"Interface"

April 28, 2008  |  By montylee

 |  Version: SilverFast SE (Epson) Perfection 6.5.5r5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I concur with other comments that the interface is extremely cumbersome. It is a good program but the interface is the weakest part. It also cannot save files as JPEG that is readable by most programs (Preview included). The program installation fails to follow Mac standards and sticks a file in the root directory of the hard drive, and will modify your dock without asking. The developer knows this but chooses not to change it, which is an arrogance that makes the product less appealing. At higher scan resolutions (48-bit) many of the options disappear--something not mentioned in the documentation.

In short, it is a good program that takes a lot of trial and error to figure out. It is invasive of you system, so check for files after installation. Use TIFF for maximum compatibility with other programs.

"Great but flawed"

September 28, 2006  |  By mxheadrm

 |  Version: SilverFast SE (Epson) Perfection 6.4.4r6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Silverfast is an incredibly powerful piece of coding. It is unparalleled in functionality and yields great results.

Sadly the developer has neglected the interface. The non-standard user interface is very clunky, and needs a Human interface lift.

"Far superior to Epson's own offering"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Although I miss the batch scanning capabilities of Epson's software, this is a tremendously reliable and powerful piece of kit that complements my Perfection 4870 wonderfully.

Allows me to use my old SCSI Epson Expression 636 on my G4. Superb scratch and dust removal. Scans within Photoshop.

"Highly recommended!"

June 08, 2003  |  By hmeisner

 |  Version: SilverFast SE Epson/LaCie 6.0.2r032

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
As a longtime user of Silverfast with Photoshop, I'm at a loss to understand low ratings given to this excellent software. Superb results with easy to use interface... and runs without a glitch on my Quicksilver G4.
