More Copenhagen Zoo - Axis Deer (Axis axis) male - and a question on using Photoshop


here comes another scan of a picture I have taken in Copenhagen Zoo some
years ago. This is my first scan which has been refined with Adobe
Photoshop 4.0 LE rather than Micrografx Picture Publisher. As I told
you, I have many prints with a "silky" (i. e. rough) surface which tend
to have white speckles all over the scan due to the scanner lamp being
reflected in the pits and dots of the print surface. Photoshop has a
filter which I believe is "remove dust and scatches" or similar in
English; that filter works absolutely gorgeous with these problematic
scans. It takes about 20 minutes to do manually with Picture Publisher
what with Photoshop is done automatically within seconds.

However, one question has arised: I have noticed that Photoshop LE
displays the picture a lot brighter than all my other graphic viewers
and editors do, as if the gamma value was set to about 1.5. There can be
two reasons: Adobe uses a proprietary display driver (which I consider
very unlikely) or it works with a pre-selected gamma value higher than
1. I am positive there must be an option to switch that off, but I
haven't yet found it. Is there anyone who can put some light on this

Thanks for your consideration -
