Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 14, 2005
When a married couple became embroiled in a bitter argument over the poor condition of the pictures in their wedding album, they didn't go to a marriage counselor, but to Professor ÂAÂ.
Owned and operated by Alec Fromm, Professor ÂAÂ, based in Mississauga, Ontario, is an independent training service for Apple's Mac OS X operating system. Alec agreed to help the couple restore their wedding memories. Even though a Âprofessional photographerÂ took the pictures, Alec determined that the black & white and color 35mm negatives were underexposed and improperly processed for the types of film used. How could this marriage be saved?
Alec turned to Hamrick SoftwareÂs, VueScan, the award-winning program that lets users easily produce better looking digital images from color snapshots, negatives, slides, and documents. Using VueScan, Alec was able to capture the film data at a level that allowed him to manipulate the images to a point where the output was astounding, when compared to the original prints.
ÂVueScan's selective batch scanning features, plus its ability to save scanning options as loadable presets and numerous film type options allowed me to speed up the process and adjust settings for maximum results,Â noted Alec. ÂMy friends are now very pleased with the results and have one less obstruction to their wedded bliss!Â
Used extensively by professional photographers, film processing labs and consumers around the world, VueScan 8.1.30 offers an enhanced, user-friendly interface with support for raw files for 109 digital cameras, and support for more than 400 scanners, including all Canon and Epson scanners.
The Standard Edition of VueScan retails at $49.95 USD, and the Professional Edition retails at $89.95 for a single user license. Multi-user licenses are available. A fully functional, trial copy of VueScan can be downloaded from http://www.hamrick.com/.
VueScan is available for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. It automatically adjusts images to optimum color balance, which reduces the need to manually do this in Photoshop. VueScan includes built-in color calibration of scanners, producing colors that look true to life. Supporting more than 100 brands of negative film, VueScan offers options for scanning faded slides and prints; batch scanning, IT8 color calibration and other advanced scanning features.
