PerfectView for ViewScan 4

ST PerfectView is a powerful new tool for microfilm researchers that streamlines the browsing, scanning and saving of information. Quickly read headlines without waiting for the image to refresh and become clear. Easily crop the article or scan the entire page. Each scan is then saved into the Image Ribbon (formerly known as the Image Bin). The Image Ribbon stores the scans during the session and can be recalled at any time. It can also be resized and enlarged to see the details not seen in the thumbnail. Once scanned the image can be saved in many different digital formats and shared to multiple locations including, email, Google Drive, Dropbox, USB, or sent to any network printer.
