xsane can be run as a stand-alone program or through the GIMP image

manipulation program.  In stand-alone mode, xsane can save an image

to a file in a variety of image formats, serve as a frontend to a

fax program, or send an image to a printer.

SANE stands for "Scanner Access Now Easy" and is an application

programming interface (API) that provides standardized access to any

raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner, hand-held scanner,

video- and still-cameras, frame-grabbers, etc.). The SANE standard is

free and its discussion and development are open to everybody. The

current source code is written to support several operating systems,

including GNU/Linux, OS/2, Win32 and various Unices and is available

under the GNU General Public License (commercial applications and

backends are welcome, too, however).
