Larry's suggestion does work - I just tried it. Scan files created by
VueScan are sublaunched in Photoshop (or the application designated in
File Exchange control panel). Furthermore, double-clicking on the files
will open them in the same designated application.
But these files are created with generic file attributes: file type
'BINA' and creator type '????'. So the files have no icons, and if they
are moved to another Mac, the user might not be able to open them with a
I'm also wondering if disabling QuickTime Exchange option has other
consequences, whether this breaks the file/viewer mappings for some kinds
of net-borne content.
My preference would still be for VueScan to do this the proper way, by
setting the desired file attributes, or (if there is a way) for VueScan
to force Mac OS to set those attributes.
