comment Colors while scanning a cross-processed film: why [not] so vivid?
Answer accepted. A final question for the exhaustive completeness, (IF I may) though: I've seen in the scanning program something called like "color profile", where a hexagons arranged within an RGB-CMY circle are displayed, where you can "fix" every color toward one of the RGB-CMY tones. Do you know which tool I am talking about? Reminds me about something like "selective color" in Photoshop, but for the scanning phase. Will such a tool be useful in my case? How easy it should be to get my hands on it? Any other related tips will be most welcomed.

comment Colors while scanning a cross-processed film: why [not] so vivid?
photo.stackexchange.com/questions/2624/… - well, as far as I've got from here, "all I need" to reproduce the lab colors is a color profile of the lab printer (and as well its color scanning capabilities), right? So, in fact, it is pretty impossible to get the same-or-similar colors out of the box, is it? Especially if it's about cross processed film (slide film E6, developed via C41) where color shifts are common and white balance is never correct. Am I right, please?

comment Colors while scanning a cross-processed film: why [not] so vivid?
Hello and thanks for paying an attention to my post :) Yes, I clearly understand that the cheaper devices produce different results. However, my story is not about getting more details in the dense x-pro film (in that the more expensive scanner would probably be able to squeeze more results). I suppose that the answer of my question is in color management domain. I think (not sure though) that when you are scanning - then there is kinda display with hexagons and RGB+CMY circle (color profile?) - I think that this tool probably does the job. Not sure why, not sure how.
