Gobshyte you are gent mate been after this for ages and can't wait to hear it cheers.

As for that scanner problem I get that sometimes, it seems the scanner does not always pick up the lighter shades.

I'm not sure about your scanner problem, but I've found on mine that if the original image is flush against the edge of the glass, the scanner fails to pick up the 3-4 mm (quarter inch or so on this side of the pond) nearest the edge. My solution was to create a matt: a piece of heavy paper/thin card stock which I taped into the edge of that corner to position the original a safe distance from the edge. Sometimes it's necessary to do a slight bit of clean up afterwards in a digital picture editor if any of the matt gets picked up by the scanning.

Love your blog ...
