VueScan 9.6.45 Release Notes

VueScan Quick Start

Scanning Images

  1. Run VueScan
  2. Insert image into scanner
  3. Set "Input|Media type"
  4. Press "Preview" button
  5. Adjust crop box with mouse
  6. Press "Scan" button
If the colors don't look quite right in the preview, try clicking with the right mouse button (with control key on Mac OS) on an area of the image that should be gray.

To reset to the automatic color balance setting, double-click on the image with the right mouse button (with control key on Mac OS).

If the lighting in the scene is unusual (i.e. at sunset or with stage lighting), try setting "Color|Color balance" to "Neutral".

Using Scanner as Copier

  1. Run VueScan
  2. Set "Input|Scan task" to "Copy to printer"
  3. Set "Input|Media type"
  4. Set "Input|Media size"
  5. Insert image into scanner
  6. Press "Scan" button
  7. Repeat from step 5

Working with Scanned Images

VueScan is designed to save scanned images to JPEG files (by default) or TIFF files (optionally).

You can configure your favorite image editing program to automatically open each image when a scan completes. Use the "Prefs|External viewer" option to control this.

On Mac OS X, you can set up the default viewer for .tif and .jpg files by:

  1. click once on a .tif or .jpg file
  2. choose "File|Show info"
  3. choose "Open with application"
  4. pick the application you want to use
  5. press the "Change All" button
On Windows, you can set up the program that automatically starts with scanned images by setting up a file association for .tif and .jpg files. To create a file association, click on a .tif or .jpg file with the right mouse button, select "Open with", then "Choose program". Pick the program you want to use, and also select "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".

On Linux, use the "Prefs|Viewer" option to select the application to use to view .tif and .jpg files.

Scanning Roll of Film

If you're scanning many frames from the same roll of film, the following procedure will optimally set the CCD exposure and film base color (i.e. mask color):

  1. Set "Input|Options" to "Advanced"
  2. Set "Input|Media type"
  3. Insert film with most transparent area
  4. If "Input|Lock exposure" visible
    • Clear "Input|Lock exposure"
  5. Press "Preview" button
  6. Adjust cropping if necessary
  7. If "Input|Lock exposure" visible
    • Set "Input|Lock exposure"
    • Press "Preview" button
  8. If "Input|Lock film base color" visible
    • Set "Input|Lock film base color"

Batch Scanning

To scan multiple images in a batch, set "Input|Batch scan" to "All" to scan all frames in a device, or set it to "List" and type in the list of frames (i.e. "4 3 1" for frames 4, 3 and 1, in that order).

Supported Scanners

VueScan supports more than 2400 different scanners on Windows, 2100 scanners on Mac OS X and 1900 scanners on Linux. These scanners are organized by vendor name below.

If your scanner isn't on this list, VueScan may still work with your scanner if you can find a WIA driver (Windows) or an Image Capture driver (Mac OS X) on the scanner manufacturer's web site.

Please note that not all scanners work with all operating systems or SCSI/USB/Firewire interfaces, but most combinations are known to work. The best way to find out for sure if VueScan works with your scanner, operating system and interface is to download the trial version of VueScan from

On Mac OS X, VueScan works with most USB to SCSI converters, including the Adaptec USBXchange and USB2Xchange. VueScan also works with most Firewire to SCSI converters. You don't need to install any vendor software to get this to work. Only one SCSI device per converter is supported, and you should use SCSI ID 0 with USB to SCSI converters.

Supported scanners:

Braun Phototechnik

Supported Digital Camera Raw Files

VueScan supports raw scan files for the digital cameras in the following list. However, note that the colors may will be more accurate if you use an IT8 camera target (like the one produced by Wolf Faust) and if you use VueScan's "Profile|Profile scanner" command to create an ICC file for your camera.

