Default V700, Vuescan and how to get the best results

Hi there,

I am new to the world of scanner and need some advice please.
I have started by reading some books on how to restore old photos, as I have been given an album of photos from the 1930 that someone wants me to archive for them.

I have an Epson V700 and a copy of the latest Vuescan.
I have done loads of test scanning, but am still not sure what are the best settings that I should use.

As most of the photos are quite small, I have chosen to scan them all in at 600dpi, and at 64B RGBI to make use of ICE.

I thought that using RAW rather than TIFF would allow me to get more from the photos when I processed them, but the results are about the same, however the file size is considerably larger. So much so that I am thinking of just sticking to TIFF; is this okay?

If anyone has any tips on how I should be using the settings I would be most grateful.

Thanks,
Simon.
