    This very well-received ebook was sold from the LaserSoft Imaging website from 2012 until mid-December 2020, when the company abruptly discontinued it, corresponding with their launch of SilverFast 9 and a new ebook expressly for SilverFast 9 written by the owner of the company. As I received no notice of intent to discontinue it, I had to make alternative arrangements for offering it thereafter. Those arrangements are now in place and I am pleased to announce that the book is once again available, now in the PhotoPXL Store at a reduced price of USD 29.95. You may access it here:

    I reduced the price (from USD 39.95) because there may be differences between SilverFast 9 and SilverFast 8 which this book does not cover. That said, I fully expect that much of the content remains generally relevant, and in particular the meticulous treatment of alternative workflows for integrating SilverFast scanning with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, including the implications for colour management settings and what tasks are optimally performed “where and when” in the workflows.

    I was of the view from the outset that SilverFast need not be a universe unto itself but should be seen and leveraged in the broader context of other prominent image-editing software that adds value and options to scanning outcomes. This philosophy has proven to be both effective and appreciated in the market.

    The Table of Contents (Index) is a free download from the book’s page in the PXL Store and provides a comprehensive overview of the book’s coverage.

    Best regards,


    Mark D Segal Author: "Scanning Workflows with SilverFast 8, SilverFast HDR, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop". Please check the PhotoPXL Store for availability.
