A lot of people have scanners but the question I am always asked is about the seetings that should be used.
So what settings do you use for scanning various items when using your scanner.
- Images for the web , website or an application such as powerpoint – 72dpi
- Scanning for an inkjet printer 200dpi
- Scanning for professional printing such as a brochure – anywhere from 300dpi up to 1200dpi
- Colour photographs should be scanned at 24bit color not at 8bit or 256 colours as they may come out blotchy
The other setting to look out for is ,scan to , where you can say scan a page of text and send it to a word document for editing.
This uses OCR , optical character recognition.
The better the quality of the scan and the software will mean less editing to be done.
