I'd suggest you get a print target and a transparency target and setup at least two different ICC profiles. I'd also recommend you use the Adobe RGB gamut as your working space. I have an ICC profile for colour transparencies, SCALA transparencies, colour negatives, B&W negatives, colour prints and B&W prints. Each profile tweaks something just a bit to ensure the proper rendition of the media I am scanning.

Which scanner do you have? I am looking at the Epson 4870. i've been having trouble deciding between the Pro version and the cheaper 'non-pro' version. I was wondering what that It8 thing was, since it mentions it is offered in the Pro version along with Monaco Ez-Color, Silverfast Ai, etc.
