kodachrome Kodachrome-profiles with the highest possible density for more scanners – without any blue-cast and without any dust or scratches!

By implementing more Kodachrome ICC-profiles into SilverFast Version 6.6.0r3, most Canon, Epson, Hewlett-Packard, Microtek, Minolta and Reflecta’s scanners are now able to scan Kodachrome-slides with the highest possible dynamic range – automatically IT8 calibrated and free of dust and scratches.*

For perfect Color Management simply get our high accuracy IT8-Targets by LaserSoft Imaging® now.

it8target-5x7inch Did you know that the color accuracy of IT8-Targets drops dramatically after 2 years if not stored properly? This is why you should take care of the targets – ideally in a dark refrigerator. Targets should not be subjected to humidity or excessive sunlight. Please make sure that your Targets are not stored close to any sources of heat.

In order to achieve the best possible quality in the Color Management process, your IT8-Targets should be exchanged for new ones every 2 years.

For this reason, we are launching a massive Target trade-in campaign; we offer a 25% discount on the net pricing. *

This is a quote from Mr. Dietmar Wüller, leading expert in Color Mangement about our IT8-Targets:

Logo_IE "It can be stated that all IT8-Targets from LaserSoft Imaging have excellent quality. They are perfectly suited for scanner calibration and fullfil highest quality requirements."

Institute of Image Engineering, Frenchen

Additional information and the Institute’s review of our Targets can be found here.
