My grandfather recently purchased a new All-in-One laser printer, a Samsung CLX-2160, to replace his Epson Inkjet one.
Everything is great except that the scanning software provided by Samsung is awful, unlike the old program provided by Epson.
On the Epson one, all you did was open the program, press the scan button then it would scan the document, automatically detect what type of document it is, crop it appropriately and save it in his specified folder - all in one click of the mouse.
With the Samsung program, you have to do everything manually which he doesn't like and has trouble remembering what to do.
Does anyone know of any alternative software that could be used. He mainly scans photos but the ability to perform OCR too would be preferred, although not vital as he has Microsoft Document Scanner too.
Freeware is preferable but paying a small amount of money is acceptable.
I have searched using Google and given many of the programs returned a try but nothing yet has sufficed.
Yes, but when the imaging program accesses the scanner, does it not then use the software that the scanner is set up for? In the OP's case the selfsame software that is causing his granddad some bother.
The supplied software will have a 'Front end' with all sorts options, as in my Epson supplied software. However when accessed through the Image Editor/processor I simply get the Scanner Preview and Scan Windows- all the rest is bypassed
Apart from anything else VITA is another can of worms- with regard driver and software ompatibility. It may be that if the scanner and software works with VISTA the best route will be to knuckle down and get used to using what he has.
