Version 8.6.66 of the VueScan software adds the ability for Photoshop to import scans directly from the scanning software itself. It also adds support for TWAIN drivers for importing images from a scanner to other programs.
“This capability automatically installs when you install VueScan, and makes it easy to use your scanner from Photoshop,” said Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software. “It works with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Photoshop, on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS X (Intel and PowerPC). Basically any configuration of Photoshop will work with VueScan’s Import filter.”
Hamrick adds that VueScan supports more than 1500 scanners, and is available for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. VueScan 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.
