Just recieved a spring 2011 catalog from Patagonia (what a surprise since I even didn’t get the VIP invitation?!) What attracts me are not the products (of course they looks really good), those photos with world class trad climber working their way up on a featureless wall in Indian Creek, Utah, boulderers sending their super hard (V16?) route and their commitments to the route…

No matter how many times I watch these photos, I still get psyched. My palms are sweeting so bad and the catalog is half wet already.

The solution? I need to talk to my buddy and perhaps we should pursue the craziness (happiness as well )

Well then, also thanks to such beautiful sunset which really made me a day…

Ahh…I sent 1 onsight and 1 red point this evening, with so many routes remaining failure, failure is always an option!

I am also grateful to myself, my willingness makes me a better climber.

今日同阿YAT又去攀獅, 條死仔又遲到, 但我原諒佢

首先去左WEST FACE試左條AUSTRIAN STAIRCASE, 聽聞係ONE OF THE BEST, 梗係要玩下. 結果真係好好玩, 可惜第2 PITCH有個BOLT爆左, 起馬要OVER RUN 5M, 我地唔敢上, 落番去玩EAST FACE

  • AUSTRIA STAIR CASE, (6a) ON SIGHT 開懷大笑
  • Reunion II, Pitch 1, (6b) nothing, really terrible climb that I performed today. 傷心
  • Unknown, Pitch 1, (6b) aid climbed 驚訝

結論係我仲未ONSIGHT到6B, 只係勉強爬到, 仲要再努力D丫!!!!

終於都決定送陪左我唔小日子既銀豬, 迎接哈穌....可以叫做送豬迎穌?!

由決定買入佢既時候, 都同自己講, 去完非洲就要賣左佢, 但都拖到而家先賣....回想起, 佢都陪我走過大大小小既山...

Mt. Kilimanjaro, Olorgesailie, OLT, OLG, Kenya game park, nakuru game park...

今朝難得的起心肝去影雀仔, 因為知道南山邨有一棵好靚的英雄樹...之前攀石成日經過都唔發覺...真係...

早上8點左右去到, 慢慢開始有點早上的側光, 真係好好彩, 亦都影到唔小靚相...

自身體出毛病我就更注意平時飲食既健康, 可惜發覺屋企附近d食肆都係好多味精又唔好食...等我諗下學整意粉先

星期日呆係屋企scan相, 努力後得出很滿意的8筒正片….仲有32筒…到底會scan到幾時呢

h1And2more_tonemapped

Scanned by SilverFast HDR 6.6, 500dpi @ 2000 res, 2 x scan, 48bit HDR output to 48 bit Tiff to 16 bit jpeg…個config連我自己都覺得好複雜…總之結果我好滿意啦 :)

有時我阿媽會問, 駛唔駛整到專業攝影師咁. 其實係唔需要的, 但只係一種執著. 對美感的執著.

In this article I will concentrate on the third component of the CMS option in SilverFast Ai and SilverFast Ai Studio.

The first section of the CMS options dialogue (Color Management) was explained in part 1 and the second section was explained in part 2 of the same article

The CMS options dialogue looks like this:

Color management system components

Color management system components dialogue

The third section “Embedded ICC profiles” is pretty straightforward, it has one checkbox, an indicator and a drop down menu.

third section "Embed ICC profiles"

Embed ICC profiles

Using this section you will specify whether or not an ICC profile should be embedded in case you decided to use Plug & Play CMYK profiles in the first section, you can then specify which profile should be used.

Embed ICC profile. If you mark the checkbox, a color profile will be embedded along with your resulting files, this option is active by default, if you unmark the checkbox, this option will be inactive.

Profile to embed. Is the line right below the checkbox, this line is only a display or indicator (it is not a menu). The profile that will be embedded to your resulting files is shown here. This profile is the one specified in theprevious section under “internal” profile

Plug & Play. allows you to select the desired CMYK plug and play profile. This option is not active unless you have told otherwise in the first section under the menu “internal->Output”

Color Management System in SilverFast (part 3)

In this article I will describe the second component of the CMS option in SilverFast Ai and SilverFast Ai Studio.

The first section of the CMS options dialogue (Color Management) was explained in the previous article (part 1)

The CMS options dialogue looks like this:

Color Management System dialogue components

Color Management System dialogue components

The second section “Profiles for ColorSync” (on Mac) or “Profiles for ICM” (on Win) has six sub-menus to assign specific color profiles to every device and process.

