    VueScan says it supports Apple silicon. Have been using their software for years, Might be worth a try. https://www.hamrick.com/blog/vuescan...e-silicon.html

    Epson has a separate scan program called Epson Scan 2 for Apple. The regular Epsonscan is for Windows computers.

    Thanks very much I will look into these options. Have no interest in the Hamrick option as that carries a monthly fee.

    Thanks very much Bill, I believe the Hamrick option carries a monthly fee, I only scan for social media use, never make D prints so the fee aspect is a no go. Appreciate your feedback, SS

    Wrong

    Hamrick is lifetime, he has younger family to carry on

    So far it has made every obsolete and au currant scanner work

    I bought it years ago

    Kent,

    Thank you for your kind comments about my teaching and work. I am also familiar with your work with collotype, though I did not make a connection earlier. It is wonderful to see the continuing interest in old historical phtograhic processes such as carbon as well as gravure work such as collotype and gravure.

    I donít think so. I paid for Vuescan once years ago and have been using it ever since on an even older Epson, even got a free new code when I got a new computer.

    Edit: checked out the page and now I remember. I just bought the lifetime once and done, several years ago. But you definitely can do that instead of monthly. Totally worth it to me.

    You may also be mixing me up with Kent Kirby who wrote the book on collotype. I'm just a humble artist/printmaker/photographer. (I did write a technical paper on film matrix collotype for Tamarind Papers years ago)

    I've been experimenting with old processes since I learned cyanotype in 1980-81 in San Francisco. Also learned photogravure at the same time. A student and I made an oven and used Arnold Hassan's book to make our first collotype on gelatin on glass while I was teaching at the old California College of Arts and Crafts.

    I would be doing more carbon transfer (I love the look) but I haven't seemed to be able to make the right color tissue I want - a black/red). I have built an 11x14" camera so I can get actual size negatives for my collotypes!

    All the Best, Kent

    If you've had the scanner for a decade then you probably need to clean the optics. That includes the back of the scanner glass and the mirrors. That could easily account for the lack of sharpness.
