SilverFast SE for old photos?
Jan 12, 2013

I recently came across a large cache of old family photos - from the 50s - 70/80s mainly. I purchased an Epson V700 expressly for scanning them.

However, I am rather a novice at scanning. What are your recommendations as to what software to use to scan the photos?

I read on SteveHuffPhoto that SilverFast SE is much better than the included Epson utility. It produces sharper images. I downloaded a demo of the program and it seems to rely quite heavily on manual fine-tuning of the settings. I have no idea what those settings should optimally be.

Should I go with another software that's easier to use? Or should I stick with SilverFast SE? If so, what are the settings I should use?
