So it was especially gratifying this evening when I was able to productively use some technology that had been sitting idle on our desk for at least 6 years. I'm talking about the ICE (Image Correction and Enhancement) technology in the slide scanner that we have never used before. Slides and 35mm negatives are prone to getting dusty and scratched, at least if they're handled much. So most of the pictures I have from scanning slides look like they could use some cleaning. But ICE technology uses 3 dimensional scanning to eliminate dust and scratches. I think an example is called for:
Here's the same slide with ICE technology.

And finally, the same slide with ICE technology and some color adjusting. It almost looks like we're real people.
|With ICE and Retouching|
By the way, according to the envelope the slide was in, this picture was taken 35 years ago at Chrismas 1976.
