    Open Source Windows

    • Works flawless under Win 10, recognized the flatbed-scanner in one click. Now I can edit the scan before storing it. Brightness, contrast, size or a crop. A huge improvement over the deeply hidden default WIA scanner in W10. And all this luxury in a portable tool that’s just 5.3Mb. It recognized my default language without asking. Great stuff.

Good but expensive scanning

This tool is the top notch scanning tool. It works well with 99% of scanners and have tons of futures. Price tag is quite hefty though - $39.95 for Standard, and $79.95 for professional version is far more then average user is willing to pay for "scanning tool".
