Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies

Good quality scanner

  • The resolution must be good at the start.Scanner at 300 dpi.
  • Well supported on the scanner cover, and possibly places a black cloth over.
  • Make sure the other parameters of the scanner, such depth (max), descreening (if you have removed the blur!).
  • Then, in general, with photoshop or other software, you must start by reducing the brightness. Possibly slightly increase the contrast.
    For colors, we must work with the levels (histogram).

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord


hi
Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    how to adjust the resolution to 300 DPI on an


    If you are scanning, you should be able to set the resolution (DPI x DPI) in the scanner configuration. If it is blurry, it could be that the default scan resolution is lower (10 dpi or even 75 dpi).
    Settings location will depend on the scanner and software used.

    Best scan at an equal (300 dpi) or even higher resolution, so you can scale the image afterwards without quality loss.

    Scanning Size


    Do not try to change the scan size, change the resolution. The window that appears when you want to scan should have a resolution (DPI) area that can be changed. IE: 300 DPI to 800 DPI. This changes the picture size.
