I purchased a Kodak Q-60 Color calibration sheet because I would like to do some archival scanning.
I'm wondering if this has any bearings but so far I've read up on creating a color profile to adjust the image after the scan. But I'm wondering if I should do any calibrations before the scan as well.
I ask because my scanner and scanning software gives me options to preview a scan and then adjust contrast, brightness, color hue, etc...
When Calibrating the scanner, am I just suppose to calibrate the color profile that will be applied to the image I scan without altering the settings of the scanner. Like considering the scan with no pre altering settings as a raw image.
Or am I suppose to also adjust the settings I give the scanner before a scan so that the colors on my calibration sheet are as close as they should be with no color profile needed?
Are their standards to archival scanning.
