Chapter 14. Correcting with Photoshop and Photoshop Plug-ins
Adobe Photoshop is the gold standard for professional image processing. The program has useful tools not only for creative image manipulation, but also for correcting typical flaws in scanned images. It allows you to straighten tilted horizons, perform perspective corrections, and remove red-eyes. There are a number of tools in Photoshop for scratch removal in black and white film: apart from SilverFast, no other scanner program has suitable tools for that. Plug-ins make Photoshop particularly useful for sophisticated special jobs, such as grain removal or color restoration of faded originals.