Profiles for ColorSync (Mac) or ICM (Win)

Profiles for ColorSync (Mac) or ICM (Win)

Scanner (Reflective) assigns the color profile for the scanner when scanning reflective material.

Scanner (Transparent) assign the color profile for the scanner when scanning reflective material positive or Kodachromes. Note that this menu is greyed out because the scanner was set to ‘reflective’ before opening the options dialogue, if you wish to adjust this menu, please make sure you activate the transparency scan mode before.

* These profiles (Reflective and transparent) are scanner model specific and come with a generic profile for every scanner model. Specific profiles for your own scanner can be generated using the IT8 calibration tool (optional and sold separately).

Windows might present problems with more than 200 color profiles, should you have more than 200 color profiles, make a back up of your profiles and use only those you need.

No scanner profile is provided for negative scans in CMS, the scanner profiles for negative scans are provided with the tool NegaFix where every film type can be selected.

Internal assigns the basic color space on which the entire scanning process will work. This is also the profile that will be embedded within the resulting file (in case that option is active).

Grey assigns the profile for grey-scale scans

Output/Printer assigns the printer profile. To activate this menu, the option “ColorSync” (Mac) or “ICM” (win) under the menu “input->Output” in the firs section should be selected, otherwise this menu will be inactive.
When this profile is assigned the resulting file will be generated in RGB by the scanner and then converted to the selected profile.

Rendering intent tells SilverFast how colors from one system should be interpreted in another system or from one device to the next one.

Since every device sees and interpret colors in different ways, there should be a system that tells SilverFast how to interpret all colors from one device and convert it to another device or color space.  (This categories will not be explained in depth in this article).

The next section of the “Color Management System” dialogue will be explained in the following article (part 3)

Color Management System in SilverFast (part 2)

Basically color management allows for a complete controlled color reproduction through the entire imaging workflow.

In other words, the colors of your originals are maintained  over the entire process of manipulation with a high accuracy percentage.

There are two color management systems in SilverFast scan software, the one contained in SilverFast Ai and Ai Studio and the one found in SilverFast SE or SE Plus.

This first article is dedicated exclusively to explaining the color management system in SilverFast Ai and Ai Studio.

SilverFast Ai and SilverFast Ai Studio

This big versions of the scanning software SilverFast have a very complete color management system which allow for a completely controlled scans in terms of color.

To access the color management system in SilverFast please click the “options” button (under Mac select the general tab first):

Options_button

Options button

In the options dialogue click the “CMS” tab

CMS tab

CMS tab

The CMS dialogue has three main sections

Color management system's sections

Color management system's sections

The first section “Color management” lets you define how SilverFast will communicate with your different devices and which color profiles will be used for that task.

Color management section

Color management section

Input -> Internal menu specifies the color space system that will be used between your scanner and your program (either SilverFast or your post-processing applications). ColorSync for the Macintosh and ICM (image color matching) for windows.

The option none is also present in case you want to give up color accuracy between your scanner and the programs.

Input -> Monitor menu specifies the color space system that will be used between your program (SilverFast or editing application) and your computer monitor.
Again, ColorSync for Mac and ICM for Windows.

None if you want to pass data to your monitor without any matching

Automatic if  photoshop should take care of how colors are presented by your monitor. This option is active only when starting SilverFast from within photoshop.

Input -> Output menu specifies the color mode that will be used for the resulting file or image (either electronic or printed). This defines the type of data transferred either to your printer or to your imaging application (e.g. photoshop, corel draw, etc.)

there are four options here:

  • RGB is recommended if the scanned images will be used for internet or other digital media like DVD’s, CD rom, etc.
  • ColorSync/ICM should be selected if a printer color profile should be integrated to the resulting file or printed picture
  • LAB CIE Lab represent all visible colors and is device or media independent, many colors contained within this color system can not be represented by normal computer monitors, most printers, paper, etc. This should be used by professionals and scientists who work and know how to interpret the values represented in this color space.
  • P&P CMYK mode tells SilverFast to internally make the four color separation for printing. If you plan to make post processing in photoshop or any other external editor, you should make sure the same color space is active there, having different profiles ind both applications might lead to color discrepancies.

