Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 18, 2006
Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the world's most popular scanning software for consumers and professionals, has announced changes resulting in a 50% increase in the speed of processing. In addition to this, the user interface has been totally overhauled, with new icons replacing words. The whole look and feel is more friendly, easy to use and will appeal to a wider base of consumers.
Used extensively by professional photographers, film processing labs and consumers around the world, VueScan offers options for scanning faded slides and prints and automatically adjusts images to optimum color balance, reducing the need to do this manually 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 OCR and PDF output.
For a detailed listing of VueScan features see:
VueScan is available for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. It supports over 500 scanners, in addition to support for 209 digital camera raw files.
"We have a very large customer base - over 130,000 people. For many years customers have commented on how the speed of scanning is a key influencer in their decision to purchase VueScan. Many customers scan over 10,000 images or documents a year, and if we can improve performance at all it makes a tremendous difference to them. We are delighted that we have done this, and at the same time have made a vast improvement to the user interface." noted Ed Hamrick, president of Hamrick Software.
VueScan is available in two editions, Standard Edition ($49.95 USD) and Professional Edition ($89.95 USD). The Professional Edition adds unlimited free upgrades, advanced IT8 color calibration and support for raw scan files.
