Snac - A graphical user interface for scanimage
Version: 0.95Snac is a small utility that was designed as a GUI for scanimage.
Operating System: Mac OS X
The program is small and limited in it's abilities, but it allows you scan a preview and to select an area from that preview to scan. You can also set the resolution and scanmode before scanning.
Setting up Snac for your scanner involves quite a few steps, but nothing really difficult. You will still need to use the terminal to some extent (or, if you prefer, you can download Snac and use the links provided in the helpfile).
After Snac is properly setup, the actual usage is simple. Note however that the canceling of a scan sometimes freezes the scanner.
· Start with making a preview by pressing the preview button (or command-P). The preview is scanned in the selected mode, with a resolution of 50 dpi (or the closest approximation) and using the full scannable area. When the preview is done, it will show up in the preview panel.
· Select the area you want to scan by dragging in the picture and press the Scan button (command-S).
· When the scan is complete, a save dialog will show up and when the picture is saved, it will open in the selected helper application if that option was checked.
