Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the world's most widely used scanning software, has announced support for very high resolution scans that exceed the capacity of older 32-bit software. This essentially means that users can now make very large scans. This is a huge benefit to users, as there is no other software available that can do this.
"Today's scanners are capable of very high resolutions - 4800 dpi and beyond. All other scanner programs are limited to scan sizes of 2 GBytes, which makes it impossible to make high resolution scans of larger film sizes," noted Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software.
"VueScan 8.3.68 breaks this 32-bit barrier, allowing full use of scanners that can produce more than 2 GBytes of scanner data. For instance, this allows a new level of realism when scanning 4x5 inch film at 6400 dpi, producing 6 GBytes of image data. This new level of realism exceeds the resolution of any digital camera by at least a factor of 100."
VueScan is available for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. VueScan offers options for scanning faded slides and prints and automatically adjusts images to optimum color balance that reduces the need to manually do this 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 ($49.95 USD) and Professional Edition ($89.95). 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 http://www.hamrick.com/.
