: VueScan Alternative?

I've just upgraded to 10.8 and now my Canon LIDE80 scanner is incompatible with VueScan. I have confirmed this with Hamrick, so there's no hope there.

I checked, and that model is not supported by 10.8 either.

Can anyone recommend an alternative software or will I have to get a new scanner?

Thanks!

you could try this

I used to have a Canon Lide50 and used it with Preview okay. Don't know if that helps much though34985

I can't install the driver -- I get the message: "You can't open the application ScanGear CS Installer because Power PC applications are no longer supported."

That's where the trouble started.

Preview doesn't support the LIDE80, either.

I've resigned myself to the situation, and have decided to use my camera instead, for now.
