Silverfast came bundled with my Nikon scanner, and as far as I know it's
bundled with all the new ones - for Europe at least. It is by far the best
of all the scanning programs - very sophisticated, but easy for a tyro like
me to use.

I was so impressed that I got Silverfast software for my Microtek E6
flatbed scanner as well. Superior to Scanwizard, and operates in exactly
the same way as for the Nikon. They do it for a lot of other scanners too.

Nice people to deal with too - I had a few extension conflict problems on
my Mac which they sorted out quickly and for free.
