VueScan Film/Slide Scanning Software

Trusted by over 900,000 customers across the globe

Since 1998 VueScan has saved hundreds of thousands scanners from ending up in the landfill

My scanner, though perfectly good mechanically, had been orphaned heading into Windows 7. VueScan brought it back into use, and the new version for Windows 10 carried that on. The application is excellent.

Minolta Scan Elite

Minolta Scan Elite Technical Information

Minolta Scan Elite

VueScan is compatible with the Minolta Scan Elite on Windows x86, Windows x64, Mac OS X and Linux.

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 both visible light and infrared light in a single 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.

If you're using Windows and you've installed a Minolta driver, VueScan's built-in drivers won't conflict with this. If you haven't installed a Windows driver for this scanner, VueScan will automatically install a driver.

You can use this scanner on Mac OS X and Linux without installing any other software.
