This package contains frontends to SANE ("Scanner Access Now Easy"), including xscanimage, xcam, and scanadf. Xscanimage is a GTK-based application for scanning images that can also be used as a GIMP-plugin. Xcam is used to get images from cameras supported by SANE. Scanadf is a command line frontend especially suited for scanners equipped with automatic document feeders (ADF).
