The Job Manager is a valuable SilverFast tool* for efficient batch processing. In this case, batch processing means multiple scan frames are scanned automatically in sequence; a useful functionality, when multiple photos, slides or negatives are placed on a scanner's flatbed.
- Automatically scanning multiple scan frames
- Copy tool adjustments to other scan frames
- Save, load and modify frame sets
- Automatically batch process a multitude of RAW data scans
The JobManager in SilverFast Ai Studio 8
Using scanner software SilverFast Ai Studio 8, the JobManager functionality allows to scan multiple images automatically from a scanner's flatbed or slide feeder. Therefore, an individual scan frame is created for each image, corresponding to a job in the JobManager. For later image optimization and processing RAW data scans are archived on the hard disk using DNG or SilverFast's own HDR(i) format. This is a quick and efficient task. Alternatively, the images can also be optimized right away with the scanning. Again, the JobManager is a good help, tool adjustments for image optimization can be copied to other images.
The JobManager in SilverFast HDR and HDR Studio 8
As part of the SilverFast archiving workflow, the JobManager is also useful for the HDR image processing. Scanner RAW data files, which have been archived with SilverFast, are easily loaded to the Virtual Light Table VLT of SilverFast HDR (Studio) 8 image processing software. Selected images are moved to the JobManager, tools for image optimization are set and optionally copied to a multitude of images. Finally, the JobManager executes every single job in sequence.
* Note: The JobManager functionality is included with SilverFast Ai Studio 8, SilverFast HDR 8 and SilverFast HDR Studio 8.
