CyberView settings

Scanning of slides is only the first step (which should be followed by color correction processing and tagging of pictures) in the process leading to organized digital pictures archive. As I have already stated in my previous post, I am perfectly satisfied with included CyberView software. This post is not CyberView manual, you can find a better one here. I will only describe the settings that I have used and why I have chosen each of them. But before we come there, I want to describe some basic principles I have followed.

View pictures on TV set

This post is partially out of sync with others. It is about how to convert digitized pictures for best viewing experience on TV screen. I hope at least some readers will find it useful.

The problem

Several days ago my daughter celebrated her 20th birthday. According to family tradition this means we invited everybody (grandparents, aunts and uncles and their families) to dinner. Since I had just finished scanning my slides, including those of my daughter from her birth until I started to use digital camera, I have decided to prepare a short “historical overview of her life”. It took me almost 2 hours to select approximately 100 pictures out of several 1000, but that is not the theme of this post.
