Personally if I want a real HQ scan I use Photoshop, it really is the best. On a day to day basis I use Jasc Software's Paint Shop Pro. It really is good and I have a nice script for full page mag scans that gives very nice results.

Cheers,

I use "VueScan" software for scanning and Photoshop for everything else. Older copies of these programs work just fine for this type of work. Buy an old mac from the 90's for a few bucks, you can find some cheap or free software for the classic os9 software and get a 8.5 x 14, legal size scanner. This software is the same as new software, if all you want to do is this kind of stuff. The basic guts in Photoshop really hasn't changed all that much. Good luck.

It depends on what you want to do with the scan. If you are happy with just a few basic adjustments, then any editing program will suit your needs. If you want to have the best, then it's Photoshop. Yes it is expensive, but it will do whatever you need it to do.

If you'd like to have Photoshop but don't want to spend the big bucks to get it, find a friend or relative that's in college and have them buy the student version at their college bookstore. The student version costs less than $200 and it's the same as the full version. The only difference between the regular version and the student version is that with the student version, you can't transfer the license to someone else. That means you can't sell it....as if anyone would want to.

Photoshop can be as complex or as simple as you want it to be. You can just use a few features and tools, or you can use it's more in depth features. The thing about PS is that you can always use more of it when you need to.

I don't think anyone knows everything there is to know about PS, so you can learn what it can do at your own pace. I started out with version 3 and I'm up to version 10 (CS3), although I still mostly use version 7.

Anyway, if you want the best, it's PS.....if you are happy with what you are now using, then that is the right program for you.

Default Corel Paint Shop Pro

Hi all - for editing I've been using Corel Paint Shop Pro X for ever (for scanning I still use the clunky HP scanning program that came with my scanner, and for stitching Arcsoft Panorama Maker 3), however, now that Windows 7 and 8 are upon us, I'm thinking about updating or replacing PSP with something that can utilize Windows 7 (on my laptop - desktop at home still running XP) and beyond. Obvious choice is Paint Shop Pro X5. Does anyone have any feedback? Impression from Corel website is that X5 is more attuned to photos than scans and [porno]graphic projects!

Things I do most often: crop, straighten, adjust colour and brightness, copy, cut and paste, paste two images onto a blank background to create a merged double page image, resize, save as jpeg (I always work in tifs).

I also have Photoshop CS3, but it never really took off for me - I kept going back to PSPX.

Any and all feedback welcome, scan-meisters! Cheers, Rip
