Scanning Kodachrome Film
For some companies, scanning Kodachrome slides is a challenge because they do not have the professional software & professional staff to handle difficult film like Kodachrome. As you can see from the images to the right, Kodachrome film has a strong blue cast.
Certain measures are taken when we encounter Kodachrome slides. First, we have specific settings we apply to Kodachrome slides to reduce the amount of blue cast that is visible in the digital scan. After the slide has been scanned and is converted to a digital image, we have trained digital photo editors that are able to eliminate the blue even further.
Individual results will vary based on the condition of the Kodachrome film
and the extent of the blue cast.
