Scanning is backwards


I just got my scanner yesterday and had the same problem with my FIRST jpg. I looked for a solution and found your posting. I had scanned one page of the instruction booklet from the center fold outwards, not in the direction of the text, but rather sideways across it. That image was mirrored. I did another scan in the 'proper' direction, that is, from the top of the page to the bottom, both as a jpg and a PDF and they came out in a normal, readable form. Perhaps you need to do it a few times if you haven't already? Have you tried calibrating it?

How do you scan?


Open the Applications folder on the hard disk on which MP Navigator is installed, then open the Canon Utilities folder and double-click the navicon.gif MP Navigator 3.0 icon. MP Navigator opens.
2. Point to Scan/Import and click 'Photos/Documents (Platen)'.

3. Place the document face-down on the platen glass, and select 'Document Type'.
How to place the document and Document Type depends on the document to be scanned.

How to place the document
Allow 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen glass and the document.
Align a corner of the document with the corner at the arrow of the platen.

  • When you select Color Photo or Black and White Photo, the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly if you do not leave 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen glass and the document.
  • When you select Color Photo or Black and White Photo, the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, select Document Size such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned.
  • When you select Magazine(Color), the Descreen function will be enabled and scanning takes longer than usual. To reset the Descreen function, disable Descreen in the Scan Settings dialog box.

4. Click 'Specify'... and set the preferences as required.
The Scan Settings Dialog Box opens. Specify the Document Size and Scanning Resolution.

  • When Document Size is Auto Detect or Auto Detect(Multiple Documents), the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, select Document Size, such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned.
5. Click 'Scan'.
Scanning will begin.
When the document has been scanned, the scanned image is displayed in the Thumbnail List area.

You have two options for scanning text. You may explore both of them and see which is better for you. Either way, you will have to make friends with manually changing the scanning settings, because simple presets often are not suited for every case.

First is to use Grayscale mode, and a minimum resolution of 200dpi. This should give you satisfactory text quality. If you want to print the text afterwards, 300dpi would be even better. You may want to increase contrast, to get the letters more defined and eliminate most of the background toning.

Second is to use Black and White (monochrome) mode, but in this case you need to set the resolution higher, preferrably to 600dpi. Also in this case you will have to play with the Black/White threshold in order to eliminate background "dirt" appearing as black artefacts.

If you scan the documents in order to process them with OCR software, usually the OCR application will give you suggestions on how to set the scanning parameters to obtain good results.

How do I scan documents to word. I'm only able to do photos with Picasa using new HP C4600 all in one printer


You must use OCR to do that, OCR means Optical Character Recognition, first you must scan the hard copy and save it as TIFF format and run through OCR reader, take note that convertion is not perfect, you still have to edit words that are not read correctly. You can download OCR reader on this link: http://finereader.abbyy.com/?gclid=CK6C96aflZ4CFRgbawodiDZ2oQ
