When I get my black and white negative previewed in Vuescan and have selected the film setting that best gives me the tonal scale I'm looking for, I hit the scan button and wait for the image to come up in Photoshop. But when it does, the image in photoshop is much lighter than the preview image in Vuescan. The black point and white point are correct for what I set them at, but the image always needs a curve applied that pulls the mids down quite a bit. I've profiled the scanner (Epson V700) and am using that profile in Vuescan. I've got the monitor profile set correctly. Is there something else I'm not doing properly?
