PRESS RELEASE: VueScan 8.4.46 Fully Supports Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the most widely used scanning software, has released VueScan 8.4.46 with full support for Apple's Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
PHOENIX, Ariz., Nov 14,2007 -- Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the most widely used scanning software in the world, has released its latest version 8.4.46 - with full support for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. There is also support for five new Epson scanners. VueScan has now been downloaded more than 5 million times.
"Many of our users are Apple Mac users, and use their scanners quite frequently. It is important to them that we upgrade frequently, and that all of the 750 scanners that we support are kept up to date with latest releases." says Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software. " Most recently, we have been getting new customers from users of Leopard and Windows Vista, since many vendor scanner drivers don't work on Leopard and Windows Vista. New customers also buy VueScan because it provides higher quality scans and has many more features than the software that comes with most scanners."
"We work closely with the major scanner manufacturers, since they realise that their own software does not meet all their customer requirements. No other company in the world supports as many scanners as we do, as a result VueScan has been downloaded more than 5 million times, and our customer base is increasing by more than 20% per year"
VueScan is available for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. VueScan offers a full range of advanced features; including options for scanning faded slides and prints and automatically adjusting images to optimum color balance that reduces the need to manually do it in Photoshop. It includes built-in IT8 color calibration of scanners, producing colors that look true to life, batch scanning and other advanced and powerful scanning and productivity features, including PDF output.
