Editors' Review

VueScan for Mac is a software package designed to take the place of the software that comes commercially packaged with scanners. It provides a very easy-to-use and easy-to-learn interface for scanning photos and documents into your system. It also works with a great number of older scanners that may not have supported software that works with more modern iterations of the operating system.

Pros

Great interface: The interface in VueScan for Mac is extremely easy to understand. The buttons are all very clearly labeled, and within every screen the options and settings are very easy to see, adjust, and understand. Even if you're not an expert with a lot of scanning experience, you should have no problem using the software.

Color adjustment features: When you scan something into VueScan, it has a number of options that allow you to adjust the color of your scanned image. By selecting a preset from a drop-down menu, you can easily adjust the color quality of your image. You can also adjust things manually if you want to get more particular about your final files.

Resurrects old equipment: One of the best things about VueScan is that it can make old equipment useful again. It connects to many older, flatbed scanners that are no longer supported by their manufacturers. This one piece of software can help you use a favorite piece of equipment again.

Cons

Slow operations: Although VueScan is very useful, especially because it works with so much old hardware, it is quite slow. Compared to the packaged applications that come with modern scanners, this software takes quite a bit of time to complete most operations.

Bottom Line

If you've got an old scanner that you love and want to keep using it, VueScan is a great program to purchase. It works as well or better than the software that came with most old scanners. What's even better is many scanners that are no longer supported will work with this program.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of VueScan for Mac 9.4.46.
