Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the world's most widely used scanning software, has released its latest version 8.4.82 - which now supports over 1200 scanners and 24 languages.
"Our goal is to make VueScan the universal scanning application. We now support 1200 scanners on Windows, 750 on Mac OS X and 580 scanners on Linux. A single 5 Mbyte download supports all these scanners, in 24 different languages.
" says Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software.
"Our next goal is to add more advanced scanning features, such as scanning multiple photos placed randomly on a scanner (auto image segmentation) and integrating google's Optical Character Recognition (OCR) code. All of these advanced scanning features will work with all of the 1200 supported scanners, in all 24 languages, on all three operating systems - a truly universal scanning application.
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 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.
