NEW: NegaFix: significant improvement with CCR
The NegaFix tool has been extended by a new functionality:
The automatic color cast removal CCR.

The CCR extension is a tool for eliminating color casts. Even if SilverFast doesn't contain an exactly fitting profile for a special film type or if the original shows a slight color cast itself, this feature can produce a convincing result. Color casts are automatically removed during the negative to positive conversion simply by activating the CCR checkbox in the NegaFix dialog.
