Vuescan works the other way around - it can't work as a Photoshop plugin, and it doesn't have TWAIN capability, so what you have to do is set up Vuescan to bring up Photoshop after the image is stored on disk (it's in the help menus).  You run Vuescan, scan the image, and when it's saved Vuescan kicks off Photoshop, and Photoshop loads the image from disk.  Not quite as fast, but it works fine.

And yes, Vuescan is better than any other scanning software I've used, except for its awkward (braindead?) GUI.  For me that includes Silverfast, Polaroid Insight, and Vistascan.  Hamrick is a scanner god.  As we've said before, all he needs is to marry a GUI god, and the package would be unbeatable.

Subject: [Leica] VueScan 6.6 query.

I have just upgraded to VueScan 6.6 and it is very good indeed, proving
to be better with my Nikon Coolscan LS-30 than the software supplied.
Does anyone know how it can be linked in with Photoshop so that it is in
the drop down menus and puts the scans straight into Photoshop? I am on
Version 6.
