The SilverFast Archive Suite 8.5
Made in Germany The SilverFast Archive Suite 8.5 is a comprehensive archiving solution for digitizing your images fast and easy. In terms of quality, SilverFast surpasses the results of any manufacturer's software significantly. The Archive Suite is a package consisting of scanner software and imaging software for a subsequent image optimization.

Now featuring a perfect Frame Detection, an optimized JobManager and the JobMonitor iPhone App. As an optional feature we have a ICC Profiling (Color Calibration) for Inkjet Printers available.

Optimized Features with the latest SilverFast Release
With the release of the new SilverFast software version 8.5.0r6 there are new or improved features, which contribute to simplify the process of image archiving.

Optimized Frame Detection

The SilverFast Frame Detection has been revolutionized. We developed the IFF+Engine (Intelligent Frame Finding) that intelligently searches for photos, slides and filmstrips, which lie on the flatbed or in the film holder. All image frames are now perfectly found. In addition, the frame outset option ensures that no images are cropped during scanning. Store your images on your hard drive, fast and securely with your SilverFast Archive Suite 8.5.

Open the SilverFast preferences and switch to the "Auto" tab. Enter a value of 5% into the "Find Frames: Outset" text field and a safety addition of this size will be added to all frames when starting the scanning process.


High Resolution Prescan

Enable the "High Resolution Prescan" option, if you want to optimize your images right away with the scanning process. For evaluating tool effects more precisely on a larger preview, you may then zoom up to 8x times into the prescan without having to wait for another preview scan.

Open the SilverFast preferences and switch to the "General" tab. For scanning into the HDRiRAW file format, leave this value at 1x, since scanning into RAW formats grays out all the editing tools.


Individual User Interface Adjustment

The SilverFast user interface can be customized to suit personal preferences. The positioning of tool dialogs can be saved and loaded in the preferences menu.

Drag individual tool dialogs to a suitable position even to your second monitor to have a better overview and to get quick access to the most used features. You can create and save multiple user interface presets for different digitization workflow.
