When I first switched to Macs several years ago, I decided to buy VueScan from Hamrick Software. This turned out to be a great decision. VueScan works as promised. It is a rock-solid scanning package with a lot of options. It does not take the middle road and simply provide a base set of features for all supported scanners (of which there are many). My scanner has a transparency option and it supported that automatically.
