    "Buggy Installation - will not accept Registration"

    January 29, 2014  |   By constructo

    Version: VueScan 9.4.23

    Pros

    As usual VueScan is easy to use. Large readily viewable preference panels enables user to have good control over the scan in a variety of formats. However ...

    Cons

    Having used VueScan for many years, contrary to the previous versions and upgrades, this version just WILL NOT RETAIN CLIENT INFORMATION (Serial number, client number, etc.) on my system. I have gone through the recommendations of the Vuescan help list, purged my preferences from the Preferences Folder, and rebooted the scanner and the computer umpteen times; all to no avail. I was working quite successfully with the previous version of the program. Although the program installs successfully, and accepts the codes and registration information - i.e. all windows change to OK after the information is entered - the information is not retained, or processed,and the application keeps coming back asking me to purchase the program. SO - I am hoping I can reinstall the previous version since it was working GREAT. (My System: iMac 2008 Edn, with OSX v10.9.1. 2GHz. Intel Core Duo processor, 6GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM)

    Summary

    The program installs successfully, and accepts the codes and registration information - all windows change to OK after the information is entered - but the entered information is not retained, and the application keeps coming back asking me to purchase the program. I cannot get the program to retain and acknowledge the registration information - WHICH IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE INFO PROVIDED ON THE INVOICE.

    "Buy it now"

    December 25, 2013  |   By ezslides

    Version: VueScan 9.4.17

    Pros

    This software will let you scan with any scanner and get great results. I have used it for years, and it always just works under any Mac OS (or Windows, for that matter). People who complain about it not working with Photoshop should be aware that Adobe created that problem with the OS and chose not to correct it. If you play around with Vuescan a bit, you will not have a problem with the interface, and it will give you great scans every time. Pay the price once and use it forever - all updates are free. It's a lot cheaper than buying a new scanner every couple years because the old one won't work in the new OS. I've used software from different hardware manufacturers and always come back to this one for all of my scanners. Oh, and you can save your files anywhere, with consecutive, specialized names in multiple formats (jpeg, tiff, pdf, etc.), or print scans automatically

    Cons

    NONE, Not any, nada.

    Summary

    If you can't understand the interface you probably have a lot of issues with software in general.

    "Previous versions good, this one....?"

    November 29, 2013  |   By davidweeks

    Version: VueScan 9.4.05

    Pros

    Previous version does what it says on the tin.

    Cons

    Sadly, this version does not connect with my Epson Scanner, so I'm using the earlier .04 version of the App.

    "Decent, but don't use if you shoot with Ektar"

    November 12, 2013  |   By kdaphoto

    Version: VueScan 9.3.21

    Pros

    Works with wide range of scanners, especially old. Results are good with TMAX. Decent control over scan.

    Cons

    Don't use if scanning Ektar because scans are so heavy with cyan they are unusable. You cannot get rid of it in post produciton. Asked for help, he didn't have an answer. Pointed to some suggestons in the manual, but it is out of date.

    Summary

    Decent software except for Ektar, then it's useless.

    "Perfect for"

    October 24, 2013  |   By fernemer

    Version: VueScan 9.3.15

    Pros

    I have been using it for years with different scanners and VueScan has always worked fine either with documents and photos. I use it in Germany with the Garman interface and i am always surprised about the functionality of VueScan. And when it "didn't work" it was always may own fault and every time Ed was very patient and helpful.

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    Try it - use it - and be satisfied.

    "THE most responsive product support on the planet!"

    October 24, 2013  |   By eleven22

    Version: VueScan 9.3.15

    Pros

    It. Just. Works. With virtually any scanner. I wouldn't be surprised if it interfaces with my toaster-oven. ;) And if there's an issue, Ed Hamrick is all over it.

    Cons

    I wish this app were bundled with all scanners.

    Summary

    VueScan was not playing nice with the duplex scanning via ADF on my Epson WF 7520. I had an ongoing dialog and shared log files and comments with Mr. Hamrick over a span of a 5 or 6 weeks. With each successive update btwn my first contact and today, the solution got closer and closer — and as of today's release of v9.3.15, he nailed it! I now have 100% scanning functionality. Thank you, Ed!

    "Does a great job with old scanners."

    October 11, 2013  |   By glwade

    Version: VueScan 9.3.09

    Pros

    Allows the use of old scanners long after the manufacturers stop upgrading their drivers. I just produced some beautiful scans from an old Epson scanner that I hadn't used in several years. The software was very easy to use, and recognized the scanner instantly.

    Cons

    Well, price. But if I were writing and maintaining this software, I'd be tempted to charge even more!

    Summary

    Great software, invaluable when you really need when you really need to use an old scanner, or someone else's scanner and you don't have their drivers.

    "The only app on the market that supports my hardware."

    August 13, 2013  |   By Stephanie Mitchell

    Version: VueScan 9.2.23

    Pros

    VueScan lets me keep my investment in my old but good and fully functional hardware instead of consigning it to landfill. OCR works well for capturing text, even though it can't capture layout and font details like dedicated OCR apps.

    Cons

    Complex interface, inability to double-click a preferences file to launch, 64-bit version is very awkward to download.

    Summary

    VueScan continues to support my elderly yet still fully functional HP ScanJet 5300c even though HP stopped producing drivers for it with the arrival of OS X. Once the settings are set, I can scan a stack of prints with single-button ease even though my scanner has no document feeder. All the features of my elderly Minolta negative scanner are also supported. This gives me a consistent interface for all my scanning needs.

    "As bad as it gets :-("

    July 22, 2013  |   By MacCollector

    Version: VueScan 9.2.22

    Pros

    + It probbaly supports a lot of scanners but in a terrible way.
    + You get one year of free updates, but you don't need them.

    Cons

    - Its the worse User Interface I have ever used on a Mac. I suppose you have to be PC freak to appreciate these weird way of handling a slide scan.
    - Every attempt to scan a slide gets me mad and you have to start over from the beggining again.
    - Saving dialog is not automatic as you'd expect. File is tored inside Prefernces folder!?
    - Look at Apple and LEARN. There are so many setting that are of little use and are not explained with pictures but with loooong explanations.
    - Scanning 4 slides "DIAs" in one go is almost impossible.

    Summary

    Don't buy it...!
    Use Apple's built-in version. It's much simpler and much more to the point without a lot of frustration, hunt and seek for the settings that might help you.
    VueScan has just about NO thoughts at all about how we think and act as humans. A user interface that is so complicated is of no use regardless of the number of options and alternatives, when you cannot figure out how to get your job done.

    1 Use Apple's print/scan options in Control Panel
    2 Use your scanners own driver if it is understandable and capable doing the job.
    3 Use VueScan if all other fails.

    "It works OK"

    May 7, 2013  |   By Jonnny

    Version: VueScan 9.2.17

    Pros

    supports lots of different scanners but I only own two

    Cons

    To expensive
    the upgraded version for $80 has all the features which is w2hat I need but I don't need to upgrade every other day either.
    As far as my limited view can see is that the upgrades are just for new scanners.
    It would be nice if it would actually scan right into Photoshop 5, 6, etc.

    Summary

    I really liked the Epson scanner software that came with my scanner however the new version of OSX does not support that and I am forced to use "Print & Scan" in Mountain Lion.
    It is very limited.

    VueScan does have all the features and I do not dislike it but I would like it a lot more if I could afford the full version.....does it ever go on sale....?
