VueScan Newsletter 2

Latest version of VueScan

We released VueScan 9.4.47 a few days ago with a new feature: it opens the folder that scans are written to at the end of the scan. You can change this to the old behavior if opening a viewer for the file by using the 'Prefs | External viewer' option.

This lets you do useful things like e-mailing a scan - click on the scan with the right mouse button and choose 'Send to | Mail recipient' on Windows or 'Share | Email' on Mac OS X. You can also easily move, archive, copy, delete or rename the scan.

We released VueScan 9.4.48 with support for 50 new Epson scanners (mostly printer/scanner/copiers), and have been working hard to support all new Epson, Canon, HP, Brother and Samsung scanners.

Since our first newsletter in July we have released 15 new versions of VueScan.

Tips and Advice

People often ask us if they should replace their old scanner.

If you're scanning paper, almost any scanner made in the past 10 years will be fine - 600 dpi is all you need.

If you're scanning film, make sure you have a scanner that is capable of at least 2700 dpi - any Nikon film scanner that you buy on eBay can do this (and we think they're great scanners) and an Epson Perfection 4870, 4990, V500, V550, V600 or V700 will do this and can often be picked up on eBay for a good price.
