Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
VueScan is the world's most widely used software interface for digitizing film and prints on flatbed and film scanners. This powerful yet affordable program supports over 1500 scanners and 321 digital camera RAW file types, and is available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.
Much more than a simple scanner program, VueScan allows you to perform functions such as color restoration, adding sharpening filters, adjusting white balance, rotating images, and batch scanning multiple images. It also provides output to a variety of formats including TIFF, JPEG, and searchable PDF files (even all three simultaneously). The Pro version outputs to the RAW format and provides options for color adjustments, and more.
Despite its popularity, the documentation for VueScan does not provide enough information to use the full power of the system and makes it difficult to get started. The VueScan Bible is the missing manual for new, experienced, and prospective users of VueScan.
Biografía del autor
Sascha Steinhoff is a computer expert by training and a photographer by passion. He used several rainy seasons in Galway, Ireland to learn everything he needed to know about scanners and scanning software. He soon realized that a good scan requires as much work and know-how as a good camera shot, and that a scanning workflow is essential to get the job done efficiently.
Sascha recently gave up his position as an editor of a leading German technical magazine to move to Bangkok, Thailand, where he is currently working as a freelance journalist and project manager.
Complementary information about the scanning techniques described in this book, as well as as a place where Sascha will reply to inquiries, can be found on his website at http://scanguru.info.

After reading the book over, my impression of it is that this is ideal for those new to Vuescan and scanning. The first half of the book introduces the reader to scanning with information on Vuescan interspersed within the text. Chapter 7 onwards starts getting interesting as workflow information is suggested for several typical media types. These workflows though aren't as much a discussion of advanced workflow options or trade-offs, or suggestions on how various Vuescan settings might affect/improve/detract from the desired output for the selected media type, rather it is a cookbook style step-by-step instruction on how to scan. In my opinion everything in the first seven chapters of this book can be easily found on the Hamrick site or via a quick survey of various online sources on scanning. What I did find very useful were Chapters 8 through 13 - chapters with reference information on each option in Vuescan. These chapters provide detailed information on the various settings as well as the author's insights. These are useful and are something that I find myself going back to occasionally.
To conclude, I think this is a great book for beginners to scanning or Vuescan, but those already versed with the Vuescan or advanced "scanners" might be better off elsewhere.
My interest is in getting scans of prints on a Canoscan 9000F Mark II and scans of color negatives using a Nikon Coolscan V. The VueScan Bible is just what I needed. In addition to its thorough discussion of how to scan prints and film, the book refers specifically to the Nikon Coolscan film scanners and to the Canoscan, so if you own either one, you'll get an extra bit of help. The book is about as clear as a software manual can be, which is to say that there are a few times when you have to re-read something in order to get it -- or maybe even re-re-read it, although that's rare.
The last half of the book is devoted to explaining what all of the menu tabs and option in VueSCan do. You don't need to know all of that, but it's very nice to have it all there so you can get to the parts you do need to know for your particular application -- prints, slides, negatives, documents, etc.
[If you're reading this because you're thinking of getting VueScan, well, do it! The software recognizes just about any scanner on earth and it adapts its menus to your particular scanner. If you have more than one scanner, it lets you work with the same sensible, comprehensive interface on all of them.]
This manual is very complete and I've discovered a lot of features in VueScan that I was totally unaware of. I think Sascha Steinhoff probably knows scanning and digital photography as well as most. However the sub title "Everything You Need to Know for Perfect Scanning" is a bit of a reach. He shows you the meaning of all of the buttons and features of VueScan -- which is what a manual should do. But to say that the manual tells me "All I Need to Know About Perfect Scanning" -- not really. So if you need a complete manual for VueScan, do buy this book. Just don't expect to come away from your reading a "Scanning Expert".
