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.

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 best. When compared to the output achieved by the Twain drivers issued by my scanners original manufacturer, there is simply NO comparison quality wise. And the mint Power Mac G4 MDD only cost me $55 when I bought it several years ago for exactly these types of instances. Overall I find Vuescan a far lessor of the many options/alternatives available when a given scanner is no longer supported in Mavericks.

I tried VueScan when I wanted to use my old canonscan - Canon does no longer suport the scanner (shame on you). Because there where no drivers for this scanner for OSX, there was no way to use it with VueScan :-(
Now I have a new scanner which works with VueScan, but also has the manufacturers software and OSX ImageCapture. I do not see the need to pay $40. The GUI is a bit clumsy. I ended up scanning with ImageCapture.

Oh yes poor Ed Hamerick toiling endlessly, working his fingers to the bone no doubt and making the ultimate sacrifice in furnishing Vuescan to the entire ungrateful planet…please give me a break.

Ibookmaster, one simple/obvious solution that immediately comes to mind is that when conducting a simple search on Ebay, at any given time there exist dozens upon dozens upon dozens of scanners in excellent condition all possessing Mavericks drivers available directly from the manufacture that can easily be purchased for well under $40 dollars including shipping. And that would be just one example/solution (among many).

I doubt many of the graphics professionals or pro photographers who find VueScan indispensable would be interested in or have use for any of your $40 scanners, having invested heavily in equipment that in many cases is still highly usable but lacking in current OEM support. I know that if I'm working on a 300 piece turn-of-the-century glass plate negative collection, the 90 piece WWI soldier's medium format film I did, or the recent 1400 slide Ektachrome family photo collection, VueScan is going to allow my scanner to produce the best quality images it's capable of producing for as long as I continue to own it. If you don't need pro-level tools, don't buy them. But if you do, you'll be glad you did. And with that said, VueScan is a steal at it's price.

Sorry not buying your logic. Folks doing this for a living (i.e. true Professionals) own/use scanning equipment/models that will work in OS X 10.9 Mavericks right out of the box. With that said and none the less SOLUTION # 2:

As my foundation is more on the Pro Audio side, it is VERY common to use software and/or equipment where drivers only work or are only available in a previous OS X version. When that is the case, a simple partition or easier yet, the case of the Mac Pro, another Hard Drive installed in an adjacent bay containing both the compatible OS X (10.5, 10.6, 10.7, 10.8) version coupled with the appropriate drivers is a no brainer. Given the fact that pretty much anyone who owns a Mac currently possesses the operating system that there equipment previously worked on, this solution is entirely free and would cost nothing.

Jcraig replied on 27 Jan 2014
So you believe the cost of an additional hard drive and the maintenance of a legacy OS is more economical than the cost of a software package that makes my scanner (and a host of others) functional in the current OS? Sorry, not buying your logic :-) Sure, many of these scanners may have rudimentary support in Image Capture, but I'll go back to my original example of scanning different types of films/negatives. Vuescan contains film/color profiles for numerous types of film, ensuring that your colors are correct when scanning. This is something Image Capture or even OEM drivers just don't do. Not to get into a pi$$ing match here, if you don't find value in Vuescan, you have the freedom not to buy it. But to denigrate those who find it an invaluable tool in their software toolbox shows (and at least you admit it) an ignorance in the wants and needs of those who rely on their Macs and connected peripherals when working with images and color.

Neutralzone replied on 06 Feb 2014
Sorry, Gpatpandp, but your logic doesn't make any sense. You say there are a lot of alternatives to VueScan, but most of them won't work for me. Because they won't run my film scanner, they won't support IR cleaning, they won't support manual exposure control over individual channels, film type profiles, etc. VueScan is one of the *cheapest* ways to get these features, and for all scanners at once...e.g. have you ever priced SilverFast, especially for multiple scanners?

The next flaw in your logic is saying that pros can get Mavericks solutions out of the box. Look, pro scanner production peaked years ago and the number of pro scanners has dwindled to almost none now. That means many pros have great scanners where the software is no longer updated by their manufacturers. Heck, Nikon couldn't even keep their pro NikonScan software up to date with the latest OS X upgrades when they *were* making them!

The next flaw in your logic: How can you say VueScan is "corner of the market" and at the same time say there are many viable alternatives? That's a direct contradiction.

How can anyone buy your line of reasoning after all that?

You can always make your own choice to download the update or not do it anyway, so I don’t see a problem here. Besides, if an app keeps updating every couple of days, at least it proves that the developer’s doing a good job to make the stuff better and better and more bugs are fixed and more functions are added.
In this case, my point is, you only pay for it once and you will own these features and more in the future, so what are all these doubts about? I actually appreciate the updates along the way. Apart from that, the app’s good to use and the color’s amazing. If you got a good tool to get your job done, why care the less important sides?

Neutralzone commented on 22 Dec 2013
There are a few reviewers who accuse the developer of updating frequently to put their app in the listings often. I do not think this is the case because of the nature of the app. This app ONLY appeals to people who use scanners, and that is a decreasing percentage of people. There is NO publicity advantage to appearing more often in the daily updates: Most people will not be motivated to try the app just because they see it, since most people no longer scan. Therefore I do not find it logical that the developer is trying to game the listings.

If you have a need for this app you will actively look for it, and you will probably get it because there is very little good competition. That is the other reason I do not believe the developer is trying to game the listing. People who need the app are going to find it anyway.

