I'm not overly happy with the UI for interfacing with the scanner on my Epson WF-3250 series scanner that's provided by the latest Preview that comes with OS X 10.10. It's clunky and awkward, crashes often. You have to reselect your options every time you use.

It's just, honestly, not very Apple-like.

Is there reliable third party scanning software that I could use in place of Preview for obtaining PDF scans of multi-page documents on the Epson's auto-feeder?

Edit: With OS X 10.9, Epson stopped shipping its own scanner utility. The ship a driver and instructions to use Preview for acquiring images on OS X.

You may also want to look into the excellent VueScan. I haven't had a need for it in several years but back in the day it was really one of the best there is. Looks like it is still updated regularly.

PDFScanner from the app store is awesome. Very fast. Simple. Achieves small file sizes.

You might try Paperless. It retains the options across scans, and can do multi-page etc.

(And, relevant to the ADF):

  • Paperless will display the Image Capture dialog.
  • If the ADF is supported by Image Capture, the dialog will display Feeder as an option to acquire with.
  • Choosing Scan will cause all pages in the ADF to be scanned.
  • All scan jobs (multipage documents) scanned before choosing Done will be imported into Paperless as separate multipage documents.
