Using Adobe Camera Raw to process film scans

Scan > TIF > ACR > JPG

I hadn’t really appreciated that Adobe Camera raw can be used to process film scans. I’m still familiarising myself with the capabilities of the V500 scanner, and then the other day found a reference to using ACR to process TIFs and JPGs in a book on Photoshop Elements 7. The Epson scanning software is a bit opaque to use, and I wonder if ACR can be used in its place to get the best out of scans.

This is from a 35mm colour negative, and I used ACR’s Clarify and Vibrance settings to dial up the colour a little in this picture, using File > Open as > Adobe Camera Raw to select a previously scanned TIF file. I need to look at this more systematically, and will return to this at a later date.
