I realized that gimp has a pandra plugin for stitching image files.
So this can be done entirely on Linux platform, which is easier for
me. I'll report how it goes when I get to rescan some of my photos

I thought we are all photographers with brain... no?

I always thought that digital ICE is of no use to scan b&w negatives
and prints. Image is opaque to IR just like dusts are.

Profiling scanner is of no trouble to me. I do it once and save the
parameters into a file. (I use vuescan.)
