Since I installed NikonScan 3.1 I haven't had any problems with its TWAIN 
module. When used stand-alone it may have memory problems. The integrated 
curves and histograms dialog is the best I've ever seen in any graphics 
application. The version at Nikon's European site is more complete than the 
one at their US site. It includes a utility named regsweeper.exe which 
should be used before installing ver. 3.1.

I didn't use Nikon's throwaway IEEE1394 board because I already had an 
Adaptec 1394 card installed for DV capture. The Adaptec card is much more 
robust and I'm guessing that it won't cause any conflicts. I suspect that 
some reported conflicts are due to the Nikon card. The Adaptec doesn't need 
any drivers or installation routine because Windows 2000 recognizes it 
automatically, probably the same for Win9x also.

Even if you don't do much retouching work the following book will be 
invaluable for unraveling Photoshop and all its features in a practical and 
very complete way:
