       sane-pieusb   -   SANE   backend   for   USB-connected   PIE   PowerSlide   and   Reflecta
       DigitDia/CrystalScan/ProScan slide scanners


       The sane-pieusb library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that  provides
       access to USB-connected PIE and Reflecta slide scanners.
       At present, the following scanners should work with this backend:

       Model:                    Status
       ------------------------- ------
       PIE PowerSlide 3600       Untested
       PIE PowerSlide 3650       Untested
       PIE PowerSlide 4000       Untested
       PIE PowerSlide 5000       Untested
       Reflecta CrystalScan 7200 Untested
       Reflecta ProScan 4000     Untested
       Reflecta ProScan 7200     Untested
       Reflecta DigitDia 3600    Untested
       Reflecta DigitDia 4000    Untested
       Reflecta DigitDia 5000    Untested
       Reflecta DigitDia 6000    Ok


       Support  for  multiple  slide scanners (like the PowerSlide or DigitDia series) is done by
       auto-advancing ('Advance slide' setting) the slide after each scan.

       However, for best results, it is recommended to do a preview for every  slide  since  this
       sets gamma, brightness, and contrast to optimal values.

       Attention: SANE does not have an automatic landscape/portrait detection and re-orientation
       when scanning multiple slides. You have to put all slides into one orientation first !


       If available, sane-pieusb supports infrared scans for dirt  detection  and  removal.  This
       must be enabled via the 'Clean image' setting.


       The  sane-pieusb  backend  supports dirt removal based on infrared scan information. Since
       SANE does not provide post-processing in the backend, sane-pieusb does  the  scanning  and
       dirt  removal  during  the  setup  phase.  The  'scan'  phase is only used to transfer the
       completed image.  Therefore sane-pieusb does not multi-thread making  a  typical  frontend
       appear as 'blocked'. Also cancel requests are only honored between scans.


              If  the  library was compiled with debug support enabled, this environment variable
              controls the debug level for this backend.  E.g., a value of 128 requests all debug
              output to be printed.  Smaller levels reduce verbosity.

              level   debug output

               0       nothing
               1       errors
               2       warnings & minor errors
