If you look closely, the natural scan is a bit blue and flat. To fix this is quite easy.
Open your scans(s) in Photoshop, and here's the commands...
Command: Image -> Auto Color
And it doesn't matter if your slide scan is too blue, green, or red... this command works on any colour issues like this. All this stuff is called Color Balance. Have a quick look...
To open the Color Balance Tool, click Ctrl + B.
You see, every image is made up of 3 colours: Red, Blue, Green. And whenever your scan is too blue, green, or red, it's because one colour is DOMINATING the others.
So what Auto Color does is, it evens out all 3 colours. So no one colour is dominating the others.
Wait. We're not done. Colours are fine. But if you notice, the image looks a bit bright or washed out. You can fix this by adjusting the exposure.
In the next step I'm going to show you how too do this...
