From LaserSoft Imaging:
In combination with a variety of innovative ideas and the usage of current software technology, SilverFast has been evolved that we can proudly present as the best scanner software. The WorkflowPilot, a unique feature, is a core element of the new software. As a kind of assistant, it guides the user in the correct order through all processing steps required for his individual workflow. Turning your analog originals into convincing scans is so simply, because all complex operations become just a child's play for the user. The SilverFast Preview Concept allows to immediately see the result of any adjusted setting in the preview window. The user interface of SilverFast 8 is newly developed by current standards, for the user can operate all major functions quickly and easily. SilverFast 8 supports the latest 64bit hardware and is therefore extremely fast and efficient.
