Hamrick Software has updated the VueScan application to version 8.4.46 bringing it up to speed with the new Leopard Mac OS X 10.5 and adding support for five new Epson scanners.
VueScan is probably the most widely used scanning software, with more than 5 million downloads of the software to date.
â€œMany of our users are Apple Mac users, and use their scanners quite frequently. It is important to them that we upgrade frequently, and that all of the 750 scanners that we support are kept up to date with latest releases,â€ says Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software.
VueScan is available for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux and offers a full range of advanced features including options for scanning faded slides and prints and automatically adjusting images to optimum color balance that reduces the need to manually do it in Photoshop. It includes built-in IT8 color calibration of scanners, producing colors that look true to life, batch scanning and other advanced and powerful scanning and productivity features, including PDF output.
VueScan is available in two editions, the $40 Standard Edition and the $80 Professional Edition. The Pro Edition adds unlimited free upgrades, advanced IT8 color calibration and support for raw scan files. There is also a fully functional trial version if you wish to test it first.
