Re: filmscanners: Linux version of Vuescan
I do a lot of my basic image processing with ImageMagick. I use gPhoto
to upload from my digital camera. I've written tcl/tk routines to turn
the images into digital photo albums. However, all my computers are Mac,
so I use LinuxPPC. If I had a LinuxPPC version of Vuescan, I would never
need to reboot. I asked Ed about a LinuxPPC version of VueScan a few
months ago. However, he didn't think the demand would be worth his time.