The second section “Profiles for ColorSync / Profiles for ICM” will be explained in the following article.

昨晚花了約一小時setup好部v700同整理下d電線, 又移走左一部唔用的cd-player...結果阿媽又發功, 我唯有忍下

事前已經預備好Silverfast AI Studio, 開左ICE (SPEED) 同 MULTI-EXPOSURE, 試左幾次後得出以下結果:

新上佳能9000F,當然要為9000F搖旗吶喊,現在我們缺少的就是一個銀快了,本帖成功的來源在http://forum.xitek.com/showthread.php?threadid=770107 ,本人按照love012的方法,下載了最新的demo:版本號是6.6.2r2a,覆蓋了love012提供的8ba破解文件,運行silverfast,可以成功進入界面,但是運行prescan和scan的時候均報“An error occured at the start of the scanning process Cannot send Command Set Window”的錯誤,經過反复研究,發現造成錯誤的原因在於love012提供的8ba是基於v6.6.0r4e的8ba破解,把這個8ba覆蓋在v6.6.2r2a上,顯然是不會成功的。
★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★
正確的破解方法其實一點也不神秘,只要搜搜論壇的帖子,還是很好解決的。 下面我來提供最靠譜的破解步驟。
1,去的SilverFast佳能官網下載的演示,目前的版本號是v6.6.2r2a,下載地址:http://www.silverfast.com/download/sf65/SFen-6.6.2r2a(CanonSDK)。exe文件
2、安裝SFen-6.6.2r2a(CanonSDK).exe 我選擇默認安裝,下面的操作都基於默認安裝的文件位置來說。
3、下載YMY_Silver_pt7.exe ,請關閉所有殺毒軟件和各種查殺木馬軟件,因為它們會誤把YMY_Silver_pt7.exe當成木馬殺掉,切記! ! ! 下載地址長期有效:http://www.veryfoto.com/blog/upload/SFTWen-6.6.0r5(MinoltaDSIII-SE).zip
(該壓縮包解壓密碼是:veryfoto.com)把該包解壓
4-1,
winxp的系統:
雙擊運行YMY_Silver_pt7.exe,在中間文本框的右邊有一個“...”的按鍵,點擊它,選擇:“C:\Program Files\SilverFast Application\SilverFast CanonSDK\SilverFast (CanonSDK).8ba”單擊Patch ,這是應該彈出窗口,報告Patch successful! 退出YMY_Silver_pt7.exe ,打開你的佳能掃描儀,連接USB,運行silverfast,一切ok,破解成功!
4-2,
Windows Vista的系統:
本人就是Vista系統,在Vista系統無論怎麼運行YMY_Silver_pt7.exe,都是error! 解決辦法:需要在WinXp系統中安裝silverfast的demo版,然後按照4-1中的方法破解,然後把破解好的SilverFast (CanonSDK).8ba覆蓋Vista系統中的:“C:\Program Files\SilverFast Application \SilverFast CanonSDK\SilverFast (CanonSDK).8ba”,打開你的佳能掃描儀,連接USB,運行silverfast,一切ok,破解成功!
Win7沒有測試,按理,方法和4-2的方法一樣!
破解銀快就是這麼簡單,其他品牌的銀快破解也可照此法操作,選用的破解軟件還是YMY_Silver_pt7.exe
好了,從晚上八點折騰到現在,可算把銀快搞定了,貼上教程,希望更多佳能底掃的朋友們能夠用上強大的銀快!

[2010-08-20 12:52 補充如下]
最新通告,vista 32位系統下,在用YMY_Silver_pt7破解之後,再用SF-Uni_4在vista下破解一下(建議保存YMY_Silver_pt7破解的8ba),運行銀快,點prescan,報錯。 點quit退出,再運行,一切功能正常,看看自己的銀快,變成了Ai Studio了吧,變化最明顯的就是多了最實用的Multi-Exposure,可以大大提升掃描密度! ! !

今日本來打算去攀石, 但無人肯去, 唯有就犯去閒遊單車...

一開波YEETI已經炒車, 阿LING陪佢提早結束行程, 我同阿YAT踩番佢地架車番去....只係租左10分鐘@.@

今日既旅程, 去左大大小小既祖廟, 祠堂... 發掘左好多未見過既地方, 都算係唔錯既旅程

最大驚喜係踩完無受傷 :)
