I tried to find the Shaw article on the web and saw several references to the fact that it had been deleted. I suggest that you email John Shaw and ask if he can send it to you or provide a link from which it can be downloaded.
I think I have a hard copy of the article. If I can find it I will scan it and send it either by post to Nikonians or email. However it will be a day or two before I have time to look for the article.
I do strongly recommend using the scanner and software ONLY to get a quality scan. Leave all editing to the editing programs (I use Photoshop CS6). That will produce a much better image. John Shaw discusses this is his article, which I found to be very helpful in getting me started with scanning.
