joseph and the Technicolor

I loaded Vuescan on my machine after I got your email, and
it looks good.  It does have a learning curve, that I don't
think I have the time to attack now, maybe next week when
the smoke clears.  My wife is in the play, so extra time is
short around our house right now.

I just loaded Nikonscan 3.1 which works within Photoshop,
however, it does limit you to an 8 bit environment.  I am
following the advice on
and converting to a 16 bit image before I do work on
Photoshop, and that seems to give me a little more umph in
handling the levels encountered in low light shooting.  I
was reading a thread I found about Vuescan, and I hope I can
make it work as well for me as others have.
