Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the world’s most widely used scanning software, has added the ability for Photoshop to import scans directly from VueScan (using the “File | Import” command).
Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the world’s most widely used scanning software, has released its latest version 8.6.66 – with support for importing scans directly into Photoshop – allowing for faster, more convenient image importing directly from the scanner.
“We have tens of thousands of Photoshop users, and we have had numerous requests asking for the ability to import directly into Photoshop. This feature will provide our customers with both time savings and convenience “ says Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software.
“This capability automatically installs when you install VueScan, and makes it easy to use your scanner from Photoshop. 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
“We also added support for TWAIN drivers for importing images from your scanner into other programs. This also works with 32-bit and 64-bit systems, on all versions of Windows and Mac OS X. This means that importing images using other programs is a lot faster and easier, and also uses less memory when scanning.”
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.
VueScan is available in two editions, Standard Edition ($39.95 USD) and Professional Edition ($79.95). The Professional Edition adds unlimited free upgrades, advanced IT8 color calibration and support for raw scan files. Multi-user licenses are available. A fully functional, trial copy of VueScan can be downloaded from
