I have an HP Deskjet 3054. I'm scanning using Apple's Image Capture app, and am trying to set the bit-depth to something higher than the default as all of my images come into Photoshop as 8-bit.

I'd rather not have to pay for Vuescan, if there's a free alternative available.

It seems all the way back in '99 this was a question discussions.apple.com/thread/2028155?start=0&tstart=0. What scanner are you using, I assume it is a scanner? Have you been able to scan with higher bit depth with other software? – Alendri Oct 2 '12 at 19:04
    
HP Deskjet 3054. It seems VueScan allows scanning at higher bit depths but I would prefer to use free software. – Hugh Guiney Oct 2 '12 at 19:06
    
And you're not using the HP software because...? – user2719 Oct 2 '12 at 21:28

If I go to File > Import > Images from Device in Photoshop, it opens Image Capture. Also, there is no option to select bit depth in HP Scan 3 either. – Hugh Guiney Oct 3 '12 at 17:23
