Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

4 Answers

I have recently bought a Plustek Optic 7200 scanner as I have 100's of Kodachrome slides that I wish to load onto my PC.Alas the Quickscan gives very poor results - the pics have an overall grey/blue cast - nothing like the original.The Silverfast programme that comes with the scanner looks as if you need a Ph.D to use it. Is there a preset programme somewhere buried in over 400 pages of instructions?

    My system is a Microsoft XP. My printer is a Canon Pixma iP4200. I also use U-lead Photo impact 5BE which I find very user friendly.
    For scanning colour prints I use HP Scanjet 3570c. reprinting via the Canon printer is excellent, The HP is Quite Ok for all purposes EXCEPT colour slides. That is why I bought a high resolution scanner!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Have you considered using a different scanning program, VueScan? You can download a demo/trial version here and determine which would be easier to use.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Hi!

You can use the AI package for the Plustek(for silverfast) - the menu is pretty easy to navigate here and it will be a lot easier for you to use this.

My Plustek optic pro st 19 scanner is not compatible with Microsoft windows 7 ultimate program..where can i get a free download of the driver?


This is an old scanner, no Win7 driver has been made for it by Plustek. You will have to buy a new scanner or install XP Mode in Win7 and load the scanner in it.
