Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the most widely used scanning software in the world, has released its latest version 8.4.39 - containing more than 30 improvements since the last major release in February 2007 and support for 50 new scanners. VueScan has now been downloaded more than five million times.
"When people use third party scanning software - they frequently have very specific needs. We listen very carefully to our customers, and as a result, release frequent upgrades to the product. Our customers expect very high standards, and it is important to meet their requirements as soon as possible. For example - we have immediately added support for two new scanners, the Epson V500 and Epson V200" says Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software. "Most recently, we have acquired many new customers as a result of supporting Vista. Many scanner drivers don't work on Windows Vista, but these scanners will usually work quite well with VueScan on Windows Vista. In fact, VueScan provides higher quality scans and many more features than the software that comes with most scanners."
"We work closely with the major scanner manufacturers, as they realise that their own software does not meet all their customer requirements. No other company in the world supports as many scanners as we do, as a result VueScan has been downloaded more than five million times, and our customer base is increasing by more than 20% per year"
VueScan 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 colour balance that reduces the need to manually do it in Photoshop.
