I have "thousands" family and relatives slides that I want to digitalize, as I don't have the time to use a scanner I've set up a slide duplicator with a 5dMII tethered to lightroom. It works fantastic and it's very fast, I just have to crop images, apply a preset, small retouches and jpg export. The quality is more than enough for my needs. The problem is that when I'm scanning I usually create some profiles with Lprof and Wolf Faust It.8 slides and apply them in photoshop. This of course goes fine and photos improve a lot, but now that I'm using lightroom I would like to keep inside the program because that would speed up the process a lot. So far I'm shooting at a "kind of" daylight bulb and applying a modified "Faithful camera" profile. This puts me pretty close. Things I've considered:

- Using dng profile editor and manually adjust patches of the IT8 slide: A part from being time consuming there isn't a way to see output numbers in dng editor so this option is out of question.

- Using Rags IT8 script to create an ACR/Lightroom camera calibration preset. I don't like this kind of calibration but even so I would also need a lot of time to adapt the script to Wolf Faust numbers specific numbers.

- In the Adobe web I found that there are no "camera profiles" built by third-party software. So my guess is that there isn't any way to convert an icc to "camera profile". Or is there any? That would be the perfect solution.

A part from this, another problem I found is that a lot of slides are 80's with faded colors and I think there isn't a way to correct individual rgb channels in Lightroom. HSL sliders work sometimes but they are far from perfect. I know this software was not made for this kind of works but mabe someone has found a workaround.


Any help would be appreciated.

The DNG profile editor seems to be the best tool for you. You're still going to have to tweak but you'd have to do that with the scanner driver anyway.

Thanks Andrew, I think I'll wait until Adobe releases a non beta version with (I hope) output number display.
