I am interested in purchasing Photoshop but not sure which version to buy. I found 1 on Photoshop website but they wanted 999.00 eek.gif and that is a bit much to fix DVD covers. Any suggestions? Thanx in advance.

photoshop elements is a great substitute for photoshop,at a fraction of the price.you might even find elements bundled up with a printer,so if you need a printer you might want to see what is on offer.you can also find some free plugins for this application on the internet.one site which offers a good variety of plug ins is the plugin site
and as for tutorials there is a huge selection some of which i have tried myself at the top of this page. have fun clap.gif

Okay now. i know this thread is well over a year old but somebody might be able to narrow this down....

I have and Epson RX580 (scanner), Printer(paper/disc) and an HP 4100 series scanner printer. I use the following programs:

DVDFab: cool for (hmmm) backing up my DVD's
Nero Ultra Edition 8: for burning the DVD's
Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0: for photo enhancements
Roxio Easy Creator 10: for my CD collection

The problem is the scanner and the Adobe. How the hell do I get the graininess out of the scanned picture using Adobe. I have used 150/300/600/1200 dpi still the same problem. What would be the proper setting in a scanner and the proper filters to use in Adobe?

Hi macblob

I use adobe photoshop 5 with a Canon Canoscan 4400F scanner
I am no expert but here are my thoughts...

I have just done some tests:

---one with ArcSoft PhotoStudio 5.5 scanning/photo software (which was bundled with my scanner)

---and another using Adobe WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) import

both at 300 dpi (recommended by freecovers), which is a good compromise between quality and file size

ArcSoft PhotoStudio wins hands down every time because you can adjust features like:

Unsharp Mask

Grain Correction

Dust and Scratch Removal

and then clean it up in Adobe using the clone tool which for me is the single most useful tool in Photoshop. A few minor tweaks with colour/contrast and it's there!!

I tried aiming for as near to perfection as I possibly could but only covered about a square inch in a week, and my eyes stopped working eek.gif Never again!!

I would recommend using your bundled software rather than the WIA import.
I usuallytest print the suspect covers before I upload these days and you'll be surprised how well they print on good quality glossy paper despite looking a bit grainy in Adobe.

Hope this was helpful, and remember, in the words of someone or other:

Knowledge is Power

Thanks. I will look into doing this at 300 DPI for now on. Yeah and it is pretty grainy in Adobe.
Grain removal...hmmm I do not remember seeing that in Adobe.

Okay I found grain in Adobe and it makes it more grainy not less grainy.
I do use dust and scratch removal, Despec and Auto Layer.

Sorry to hear you're still having a spot of bother macblob, have you checked out Robs excellent scanning tutorial, here's the link:

http://forums.freeco...p?showtopic=415

In it he discusses the use of the blur tool which reduces the grainy appearance, which I now use all the time and it really works!!

Also Outlaws quality obsessed ramblings contains many great tips on scanning, you'll find it here:

Hope this helps macblob, best regards, cheers.gif gareth6000 cheers.gif
