PRESS RELEASE: VueScan 8.4.60 Fully Supports Skew Correction
New version automatically straightens originals.
PHOENIX, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 19, 2008 -- Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the world's most widely used 3rd party scanning software, has released its latest version 8.4.60 -- which now includes support for skew correction. This means that any document or photo that has been placed in the scanner slightly askew (rotated) can now be straightened from within VueScan, and without the need to physically rotate the document or image and then rescanning.
"Many of our users are high volume users, and it is annoying to them when a document or a photo is slightly rotated. VueScan is used by many people for speed, and having to physically rotate their document or image can cost much time. Skew correction allows them make the changes from within VueScan, and therefore saves them frustration and time. We have made this change after many requests from our users," says Ed Hamrick, President of Hamrick Software. "Most recently, we have seen growth in the document scanning marketplace and we expect this trend to continue. We think that this feature will be very useful for our customers, as it is not widely available with other scanning software. By supporting over 750 scanners, we support more scanners than any other company. Many people use document feeders with VueScan, so skew correction is a critical feature."
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.
