Just bought Negative Lab Pro plugin and using it with LR Classic.
Normally i scan my negatives and lets the scanner scan it normally without any processing to get a standard colored scan and postprocess it in Photoshop.
I noticed that after NLP conversion there is a lot of noise in the resulting scan. I am using the default settings of NLP. Compared to a normal way of scan there is just more noise visible. Is this normal or am i doing something wrong?
However, the colors are great and way better than doing it in latest Photoshop CC 21.
I am using latest Vuescan with a Nikon Coolscan V. Vuescan is set according to the guide to save a DNG file. Also tried it with NikonScan but that also has noise in the result. A normal scan don’t seem to show so much noise.
Must i still move the autofocus target in Vuescan when scanning raw negatives?..or is that pointless?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
EDIT: some weird thing i noticed direct after a scan… in Windows File Explorer the DNG file properties says its 120Mb (which it should be) but the resolution is about 255 x 170 / 8 bit/ low dpi while in Vuescan it says output: 5570 x 3736 pixels 4000dpi??? All settings in Vuescan are correctly set as in the guide. Maybe this is why the DNG metadata update is necessary in NLP? I have done that every time before conversion though.
EDIT2: Adobe Bridge is showing correct resolution and dpi for a scanned image though.
