Re: filmscanners: Acquiring images with VuePrint 7.7b, Pro/32 Edition & PhotoShop 5.0 with a Microtek Scanner



VuePrint and VueScan are different and separate programs - it sounds to me
like you have only VuePrint.  Go back to http://www.hamrick.com/vsm.html and
download "VueScan" - if you have paid the $40 to register VuePrint then
VueScan is already registered as well, and if you haven't then you will be
trying VueScan as a demo.

VuePrint is an image viewing and manipulation program and performs the same
functions as PhotoShop and in my case PhotoPaint.  VueScan is a scanning
program - it does *not* get images through the HP or Microtek TWAIN
software, it is a substitute for the TWAIN software and performs the scan
itself, and then saves the image as a .tif or .jpg image and, at your
option, further launches the graphics program of your choice, be it VuePrint
or PhotoShop or anything else, and opens the image in that graphics program.

Once you download and try out VueScan you will see what I mean.

P.S.  I'm not sure if VueScan will work with the HP but it should work with
the Microtek per the Help file.  IMHO you will find that VueScan does a
better job of scanning than the HP or Microtek software.

Also, it's not my list but my understanding is that plain text should be
used.

I have changed the subject heading to better describe this subject.

I assume you are opening VuePrint or Photoshop first and then using the

the image.  I am not familiar with the HP or Microtek software so I don't
know the answer to your question, but in my use of Corel PhotoPaint and the
Epson flatbed TWAIN it had the option in PhotoPaint to either close the
TWAIN after the scan or leave it open.  You may have such a setting in your
software.

Re the messages on the list, most I think are concerning Vuescan, which does
not use the scanner's TWAIN.  Using Vuescan, you would open Vuescan and make
your scans exporting them into PhotoShop or VuePrint at your option, and
Vuescan would meanwhile remain open until you choose to close it.

Thanks! I presume Vuescan and VuePrint are the same.  Is this correct?

I tried this with the Microtek scanner.  When I acquired the image, it
brought up the Microtek software.  I was able to work with the image in
VuePrint with the Microtek software active.  I could not do this PhotoShop
5.0.  With PhotoShop, it brought up the the Microtek software, but I had to
close it in order to work with the image.

You mentioned an option of exporting to PhotoShop or VuePrint, I did not
find an option for doing this.  Perhaps, there is something I overlooked.  I
did move the image with copy and paste to a new blank image window setup  in
Photo Shop.

As I have said before, I am new to scanning.  I am in a learning mode.

Working with flatbed scanners...HP ScanJet IIC & Microtek SlimScan C6...with
the HP & Microtek bundled software...using both VuePrint Pro_32 and
Photoshop 5.0, when I scan, I have to close out the HP or Microtek software
to work with the image.

Am I overlooking something?  Can I work differently with other scanners?  If
so, which ones?

Can I scan directly into VuePrint Pro_32 or Photoshop 5.0 with different
settings or different scanners?

This seems to be the case from some of the messages that I read on the list,
but I have not figured out how to do this with my scanners.
