Didn’t know that. And now I have zapped it. It was whatever you get when you download drivers from the Epson site.

I've just read through VueScan's online user manual and it looks to me a lot more capable and flexible than my version of SilverFast. Are you getting better scans now? Did you go for the standard or pro edition?
I got the Standard edition. Meant to get the Pro, but when the screens cleared, I discovered it was the Standard. Figured I could upgrade at any time.

As for whether I am getting better scans, I don’t know. The way I used the Epson thingie, I neutralized as much as I could (no sharpening, for example) so that I could use Photoshop as needed.

But I only scanned one thing, my sprig of herb that I was trying to identify. Not exactly many tests, and not exactly standard use, either.
