But unfortunately the Linocolor software has one big flaw: there's no way to export the raw 48bit scan! I think this is a big failing of supposedly high-end scanning software. I'd like to archive hi-bit images for the day when editing them becomes the norm - I don't want to have to scan them again in the future. Fortunately, the UMAX software will work with the Linotype product, so you can have the best of both worlds - the very capable Linocolor software and the less capable but able to output a hi-bit file MagicScan.