Mac OS X Release Notes

If VueScan doesn't see your scanner on Mac OS X, first make sure that "About This Mac" (in the Apple menu) in the USB devices section can see the scanner. If it doesn't, try powering off the computer, powering off the scanner, powering on the scanner and then powering on the computer.

If VueScan is crashing, try a newer USB cable and/or a different USB port.

If you're using a scanner that isn't supported by VueScan and you're using Mac OS X 10.10 or earlier, try installing

If you're using a Ratoc Firewire-SCSI adapter, you may need to configure one of the options. Try setting the time between the power on and the SCSI bus reset to 40.

If you're using the Ratoc USB->SCSI adapter, set up the adapter with the Ratoc utility to "Mass Storage" mode.

If VueScan still doesn't see your scanner, go into "System Preferences", "Accounts", then "Startup Items". Make sure nothing is being started that might be accessing the scanner (i.e. "Epson Scanner Monitor").

If you've installed the Umax software for a Firewire scanner on Mac OS X, you need to remove (or rename):

  (the name begins with Umax but might have a slightly different name)
If you're using a Canon LiDE 40 or LiDE 50 on Mac OS X, install the Canon software for the LiDE 35. These scanners are identical except for the outside plastic, and there's a universal binary driver for the LiDE 35 on

If you're using a Canon LiDE 80 on Mac OS X and are having problems seeing the scanner or starting VueScan, try re-installing the Canon scanner drivers. If you're using Mac OS X 10.6, you'll also need to copy the folder from the LIDE80_7275MXEN.dmg file in the "Into Users_Shared" folder called CanoScanLIDE80 to the /Users/Shared folder on your hard drive.

If VueScan hangs with Firewire scanners, make sure OpenFirmware has "security-mode" set to "none". Other settings cause problems.

Canon N-series and LIDE scanners are powered directly by the USB port. The USB port must provide a power supply of 500 mA. If you plug the scanner into the USB port on a keyboard or other USB device, the scanner may not work properly. Attach the scanner directly to a USB port on the computer or to a 500 mA self-powered USB hub. If you find that an N-series or LIDE scanner doesn't work with one of your USB ports, try plugging it into the other USB port.

If you're using a Microtech FireSCSI adapter, make sure that you're using SCSI ID 0 and that the SCSI termination is correct.

If you're using an Orange Micro 906F SCSI card, make sure it's upgraded to at least firmware version F1.35.

Windows Release Notes

VueScan works on Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 (but not Windows 2000).

If you've set up a shortcut to vuescan.exe and are having problems, try double-clicking \Program Files\VueScan\vuescan.exe directly. This will test whether the problem is with the way the shortcut was set up or whether the problem is with VueScan.

To use PIE (Pacific Image Electronics) scanners with VueScan, you need to first install CyberView X (not CyberView 32). VueScan uses the CyberView X libraries to control the scanner.

To install CyberViewX_SF on Windows 10, you need to install an unsigned driver. Go to "control panel - device manager - imaging devices" and update the driver for the slide viewer from the folder c:\windows\Twain_32\cyberviewX_SF

If you're using a Microtek scanner, you need to remove the Microtek Scanner Finder from the startup folder in the Start button.

There have been reports of VueScan freezing while scanning using Minolta scanners when the McAfee virus scanning software is enabled. If you have this problem, try disabling the McAfee software.

If your scanner has a button on the front and if a program starts up when you press this button while running VueScan, you have a program running in the background that you need to stop. To stop this program, press control-alt-delete, choose the task manager and use it to stop this program. One example of this is the Epson Status Monitor.

If you have the Adaptec DirectCD Wizard on the Toolbar, you may have to remove it to get VueScan to run.

If you have an ELSA Synergy III graphics card (or possibly other NVideo graphics cards) and VueScan hangs when starting, you may need to disable the Desktop Manager that comes with the card (the file that causes the problem is nvdesk32.dll).

Linux Release Notes

On Linux, run vuescan from any directory. Your serial number will be stored in ".vuescanrc" in your home directory.

