RE: filmscanners: Silverfast or Polarscan
I've downloaded the Macintosh version of Vuescan, and
tried to use it, and I'm getting a memory error. It says
that it needs 91mb of memory to run? I have 160mb (just
ordered 128mb more - will have that in a few days).
Am I doing something wrong? I wouldn't think that it
would need this much memory just to load the software.
Thanks for all the help!
