I emailed Ed a couple of days ago with a new problem. Vuescan would cut out my Epson scanner. I could only scan from Image Capture and Epson Scan after years of faultless performance from VueScan. I had to disconnect the usb cable to get my scanner more...

For all practical matters, I deem VueScan to be in the category of another "Corner Of The Market" very overpriced/highly overrated piece of software. While it does what it says, I find the quality it produces to be sorely lacking at more...

I recently changed my scanner from a dedicated Epson scanner to an HP Officejet wireless all-in-one as I've found my scanning needs dwindling rapidly in recent years. I've a long-time user of VueScan, and the moment I removed the Epson scanner and connected the HP Vuescan recognized it and started working with it immediately. Vuescan has far more features than I'll ever need, but it can do all the scanning I need, with marvellous results, and support is second to none. Like other users, when I've had to contact Ed (only once) his reply was prompt and courteous. Terrific app and service!

For what it's worth. I recently changed from a ScanSnap S300M to a ScanSnap ix500EE (Evernote Edition). At first VueScan was not recognizing the ix500EE even with the ScanSnap Manager Evernote Edition closed. It turns out that the old ScanSnap Manager was still loading, blocking VueScan's access. Once I updated the ScanSnap Manager to the ix500 standard (deleting old ScanSnap Manager files) everything worked.

In sum: for VueScan to recognize an ix500EE the ScanSnap Manager Evernote Edition and if present the ScanSnap Manager must be Closed or OFF. Also VueScan apparently will not recognize the ix500EE via WiFi, thus the USB cable must be plugged in.

I've positively rated VueScan before. I'm doing it again for two reasons. I have recently purchased a SnapScan iX500EE (Evernote Edition) and had trouble getting VueScan to recognize it. I emailed Ed and thoughtfully over a period of two days of prompt back and forth emails the problem was solved. It was my configuration, not a VueScan problem. But I especially want to applaud the prompt, courteous and helpful individual response from Ed. I've occasionally in the past had to seek his help and he is always there for is users. Ed is a refreshing contrast to the big software developers with tier one, two and three support systems, and bureaucracies. My rating of the software is 5 stars. More importantly my rating of Ed is 5 stars!

I hate this new version, which has made my Canon N650U unusable. I click 'preview', get the spinning ball and then a sliver of 'ants' moving around the narrow box. Just awful

UPDATE: Lesson learned. DO NOT delete the previous version until testing the new one. I had to uninstall and reinstall the new version twice, rebuild disk permissions, restart and only then did the new version finally get the old Canon scanner working again.

I learned a lesson too! "Whats new" does not relate to my scanner model, so why upgrade???

AS was stated, unless new features have been added or a specific problem with your specific scanner has been addressed, in most cases nothing is gained and there could be minor risk associated with updating to every .xx release. The frequent releases, despite what the conspiracy theorists around here would have you believe, are almost always to address problems related to a small subset of the thousands of supported scanners, or to add support or a new level of support for a small number of scanners. It's always good to hold on to at least 1 working version on .dmg as well for a backup in case an update causes issues (being the hoarder I am, I have most of the last 4 versions - 9.0 thru present). And if one does, and if you are a registered user, Ed is great at working with you to troubleshoot the issue, many times issuing a fix within 24-48 hours.

Vue Scan is, simply, the best scannig program on the Mac OS X market. Mr. Hamrick is keeping it for both 32bit and 64bit customers. Thank you Mr. Hamrick, you are the picturesque example how developers should treat all customers, that is, Mr. Hamrick hasn't forgot us with 32bit Mac machines. And lot of other developers are forgetting 32bit customers!!!
Thank you Mr. Hamrick. Once again, Vue Scan is the best!

The developer, Ed Hamrick, has created an essential scanning tool. Not only does it support many legacy scanners, but one can tweak a scan before saving it to file. You can even save different tweaked versions of the scan [without having to do a physical rescan].

Add to this Ed's responsiveness to user messages, and diligence in fixing bugs, and I can heartily recommend buying this program.

One caveat: If, like me, you need to work with multipage scans, you will find the removal of the multi-page tweaking facility from version 9.4 disconcerting. Fortunately, version 9.3 is still available for download

If you have an older hardware or OS, not supported by the most current vuescan, older versions are available, as are versions for Linux and Windows.
