If your passion for photography pre-dates the digital era, you’re likely sitting on an archive of hundreds, if not thousands, of slides and photographic prints.
Creating a digital archive of these analog image originals is the best way to preserve your life’s work and cherished memories from damage or loss, and the latest version of LaserSoft Imaging’s archiving software is just the tool you need to protect your collection.
SilverFast Archive Suite 8 offers a newly designed Virtual Light Table, the ability to scan images to DNG RAW data format along with many other enhanced features that will help you easily bring your analog images into the digital era.
LaserSoft Imaging’s SilverFast Archive Suite 8 is compatible with scanners from all of the major manufacturers and covers all the steps of an archiving workflow from scanning to image processing.
During the scanning phase, the software’s SilverFast Multi-Exposure® can double the dynamic range of many scanners on the market, LaserSoft says.
Thus, no image details get lost. It is the dynamic range that plays a greater role for the quality of a scan than its resolution.
What’s more, using iSRD®, SilverFast‘s automatic dust and scratch removal feature, additional data from the scanner‘s infrared channel is directly written into the raw data formats DNG (or HDRI).
This ‘non-destructive’ approach gives photographers an image as pure as the original which they can access for processing time and time again.
The Virtual Light Table also helps simplify the photo management aspect of digitising your archive, with options for image rating, arranging, selecting and categorising to simplify your workflow.

What’s more, you can also use the JobManager function to make adjustments that can be copied from one to all of your selected images.
