    "Try AutoSplitter instead"

    June 24, 2013  |   By Oregano77

    Version: Instant Photo Scanner 1

    Pros

    Didn't install correctly, and I can't un-install, either.

    Cons

    Didn't install correctly, and I can't un-install, either.

    Summary

    Download and install AutoSplitter that is still working on Win7, and even on Win8, has WIA support, so it's probably going to work fine on new systems.
    See http://autosplitter.com/

    Pros

    Cons

    To bad you can no longer buy

    "Works great for 7 days but stops"

    January 5, 2012  |   By dknispel

    Version: Instant Photo Scanner 1

    Pros

    Allows single pass scanning to multiple files. Put more than 1 picture on the scanner, do a preview, highlight your pictures then scan to create individual files.

    Cons

    Only works for 7 days then stops with no way to purchase the product. I even called the company and they don't even acknowledge that the software exists.

    Summary

    Good product but only works for 7 days. I switch to software provided but Epson with my new Epson scanner. Does almost the same thing but scans multiple passes for each picture (1 preview for all the pictures and 1 scan for each picture). At least it is automated and lets you put multiple pictures on the scanner.

    "Works great, still works - see below"

    November 23, 2009  |   By pvcx

    Version: Instant Photo Scanner 1

    Pros

    Scan multiple photos at once, fully automatic.

    Cons

    Since cannot be purchased, must bypass license system on each use.

    Summary

    I scan my photo albums without taking the photos out! I click "Preview", and the software automatically locates the photos. Note that sometimes you have adjust the rectangles showing where it thinks the photos are, but usually it does it correctly by itself. Then I click "Scan", and it scans them all at once, rotates them if necessary, and saves them to files, all automatically. By the way, II recommend scanning at 300dpi (default is 150dpi) for glossy photos, but just create a new profile and it will remember that.

    It is true that this product can no longer be purchased, and will expire after 10 days. BUT just write down the date you installed the product. Each time before running the software, change the computer date to the date you installed it. Run the software, and afterward change the computer date back. Then you can use it forever.

    Finally, C-DILLA which is installed along with this software is not spyware, it is just a license management system.

    "Great (dead) solution for scanning multiple items"

    October 31, 2009  |   By DaClyde

    Version: Instant Photo Scanner 1

    Pros

    While most HP scanners come with this capability, almost all other brands are left wanting. Instant Photo Scanner fills the void for those of us who scan LOTS of photos and assorted items and need something to help cut down on the time required.

    Cons

    Sadly, this software is no longer available for sale. Truly a crime as I've not found another utility to replace its functionality!

    Summary

    Well written, very well functioning, but ultimately abandoned software from DataBecker. Great if you can find the crack!

    Updated on Jul 6, 2010

    Pros: Great little piece of software that allows scanning of multiple objects into individual files in one pass. I've scanned tens of thousands of trading cards with this software, and after working with the features a bit to get it adjusted, absolutely love it.

    Cons: For some reason, Data Becker seems to have sold the rights to a company in the UK that, for whatever reason, can't sell it outside the UK, and Data Becker no longer offers it. I have a great piece of shareware with a 10 day (TEN) trial period, but no one to take my money! I really want to pay for this software, but can't find any way to get a legitimate license!
