my mum has an Epson Perfecion 1240U scanner which has a special function for scanning slides. She uses 10.5 and scanning slides is supported by the Epson software. She's thinking about upgrading to 10.7, the Epson webpage says Image Capture will support the scanner, but not the original Epson software. From what I've read on the web, the Image Capture scanning software appears to be good. I wonder, though, about scanning slides. Is it possible? Anyone? Experiences?

Advice would be great!

If the slide scanner is supported as another tray, it should be supported by Image Capture as a menu option. Like with a paper scanner you can select the plate or the automatic document feeder. Have you tried using Image Capture on 10.5 to see if the 10.5 version supports it?
