Subject: [Leica] Help with photo scanner and photo imaging software
From: achurak at (

I would like your advice on getting a hardware scanner for inputting
    medium format negatives and chromes into my PC.

    The negative / chrome size would be 6 x 6 cm and 6 x 7 cm. 
    I would like your thoughts on what photo imaging software
    to use also. 

    I am using existing Intel PCs' with available USB port support and 
    Microsoft OS of Windows 98 first edition and Windows 2000. 

    Do I have to be running Adobe Photoshop CS to use this hardware ?
    I am currently running IrfanView software to view and 
    adjust the existing photo CD's that I have.

    I have been looking at the scanners of Microtek 
    ( Scanmaker 6800, Scanmaker 6100 pro ), and Epson
    ( 4870 photo and Perfection 4870 pro ).

    I would be open to suggestions on other models available 
    in the $ 140 to $ 600 price range. 

    I would like to thank the LUG group in advance for there help.