If you're using a newer Linux distribution that's LSB compliant, edit "/lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules" and add a line for the scanner you're using. You can get the Vendor ID and Product ID from the supported scanners list on

You can find more details here. If you're using a Firewire scanner, make sure you've loaded the sbp2 module.

If you get errors from gtk when starting VueScan, make sure the LANG environment variable is set to C.

If VueScan crashes on startup, make sure you aren't using the idescsi module - this can cause problems.

If you're using an Epson scanner that uses a plugin library, make sure you've installed the Epson iscan plugin package There's more information about this on VueScan Supported Scanners page for your scsnner.

If you're using a SCSI scanner, you need to make sure all of the /dev/sg* devices are read/write accessible. To see what scanners are available, type "cat /proc/scsi/scsi".

Note that the Adaptec AVA-1505 SCSI card doesn't work with a Nikon film scanner, and will cause a hard bus hang if you use VueScan with it. This is due to a bug in the aha152x driver. Another bug in this driver causes junk to be appended to the end of a raw scan when using the PhotoSmart. Other SCSI cards seem to work fine with VueScan on Linux.

There have also been problems reported with the Adaptec AVA-2904E and the Canon FS2710, although this combination works fine on Windows.

If you want to add or remove scsi devices without rebooting your system, use the following commands:

echo "scsi add-single-device 0 0 ? 0" > /proc/scsi/scsi
echo "scsi remove-single-device 0 0 ? 0" > /proc/scsi/scsi

(use the SCSI ID in place of "?" above)
If you're using libusb to access a USB scanner, you need to make sure the protections in /proc/bus/usb are set up properly. There's some information about setting up libusb on Linux.

To use the scanner.o module on Linux, you need to load the scanner driver and specify the vendor ID and product ID of the scanner. For instance, to recognize the Canon N670U, use "modprobe scanner vendor=0x04a9 product=0x220d". Then type "cat /proc/bus/usb/devices" and make sure "Driver=usbscanner" is enabled for your scanner.

If you're using Linux 2.4.12 or later, you don't need to do anything special to have the scanner auto-recognized.

If you're using an earler version of Linux with a USB scanner, set up the SCANNER0 environment variable to point to /dev/usbscanner or /dev/usb/scanner (it needs to be read/write accessible), set up the SCANVID0 environment variable with the USB Vendor ID (VID) and set up the SCANPID0 environment variable with the USB Product ID (PID). You can support up to 8 USB scanners at a time by using SCANNER1, SCANNER2, SCANVID1, SCANVID2, etc.

For instance, to set up VueScan for the Epson 640, use the following commands if you're using csh:

    setenv SCANNER0 /dev/usbscanner
    setenv SCANVID0 04b8
    setenv SCANPID0 010c
or if you're using sh or bash:

    export SCANNER0="/dev/usbscanner"
    export SCANVID0="04b8"
    export SCANPID0="010c"
Note that you don't need to set up these environment variables on newer Linux kernels or if you're using libusb.

If you're having problems with USB timeouts (i.e. with the Nikon CoolScan IV (LS-40), make sure you use the "usb-uhci" (CONFIG_USB_UHCI) module instead of the alternate "uhci" (CONFIG_UHCI_ALT) module. You might also increase the kernel usb timeout value (CONFIG_USB_LONG_TIMEOUT=y).

Removing VueScan

To Remove VueScan, use the "Help | Remove VueScan" command.

This removes the vuescan.ini and vuescan.log files, and deletes the folder they're in (if empty). This doesn't delete any .ini files you've created.

If an administrator account is used to remove VueScan, the global registration info will be removed, otherwise the registration info for the user removing VueScan will be removed.

On Windows and Mac OS X, the VueScan Photoshop plugin will be removed, the TWAIN data source will be removed and the registry will be cleaned up.

On Windows, any device drivers that VueScan installed will be removed.
