It depends. I always try to get images out of Vuescan in a shape not
requiring any digital postprocessing, especially if I have many images
of a temporary values, such as a trip documentary.

But in every case, if you scan in 48bit mode and e.g. postprocess
24bit files, the gamma adjustment in Vuescan might deliver better
results because you would operate on a much finer range of values.

Yes and No, Vuescan is a standalone application but it may invoke
an external viewer after every scan. You might use the Adobe
Photoshop for that purpose.

The only but a bit terse manual is than available in *.html format
via the Help menu. Previous versions of the doc were supporting
the Windows help format, but Ed has probably decided to stick to
the one and universal HTML format.
