SilverFast 8 - Multiple Densitometer


Densitometers are devices for the quantitative measurement of color density and optical density of printed originals and particularly important in photographic technique to measure the density in negatives, slides and photographs. Unlike a spectrophotometer a densitometer can only measure tonal values, no hue. Analogously, the densitometer in SilverFast 8 is a software tool to control gray and color values ​​in an original. The densitometer allows to understand changes to tonal values made by SilverFast's image optimization features for each individual pixel.

The densitometer in SilverFast SE 8 and SE Plus 8
On the left side of the SilverFast 8 densitometer dialog, the unmodified tones of the preview scan are shown. The right side shows the tonal values​​, which would result in the scanned image with the actual image optimizations.
  • Display of tones and luminance for each pixel
  • Display of black point and white point
