Now, that new ocean surface temperature feature is really nice. I'll be using that in my astronomy teaching :-).

Did they finally fix the "have to be admin to run it"-madness? That is THE gripe I have with version 6.x of this program.

I am amazed at the complaining about the price of VueScan.

When you are going to pay for the program (at ), surely this is after you have evaluated it and come to the conclusion that the price is right for what you are going to use it for? If you find the price too steep, then simply do not buy it. If the program has too many features for your needs, then it simply may not be for you.

If all you need is a 2CV, why buy a Lamborghini and bitch about the price?
Besides, VueScan's pricing is such that almost any small job will recoup the expense immediately.

For me, personally as well as professionally, switching to VueScan was a no-brainer. I got rid of the crappy software that came with my scanners and settled on one scanner independant program.
At work we have a mixed bunch of scan hardware, HP, Epson, etc, but users see only one interface. The latest addition was a Nikon batch slide scanner, plugged it in and hey presto, VueScan scans slides.

I for one hope that Ed Hamrick lives long and prospers.

Tried it on a Tiger 17" PB, but it runs that machine completely into the ground. My 20" G5 iMac (latest model, requires Tiger) did not fare too much better.

This may be the graphics problem under Tiger the author mentions. But everyone will end up with Tiger eventually, so if AstroGrav is going to be used on the Mac, its current problems will have to be tackled. I think its beta at the moment.

I hope the problems will be resolved because the program looks very promising for educational work.

So I won't rate it now but wait until I can use it.

Still the same situation on my PB. Dead slow. Hopefully the next version brings salvation, I really want to use this app......

Tried it on a PowerBook and it is very snappy. I'll try it on a G5 tomorrow ;-).

Q1: Is it possible to create an intuitive zoom environment? like: hold the mouse clicked over a spot and see in very LoRes the QT movie that will be rendered?

Q2: Can you add an option where the color gradients are rendered without visible separations?

Absolutely wonderful! Never any trouble installing or running it. I use it whenever I give lectures about the Earth and the surrounding space, and as an attention getter at astronomy fairs.

Thanks to dev for this beautiful educational toy!

Does what it says. Would be nice to have it display ALL unread messages and not just those in the in-box. Maybe as an option?

We have scanners from different vendors and different types, yet we want to have one scanner interface so user support and disk image maintenance is kept streamlined.

VueScan is the ultimate answer to this.

If anyone finds that the quality of the scans is not to their liking, they may of course report their findings (in the form of exact data) to Mr. Hamrick, so he can do something about it. Just stating that something isn't any good means nothing.
