Miami, FL -- June 24, 2016 - Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the world's most widely used scanning software, has announced that VueScan now supports over 3000 scanners from 35 manufacturers.

Ed Hamrick, the President of Hamrick Software, says “We released VueScan in 1998 when it supported just a few scanners. We have been adding new scanners regularly every year since then, as well as constantly upgrading VueScan with new features, and we are delighted to reach the 3000 mark 18 years later.”

VueScan now supports over 3000 scanners from 35 manufacturers in a combination of 3 operating systems, Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

“Our latest version is VueScan 9.5.51, which adds support for 30 new Brother scanners” says Ed Hamrick. “We release new versions regularly, often with new scanners supported but it can also be feature improvements or new product enhancements. But our model has always been the same - to implement customer suggestions, maintain product quality and increase the number of supported scanners. Also, a Professional Edition license is for life and will support up to 4 computers. We believe that this has greatly assisted us in achieving over 10 million downloads and having over 500,000 customers. “

VueScan is only available on-line, and can be fully tested for free before purchase. It is easy to use for both beginners and professional users. Beginners only need to run VueScan and press the 'Scan' button. Pro users can change to either the 'Standard' or 'Professional' options to unlock powerful features to have complete control over their scans.

VueScan also offers a full range of advanced features; including batch scanning and multi-page PDF output, 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.) VueScan also includes built-in IT8 color calibration of scanners, producing colors that look true to life, and other advanced and powerful scanning and productivity features.

VueScan is available in two editions, Standard Edition ($49.95 USD) and Professional Edition ($99.95). The Professional Edition supports film scanning, adds unlimited free upgrades for life, advanced IT8 color calibration and support for raw scan files. Multi-user licenses are available. Both versions offer an easy to use one-stop ‘Scan’ button.
