IMO the real problem is not the scanner or the photograph but the monitor in use (and laptop screens are far, far worse).  Waaaaaay too few people calibrate their monitor and so the scan may be perfect, the photo may be perfect but the screen throws in too much blue or too little green or too little brightness, etc. etc and/or any and all combinations of whatever can go wrong… is usually present on most screens.

    Quite true, Dave, but my suggestion was to use the RGB or CMYK proportions sampled from compared images, NOT to trust what you see on the screen.
