I've Never Donated Before
I know exactly why I made the dontation. (I've never made a donation to a site like this before; in fact, I've never seen a computer site that asked for donations.) I made the donation because of three things: (1) the very generous 50% discount, (2) the high quality of your backup article (which confirmed my earlier decision to buy Acronis True Image 8.0) which included observations about specific shortcomings in the software and (3) the winsome, gracious, candid tenor of your website generally and your request for financial support in particular. In other words, I made a small donation because you are who you are. Isn't that the way the world generally works? People hire you because of who you are, expressed largely by what you've already done. All the best to you in the months ahead.

Review: "Scanning - VueScan and Associates" Pt.I: Intro & Bookscanning

1VSOutputOptions.png
DC member brahman has posted a giant review on scanning using the software program VueScan:

"Since scanning became a minor hobby, I followed the development of VueScan for about 10 years -- occasionally (every couple of years) downloading the trial. This application has now reached a degree of maturity that I decided to do a deeper review for the DonationCoder community. Since VueScan in its expert mode can be quite daunting, some tutorial elements and walk throughs are included so that the reader can feel more at home even with some of the more obscure settings and get a very rich scanning experience out of VueScan. The more I worked on it the more I felt that the review should become even more holistic by also discussing selected software (like scanner utilities,  e-book post processing, and sharpening) and hardware (color calibration targets and monitor calibration devices) that I found over the years which really help a lot to produce great scans in the most effortless way. Then my review grew bigger and bigger - as is the nature of life - until I finally decided to split it in several parts, the first installment you will get to enjoy now."

Part I of the review tutorial deals with an introduction to VueScan, its features, document- and book scanning.

Part II to be published soon will discuss VueScan's color management, profiling, and raw scanning abilities plus more hints and tips and more great software that complements VueScan.
