Ok, as I said before I'm new to this scanning of slides/negatives/photos, and the two software packages that came with the scanner are PhotoDeluxe 4.0 and Photoshop 5.0 LE. Neither of these packages allow editing of a photo scanned in at 42-bit (when I mean editing, I mean the used of filters, changing image size, changing hue, saturation, etc.). The software packages require the bit-depth to be reduced to 24 bit before editing can be performed.

Does a full-blown (extremely overpriced, in my opinion) copy of Photoshop allow editing of these photos while still at 42-bit?
Are there any other programs out there that are just as good for scanning photos in, but a little less expensive, and still allow the editing of a 42 bit photo.


Now, those who know me understand that I'm not a cheap person; however, since I will only be using this software for scanning in my photos (and some friends' photos from time-to-time), I feel it is rather ludicrous to purchase a software program that will be used about once every two months that costs in the area of $500.00.

Also, if Photoshop is the best way to go (or the only way to go), has anyone had any luck purchasing this package on eBay?

Just to let you know, I'm currently scanning in my slides at 42-bit and saving them as a .tif file, and yes, they are large files. Later, when I plan on posting them to my website I will drop them down to a reasonable size .jpg file. However, scanning in as a .tif file allows me to keep a file that will not lose detail, as a .jpg file.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Doug
