     Well I can see that the problem is caused by the operator whom scanned 
     your slides. Upon scanning each individual slide, he must ensure that 
     the image (color , brightness, contrast)is adjusted as close as the 
     original. Or it could be that the scanner / monitor is not properly 
     calibrated. 
     
     Sebestian,
     How about your monitor, is it calibrated?
     Maybe you can contact Kodak for advise to your poorly scanned images.

Hello everone,
     
I just got a back of 50 slides scanned by Kodak PhotoCD. 
The results are quite bad.  It seems the scanner can't
reproduce the contrast range of the slides. So it arbitrarily 
destroys dark and light areas of the pictures.
     
The slide are shots of ceramic objects over a black velvet background, 
under overcast sky lighting. Of course, I don't mind loosing details 
in the dark areas, but not in the light areas.
     
Is this a know problem? And how do I fix it, without requiring 
a skilled (and expensive) technician to do everything by hand?
     
Did anybody use a "calibration" shot on a roll to set the scanner 
once for a whole roll? And what can be used as a proper calibration 
tool?
     
I'm starting to believe that automated scanning is almost as bad as 
automated printing. I hope I'm wrong...
     
Digitally challenged,
     
Sebastien
