The software itself is written by a Danish company called VueScan, Inc. In an Oct 2015 review, it was one of the top rated freeware image editing and scanning software programmes, with a 4.25-star rating from more than 20,000 user reviews at the time. User reviews vary in trustworthiness, however, with the most recent 5-star review on Jan 2017 being over 2,000 pages long. The review also listed some bugs which exist in vue version 188.8.131.521. The program also contains options which allow users to remove the shadows on pictures and also to zoom in and out in any scan. The software is available for Microsoft Windows, Linux and macOS. VueScan can also be used as a scanner using various operating systems like Windows, OS X, and Linux.
Each scanner has different user interface and displays scanning options. Some scanners have a logical way of displaying status, such as showing the image on a preview window, while other scanners may display more status information on a single window. The program has a list of supported cameras. If a scan uses a proprietary format, VueScan creates a plug-in that converts the proprietary format to a different format supported by the program. Although this may result in a slight loss of quality, it is generally acceptable for scanning old film. A plug-in can also read a scanned negative using the paper mode. Regular scanning is supported by most available scanners. VueScan can save scanned files and images in the EXIF format (by default), TIFF and JPEG. Image processing is best with JPEG files and the best quality can be achieved by processing raw TIFF files. VueScan can also read images in the RAW format. The format currently supported is TIFF (Tagged Image File Format). VueScan can be also used as a stand-alone low-end scanner. With VueScan you can open RAW, TIFF, JPEG and EOG (Enhanced Tagged Image Format) images directly from disc. d2c66b5586
