KIEL, Germany, December 3 /PRNewswire/ -- LaserSoft Imaging(R) releases SilverFast(R) 6.6.0r4, a powerful update for Canon scanner users. The new release features a significant quality boost while delivering much faster scans. In contrast to the Canon's own software, SilverFast(R) comes with famous highlights such as SilverFast Multi Exposure(R), special Kodachrome profiles and Multi-Processor capability. Outstanding productivity comes from the implementation of SilverFast's iSRD(R) for optimum infrared-based dust and scratch removal.

SilverFast Multi-Exposure(R) increases dynamic range of Canon scanners significantly. This means more image details and less noise in scans. Independent research has shown that by using Multi-Exposure the number of grayscales that the scanner can differentiate increases from 776 up to 4,169 (Canon 8600F).

SilverFast iSRD(R) is the perfect dust and scratch remover. iSRD can work fully automatic but is also fully user adjustable regarding its strength and effect.

Special Kodachrome profiles for Canon Scanner help to scan Kodachrome slides with brilliant colors and maximum dynamic range.

The new SilverFast release for Canon scanner reduces the effective time for scans with dust and scratch removal function dramatically. This is achieved by fully using the power of Duo- and Multi-Core processors and optimum workflows.
