PRESS RELEASE: Hamrick Software updates VueScan to 8.0.9
Phoenix, AZ July 14, 2004 -- Hamrick Software, a leading developer of scanning software for consumers and professionals, has released VueScan 8.0.9, of its award-winning program that enables users to easily produce better looking digital images from color snapshots, negatives, slides and documents.
The update includes added support for a number of scanners including several PIE-based scanners, and for specific models of Epson, Kodak, and Nikon scanners. This update also makes VueScan easier to use by incorporating an automatic photo-cropping feature that lets a user place a photo anywhere on the scan bed. Additional improvements include new support for Canon EOS and Nikon D raw files, improved support for Minolta and Epson multi-function printers, while improving performance on both Windows and Mac OS X.
Used extensively by professional photographers, film processing labs and consumers around the world, VueScan 8.0.9 now offers an enhanced, user-friendly interface, support for raw files for 109 digital cameras, and support for more than 100 scanners. The Standard Edition of VueScan costs $59.95 USD and the Professional Edition costs $79.95 for a single user license. Multi-user licenses are available.

VueScan supports over 100 flatbed and film scanners and more than 110 digital camera raw file types, and is available for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. It automatically adjusts images to optimum color balance, which reduces the need to manually do this in Photoshop. VueScan includes built-in color calibration of scanners, producing colors that look true to life. Supporting more than 100 brands of negative film, VueScan offers options for scanning faded slides and prints, batch scanning, IT8 color calibration and other advanced scanning features.
