    I have been spending quite some time researching producing scanned negatives from just the information the CCD on the scanner captures otherwise known as linear scans.

    The linear scan has gamma value of 1.0 and the key to this workflow is to assign this gamma value to a profile in Photoshop prior to converting it to the working grey colour working space.

    I have put together a Photoshop extension panel which takes care of the required steps.

    The Photoshop panel works on both Windows and Mac and Photoshop CC and newer.​

    I make my linear scans with vuescan. Works great. And then i import the scan in photoshop to process it with the colorperfect plugin.

    I make linear scans with Silverfast Ai Studio 8 and, like Ron, use the ColorPerfect plugin. Been working this way for years and it works great!
