VueScan for Mac

05 March 2021

Scanner software with advanced features.

What is VueScan for Mac

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.

I'm trying to get an old Epson Perfection 2580 working on a new M1 Mac running Big Sur. Unfortunately, Preview and Image Capture will no longer work. Although they see the Epson driver they can't activate it. But the trial version of Vuescan works... But it costs $60 in Australia for the basic version. Or $130 if I want slide scanning and a few other advanced features. That's a lot of money. So, what are my options. 1. Grit teeth and buy the software. 2. Buy a brand new Epson - Perfection V39 for $99 3. Get an old Mac working and use Image Capture or Preview At the moment I'm working backwards. Hopefully will get an old Mac working today. But if Mr Hamrick's software had of been priced a bit more realistically I'd have been using it by now.

Will this work with an HP Scanjet G4010? I cannot find it on the list of scanners supported. Thanks!

Bought a professional upgrade right before VueScan stopped supporting my scanner. Money was wasted and upgrade was never used. Asked for a refund and Ed Hamrick, the notoriously miserly owner of the company was incredibly short and rude with me. The software works until it doesn't. The owner is an ass and not worthy of your money.

Could be a great app but it is rather buggy. Writing for support does not produce a reply and online documentation is lacking in detail and specifics. Batch scanning is poorly implemented and unpredictable. OK - it supports a lot of scanners, but it has to work properly as well.

App is OK. But you're on your own if you have a problem. Support is done by author and he is one rude dude. You have to send him a vuescan log file that allegedly provides only diagnostics. Who knows what else it provides? He stubbornly will not provide support unless he gets his log file. There are other scanning apps that are supported properly.

In an update to my previous review... I use this software with more than one scanner and it is always better than the software provided by the manufacturer. I use a Plustek 8200i film scanner and now use VueScan rather than the Silverfast 8 that came with it. I recently had a problem after the latest update 9.7.28. This is understandable because VueScan works on a wide variety of scanners. Ed Hamrick stayed in frequent communication until he could fix the problem. You will not get better customer service than that from anyone! I'm glad I bought the Pro license. It makes sense if you do any scanning on any machine.

I have been using the Professional version for about twenty years now, through at least a dozen scanning devices on Mac and Windows systems, and have never -- n-e-v-e-r -- been let down by this app or developer. If I ever have a question, I invariably find the answer in a careful reading either in the software or at the website. Recommended as essential.

This is essential software. I am using it to control a Brother MFC-L27000W because Brother's software is inadequate. All I wanted to do was a multi-page pdf. I don't think the Brother software can do this, but I KNOW that VueScan does, because it was easy and intuitive. I use it to control an Epson Perfection 2450 for large format negative film. The results are good and easy to achieve. I use the VueScan to control a Plustek 8200 film scanner. Again the results are go and although there is a bit a trial and error learning curve, (if your preview is a little dark you are good to go with Tri-X), the results are consistently good. My one quibble is that there is no film setting for Tri-X and Plus-X, but good results are easy to attain with a little experimentation. I had been using SilverFast for this scanner, but I am finding it easier to get good results with VueScan. I really appreciate that I don't have to make separate software purchases for each scanner.

I similarly have a Scan Snap S1500M, and found the software difficult to navigate, unable to retain settings, and would inconsistently scan multiple pages, often scanning and saving just one page. Moreso, however, I had a very bad experience with the owner, Ed Hambrick. When I inquired for a refund, I had to email three times just to get a response. When I did, the owner was unbelievbly terse and rude, essentially telling me to f*** off. Obviously I can't give a good review to someone who can't show an ounce of respect to a customer. I recommend in the strongest of terms, avoiding this software and this business altogether. I found ExactScan is far better, cheaper and more professional option (and company).
