I had this old scanner laying around and found the need to scan some old photos. Of course I could take a picture of the picture using a 10MP digital camera, but somehow that isn't as pretty or convenient as just scanning.
Apparently I didn't search well enough for OS X scanner support last time I wanted to scan something. If you go looking for support for your old trusted Windows scanner after you've migrated to OS X, you may run into the same trouble I got myself in. Fortunately open source developers have provided the world with a set of drivers for OS X that enables your old trusted scanner under OS X. W00T!
Developers of TWAIN SANE: THANKS!
