Coming soon: SilverFast 8

July 20th, 2011 · 5 Comments · News, OSX, Scanner, SilverFast

SilverFast, the most popular scanner software in the world, will be 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 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 Intel Mac OS X systems from version 10.5 (including 10.7 Lion). 32bit computers will be supported as well as 64bit systems.

Until the 31st of March 2012, 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, as soon as it is available. This offer is naturally also valid for SilverFast versions bundled with a scanner device or purchased from a dealer.

Update: Any SilverFast software purchased prior to June 1st will benefit from significant pricebreaks of up to 50% when upgrading from an earlier SilverFast version to SilverFast 8.

    There’s not much here regarding the differences between 6.6 and 8.0. Also no mention of availability / price of upgrade for older users of 6.6.

  • Michael W. Gray

    Cool. So what new features can we look forward to as far as scanning capabilities? Is there any major improvements in image processing?

  • Christian Gregoire

    There will be discounted upgrade prices for SilverFast users. The look and feel of SilverFast is completely redeveloped by implementing a new GUI. The WorkflowPilot is the main improvement for the user.
    More info to come…

    I currently have Version 6.6 SE, if I upgrade to 6.6 AI right now, do I get the upgrade to 8 AI for free?

  • Jan

    Yes, that’s correct. Current 6.6 will not operate under Lion though, just in case.
