14 January 2020

Scanner software with advanced features.

Overview

VueScan is a scanning program that works with most high-quality flatbed and film scanners to produce scans that have excellent color fidelity and color balance. VueScan is easy to use, and has advanced features for restoring faded colors, batch scanning and other features used by professional photographers.

Why should you use VueScan?

  • Easy to use - just run VueScan, press Preview, adjust the cropping, then press Scan.
  • Accurate colors - uses ICC profiles and IT8 calibration.
  • Powerful - dozens of advanced options.
  • Faster workflow - can edit one image while the next image is being scanned (most scanner software won't let you work with one image while another is being scanned).
  • Simple to install - installing VueScan changes nothing on your system, installs nothing in your operating system and all other scanner software will continue to function.

The list of supported scanners is available here.
The list of supported digital camera RAW files is available here.

Best App of its kind. It works perfectly on my old Scan Snap S1500M.

Works but... terrible UI and... a new bugfix version every single day for weeks? Has developer any clue or he just goes by attempts? :-/

I have the lastest version of Mac IOS and this latest version of VueScan works. Before it would not recognize the scanner, now it does!

I have been using VueScan software for over 10 years. There is not any software on the market that supports the number of scanners that Vue scan does. In most cases it performs better than the factory software that came with your scanner. It is simply the best.

This is a great application! When Fujitsu, in their immense stupidity, decided to drop support for my scanner, I was left with either finding a software alternative or spending hundreds on a new scanner. Vuescan not only works better than the Fujitsu app, but the scanner works better with the application as wel. No more failed scans, frozen software, etc. I would absolutely recommend this application!

Turns out this version is called "standard" and the updates are free only 1 year. Thereafter you have to pay for each update/upgrade(which are quite frequent). Is that correct ? Only the professional version has the "advanced" features and unlimited updates, and it is around $80-$90. Any comment please ?

That's not true at all. I've been using it for years and never been asked to pay for the frequent updates. Hamrick does a good job updating it frequently.

well, this is at least what his website says. But thanks for confirming that it is not exactly true.

First, about terminology. If you're new to traditional (non-subscription) software, the words "update" and "upgrade" usually mean two different things. ""Upgrade" usually means a major version bump like 9.x to 10.x. Most companies charge for a major upgrade. Most companies do not charge for minor "updates" like 9.7 to 9.7.14 or 9.8. After 1 year, it sounds like VueScan Standard is no longer eligible for updates or upgrades. But I do not think it means you have to pay for every little update that comes out. If you want any update or upgrade after 1 year, you'll probably have to pay for another Standard license and you'll be good for another year of free updates. The website actually isn't very clear on that point. I'm not sure why Standard exists, maybe for users who only need to do a scanning project every few years. There are definitely some users who only use a scanner for 6 months to scan all family photos, and then they rarely use the scanner again. I do enough advanced scanning that bought the Professional license so I never have to pay again.

Thanks Neutralzone, maybe Hamrick can explain more the difference between Standard and Professional ?

zlazkow, the differences between Standard and Professional are clearly listed in a comparison table at https://www.hamrick.com/reg.html . The only thing he might explain more clearly is to confirm whether I guessed right that all you have to do to restart another year of updates is to pay for another Standard license, but otherwise it's pretty clear. But I think if someone is so concerned about getting future updates, they can already see from that Pricing page that Professional is the better deal, if there is any chance you might want to use VueScan for more than two 12-month periods.

Have used it for years and wouldn't want to scan using anything else. The only time I had a problem it was traced to the printer itself, and Hamrick helped me track it down.

Best scanning app on the market! Have been using it from day one when I had an old Apple scanner that was no longer supported. Even the pro version is well worth the money.

Great app. My s1500M went kaput when I updated my os to Catalina. That was my fault - I should have did my research before updating my os. Don't really want to get a new scanner since this one still works fine. Found VueScan and it was able to save the day.
