Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the most widely used scanning software, has announced full support for Windows Vista.
"When people upgrade to Windows Vista, they're surprised to find that their existing scanner doesn't work" says Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software. "Most scanner drivers don't work on Windows Vista, but these scanners will usually work quite well with VueScan on Windows Vista. In fact, VueScan provides higher quality scans and many more features than the software that comes with most scanners."
Graham Barlow, Editor of MacFormat Magazine comments, "For the Mac community, it's a fact that OS X contains far more backward compatible rivers for printers and scanners than Windows Vista does. What this means is that when people upgrade to Windows Vista they'll discover that their 5-year-old scanner or printer won't ever work for them again, and they'll have to ditch it and buy a new one. Not only does this cause them a headache, it is also out of line with the latest policy on being environmentally friendly."
To use scanners with Windows Vista, install VueScan from http://www.hamrick.com and then plug in the scanner. When Windows Vista asks for a driver, tell it to look in c:vuescan.
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.
