The VueScan Bible: Everything You Need to Know for Perfect Scanning--New from Rocky Nook
Santa Barbara, CA—VueScan is one of the world's most widely used software interfaces for digitizing film and prints on flatbed and film scanners. This powerful yet affordable program supports over 1,600 scanners and more than 300 digital camera RAW and scan RAW file types. It is the only scanning program that supports Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.
VueScan's basic functions allow you to restore color, add sharpening filters, adjust white balance, and batch-scan multiple images. Additional features like multi-sampling and multi-exposure expand the functionality of almost any scanner beyond what you can achieve with the manufacturer's software.
VueScan also provides output to a variety of image formats including TIFF, JPEG, scan RAW, and searchable PDF files, and even allows output to several formats simultaneously. The Pro version includes advanced options for color management and scan RAW output, making it a bargain compared to competing software.
The VueScan Bible (Rocky Nook, $34.95 USD) is the missing manual for both new and experienced users of VueScan. Sascha Steinhoff, author of the best-selling book Scanning Negatives and Slides, 2nd Edition, guides you through each of the program's features and teaches you how to make the most of them. This book is the indispensable resource for anyone who is serious about achieving stunning image quality from scanned images.
