UNIX Scanning Software for HP ScanJets
tummy.com, ltd. has announced XVScan Version 1.22, which adds
scanner-level gamma correction to the interactive X11 scanning
and image manipulation program XVScan.
XVScan works under Linux, HP-UX 9.x, 10.x and FreeBSD with HP ScanJet series
scanners. XVscan is based on xv, image manipulation software for X
Windows. It handles 24-bit color, 8-bit greyscale and 1-bit monochrome
XVScan supports many image formats including GIF, JPEG, TIFF (compressed
and uncompressed), PostScript (requires ghostscript), PBM/PGM/PPM (raw
and ascii), X11 Bitmap, XPM (X PixMap), Sun Rasterfile, BMP, IRIS
Rasterfile, Targa (24-bit), and FITS (greyscale).
Scanner-level gamma correction will improve color scans by allocating
colors to capture a greater range of detail.
Also included in this release are numerous updates to the ScanJet API
which allows other applications to control an HP ScanJet scanner.
The list price for XVScan is $50 for ftp or email delivery, available on
3.5" floppies or 4mm DAT tape for an additional $15 in the United States
or $25 internationally.
