Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 7, 2010 -
Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the world's most widely used scanning software, has released VueScan 9 x64 - with support for 64-bit operating systems and a major improvement in speed.
"Customers have been asking for a 64-bit version of VueScan for more than a year, ever since Windows 7 x64 and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard were released. Not only do we support 64-bit now, (which allows you to use more scanners on 64-bit operating systems) but overall VueScan is faster and more responsive, especially on start-up." says Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software.
"VueScan 9 x64 has other significant improvements. It lets you use Canon transparency adapters on 64-bit Windows, it automatically installs a Photoshop plugin and a TWAIN driver and the interface is easier to use. More screen space is used for scans and less space for options. You can also customize the font size if you want to change this, and there is improved support for 28 other languages."
"We've constantly looking for ways to improve VueScan - and we have a vast amount of customer feedback - and this latest version is a big improvement in speed and responsiveness. Because many people have multi-core computers, we use parallel programming to make scanning as fast as is physically possible. Our customer base is wide ranging - photographers, companies and home users - but everyone will notice the improvement in performance," says Ed Hamrick.
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.