Let me understand this. Here is software that you pay for once and then get free updates for life. The developer updates frequently to fix issues, add features, and support new equipment. If you have a version that works for you you're not forced to update, but if you upgrade you computer, scanner or OS you have that option. And you're bitching about that?

There are two ways to update your apps. Update too infrequently, and have your users wait for important fixes, or update too frequently and make users ignore the ones they don't need. I am very much in favor of the latter. If I read the release notes for a particular update and realize I don't need it, I just don't download it!

I think the issue here is what constitutes an update. I don't consider definition updates the same thing as software updates, and, as such, don't think they warrant a software update 'alert', which I see almost every day because this software is on my watch list. I think those kind of updates should just happen within the software, as with anti-malware products. If the case here is that the author is posting a full update just for the definition updates, then I apologize for starting this furor.

The author, on the other hand, might consider the response here. These constant update notifications paint his product with the same brush as those shameless software promoters who make minor changes for the sake of staying on the update list.

MacUpdate-Jess replied on 27 Dec 2013
To all of you, and to Neutralzone above, I apologize if you feel that VueScan shows too many updates. We editors are only supposed to change the time stamp on this listing every ten days. This was the developer's request. Sometimes we forget: in the heat of updating listings, we delete the time stamp because… well, most developers want that, most users want that. Hey, that's what we're about at MacUpdate: updates.

So, again, I apologize if you're annoyed by the frequent updates for VueScan; we'll try to be more careful. But I've seen a lot of software abandoned along the bus-way, and it's nice to see a developer who's so committed to his work. But, hey, that's just my POV.

Rruss had trouble on 12 Dec 2010
As of version 9, I cannot scan to print. The scan if fine but only outputs a blank page to either the printer of Preview. This is with the 32 bit version. I cannot scan with the 64 bit version because apparently the latest driver from Canon is not 64 bit (CanoScan 8600F). I discovered that I could load a previous scan into the 64 bit version and it will print just fine.

I email Ed Hamrick these details. He replied that there is a different print library used between the two versions. However, I have not heard anything further from him and the problem still persists.

Anyone else having this problem? Any suggestions?

I've used VueScan for many years but on my current Snow Leopard system, a Mac Book Pro, the interface acts crazy. Mouse clicks alternately don't register and/or stick, and previews don't match the finished scan. The Hamrick website has no actual email links for support, and even a message addressed to support@hamrick.com - which was the return address for my purchase receipt - only bounced. I'm basically stuck here. Anybody have any ideas? I don't run haxies or nonstandard device drivers, and the problems persist regardless if I have many attached USB devices, or only the scanner itself. I've tried deleting prefs, running the software from a new user account, and so on.

This is the only app I have these kinds of problems with.

I don't know if it's just me, but I'm finding this unusably slow. The preview and scan happens in a reasonable time, but it's taking over an hour to save or print an A4 1200dpi greyscale scan of 39Mb. It's not like I'm short of capacity - this is an 8-core Mac Pro with 10Gb RAM and RAID!
Is it that the watermarking process of the demo version is horribly slow? If so, it doesn't bode well for any other image processing functions.

I've used VueScan for years. The information on how to obtain support is at the VueScan web page. The developer does not read these review sites like MacUpdate.

Most of the support is on the Usenet scanners newsgroup, which you know how to get to after reading the Vuescan web page.

Complaining here is about as useful as complaining at your local coffee bar, I think -- the developer isn't here, neither are the experienced users who can help you.

Secondly, as a developer, I try and read what people think about my software all the time and I feel that it is my duty to answer their queries promptly and to the best of my ability.
And last I have given up wanting to know,really, I am just trying to warn people about the treatment they are likely to get from a company that does not even find the time to answer a sale query. How long will people have to wait for post sales service?

Quoting from the FAQ file:
http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/vuescan.htm#unsupported

BEGIN QUOTE:

Unsupported

* All parallel-port models
* All drum scanners
* All UMAX USB models except 3400 (some versions), 5400 and PowerLook 180
* All Microtek USB models except X6USB, X12USL, 4700, 5600, 5700, 6800, 8700, FilmScan
* Canon FS2720
* Agfa SnapScan Touch
* All Lexmark, Artec, Mustek, Primax, Brother, Visioneer models

Please note that these scanners are unsupported for several reasons:

* Parallel port scanners are unsupported because the commands they use are undocumented by the vendors, are extremely complex and are difficult to reverse engineer.
* The other scanners aren't supported because the vendor won't document the commands they use, and these commands are too complex to reverse-engineer.

Let's sum this up.

"Axe" wrote, posted, and emailed Ed Hamrick repeatedly complaining that he was not getting an answer to his question "Will you ever support Microtek Scanmaker 3800?"

Ed makes clear he doesn't answer in email questions answered in the FAQ.

The FAQ says: Unsupported
The FAQ says: because Microtek doesn't document the interface.

Axe, your complaint is with Microtek. Most scanner makers give Ed Hamrick documentation. Talk to Microtek.

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.
  • Award winning - 2002 "Best Utility", Mac Addict Magazine.
The list of supported scanners is available here.

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

You can improve your Optical Character Recognition (OCR) results if you download a dictionary containing common US English, French, Dutch and UK English words. Put this file (vuedict.dat) in the same directory as the VueScan program. You can choose the language using the "Output|OCR text language" option.
