Understandably, things do not move as quickly in this area compared to say during the previous decade, but this might be worth the wait? Apart from being compatible with a very wide range of scanners from different brands, many cameras can also have their Raw files go through the SilverFast workflow. In addition, the software is compatible with the latest computer OS. For the LaserSoft web site: Click Here. Here is the announcement of the next generation Silverfast software:

LaserSoft Imaging announces SilverFast 8 – best Scanner Software featuring a World‘s First

SilverFast, the most popular scanner software in the world, is released as brand-new version SilverFast 8. After many successful years, SilverFast will be available completely renewed towards the end of August for the most important scanners of all major manufacturers. With the powerful new SilverFast software images can be created, edited and brought to perfection easily. The patent-pending WorkflowPilot featuring a world‘s first is just one of many new developments that bring significant advantages for the user.

The WorkflowPilot is a core element of the new software. As a kind of assistant, it guides the user in the correct order through all processing steps required for his individual workflow. In this way you turn your analog originals into convincing scans easily, because all complex operations become a child’s play for the user.

The SilverFast Real-Time Preview Concept allows to check the results of any adjusted setting anytime and immediately. Also new and up to date is the graphical user interface, on which the user can quickly and easily find all important controls and features. SilverFast 8 supports Multi-Tasking and the latest 64bit hardware and is therefore extremely fast and efficient.

SilverFast 8 is compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP, and runs natively on Mac OS X systems from version 10.5 (including 10.7 Lion). 32bit computers will be supported as well as 64bit systems.

Until the end of the 2011, LaserSoft Imaging will offer a free upgrade to SilverFast 8 to all customers who will purchase or have purchased a copy of SilverFast version 6.6 after June 1st. This offer is naturally also valid for SilverFast versions bundled with a scanner device or purchased from a dealer.
