VueScan is an application for Windows and Mac OS X that is compatible with over 2900 scanners from 35 scanner manufacturers. If your scanner is no longer supported by your Operating System, or you want more advanced features, download VueScan today.
There's more technical information about VueScan's support for your scanner at the bottom of this page.
We built VueScan so that two completely different types of users can use it. Beginners only need to run VueScan and press the 'Scan' button, and can press the 'More' button to use basic options. Pro users can press the 'Advanced' button to unlock powerful features to have complete control over your scans.
VueScan can output scanned documents, photos, and film in PDF, JPEG and TIFF formats. It can also recognize text using OCR and create multi-page pdfs using both flatbed scanners and scanners with automatic document feeders.

VueScan works with the Plustek OpticFilm 120 on Windows and Mac OS X.
This scanner has an infrared lamp for scanning film. VueScan's 'Filter | Infrared clean' option can be used to remove dust spots from film scans. This is similar to (and we think better than) the ICE and FARE algorithms.
It scans with visible light in the first pass and with infrared light in the second pass.
Infrared cleaning works well with all types of color negative and color slide film, including Kodachrome. However, silver-based black/white film doesn't work with infrared cleaning because the silver particles look the same in visible light and infrared light.
You need to install a Plustek driver to use this scanner on Windows and Mac OS X. You might also need to use the x32 version of VueScan with this scanner.
This scanner is supported on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and later if you first install the Plustek drivers for Mac OS X 10.6 or later (these will work on newer versions of Mac OS X). Also, run the x32 (not x64) version of VueScan with these drivers.
Note that Plustek drivers for Windows Vista or later will usually work on Windows 10 and Plustek drivers for Mac OS X 10.6 or later will usually work on Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan).
