VueScan alternatives or free scanner software

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I am trying to scann something on my Mac with a Canon Lide 30, but the software from Canon on the website seems to e really old, and I cannot find the CD for the Scanner.

 

I tried VueScan and it seems really great but a bit on the pricey side from what I want to do.

Isn't there a free Scanner Software that comes with the Mac?

I thought Prevew might be able to Scan.

 

Anybdoy know of any alternatives to VueScan, for just scanning in some images?

 

Thanks

I have the same scanner and if you install that crappy canon software make sure to go into the boot items and remove the things it adds otherwise your computer won't sleep. Aside form that I hope someone gives a good answer. I figured I would just buy a new scanner if I ever needed one on a regular basis.
