The default software that comes with the Epson scanner is great for
everything but the negatives I want to scan. The sizes they let you
select for the negatives don't match the negatives I am working with.
So instead of seeing 8 separate pictures it sees 6.
I downloaded Vuescan from 'VueScan Scanning Software'
) and it at least lets you scan the whole
negatives strip. I then can select each individual picture and do a
final scan. It's slower this way, but at least I don't miss any
The default software is faster and would be great if it was able to
detect the size of each negative. When I am just scanning photos though
it does detect each picture, separate em, and perform the color
restoration on each. I am scanning really old pictures and negatives
from 1960 to 1980.
The scanner itself is wonderful. It uses LED's instead of bulbs to
generate the light. So there is no warm up time. Much faster than
using most other scanners. The negatives/slide holder is flimsy though.
It seems easy to break.
