Having been a printer who does this every day with product labels, All yu can do is bring it into photoshop and hit auto color. You can twiddle and fool till the cows come home, but nothing is going to make a scanner compatible with a film or print. This alone gives me cause to have little regard for digital imaging of any kind. I have absolute zero intention of buying a so-called photographic grade scanner. Having said that, to the extent we are communicating amongst ourselves with help from these scanners, they do serve at least a meager purpose.
