RE: filmscanners: VueScan Histogram
It reminds me of the "Insight wars" Polaroid was beaten up mercilessly for
not having histograms and not just any histogram, it had to have the little
sliders on the bottom like Photoshop.
When I asked for new features Histograms was ALWAYS on the top of the list.
Shit, Ed's getting off easy!!!!!! :)

Poor Ed. He can't win. Anything he does, no matter how many wanted it, some
others will express disappointment. Personally, I like a histogram, and
feel it helps me understand an image, and helps me improve it. And, on the
current 7.3 versions, if I let VS have the whole screen, I get a very nice
big image in the preview.
My only complaint is that I have found the Clean function less effective
than it used to be with my PC-based LS-30. I have no idea why.
