New version of VueScan - VueScan 8.6.29 now twice as fast and responsive.
Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the world's most widely used scanning software, has released its latest version 8.6.29 – with a significant increase in the speed of saving files and refreshing the screen.
"Many of our customers have more than 50,000 images or documents to scan. With so many scans, any increase in performance gives a big improvement in our customer’s productivity. With this upgrade, all of our customers will immediately notice and feel the benefits.” says Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software. “It’s really nice to make a real difference to people, whether they are scanning thousands of slides or just a few documents. Saving time for our customers is our most important goal.”
After 11 years of development, VueScan now supports over 1500 scanners on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, has been downloaded more than 8 million times, and is the scanning program of choice for more than 200,000 customers worldwide.
Scanner manufacturers, including Nikon and Epson, are now recommending VueScan on their corporate web sites as a way to use older scanners on Windows 7 and Mac OS X.
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.
VueScan is available in two editions, Standard Edition ($39.95 USD) and Professional Edition ($79.95). For more information please visit the Hamrick website.
