Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 600F Flatbed Scanner

5 Answers

Old photos scan great into folder on Mac but appear black when transfered to IPhoto on m

I am scanning old photos into my MacBook 2.0GHz 160GB as JPEGs at 300 dpi, 8 bit using Image Capture. The photos appear fine as long as they are in the folder I scanned them into. I can burn them to a CD just fine. But I need them in IPhoto and when transferred to IPhoto all the thumbnails appear black as well as the photos. When I click on the photos, however, the images do appear. I have scanned the B/W photos in as B/W as well as in color format, Generic RGB, sRGB, Adobe RGB, Color LCD which are my options. It does not appear to make a difference. The only successful photos to transfer were a modern day 4x6 color photo and the B/W photos I changed to JPEG-2000. Any ideas about what is going wrong? It is becoming very frustrating and my project is on hold until I can solve this problem. Thanks so much for any help. Carrie

This is a driver problem on your scanner if you can just do an update for the scanner driver or if not you can also uninstall and reinstall the software for your scanner and that should fix this problem...

Sounds like something wrong with the software, try opening the pictures in the windows picture viewer, and if they are fine, reinstall the graphic software.

Try scanning the color document with default scanning options and see how it comes out.

    this is about scanner to mac compatibility..which is why the images are blacked out on the screen..the
    files are evidently there, just need to sort out the integration aspects ..

How to have white background on small documents


All areas outside of the document will be black only. I don't know how you were getting white background.
If you want white background around your scanned image, a) stick the check (in this example) onto a white paper and scan the whole sheet. Ensure double detection is off. b) You can also do this in software, by cropping a larger area outside the scanned image.

There are many options to view the scanned image like Actual size or Fit or Fit vertically or Fit width. The same image will appear different in each case.

How to scan in hp scanjet g2410


First install the required drivers for the HP Scanjet G2410 Flatbed Scanner.
Simple way is to scan is use PICASA

GOTO http://picasa.google.com/
Download picasa 3.8
  1. Make sure everything is connected and turned on!
  2. Put the photo on the glass of the scanner - face down
  3. In Picasa, click 'Import'
  4. Click the arrow for the drop down list of devices. You should see your scanner listed ... select it
  5. Now you will see a screen that depends on your scanner. There should be an option to 'Preview'. Click that.
  6. You should now see your picture, there may be some settings you want to change here, but if it looks OK then
  7. Click the button to Scan
  8. When it's done scanning, you're back at the standard Picasa Import screen. Click Import all.
  9. Select a folder to put it in. I made a folder called 'Old Photos' for the first one, then, for each subsequent scanned photo, I selected that existing folder from the drop-down list.

I have an Agfa snapscan e20 and would like to use it from my Macbook. The scanner is an old thing. Is this possible and can you give me software to download? Thanks


First thing you should do is after you have connected the scanner to your computer, go to Finder, navigate to Applications and then double-click on the "Image Capture" icon. Press the "Scan" button on your scanner. The Image Capture application will recognize the connected scanner and will display a preview of the picture. Select any special options you want for the scanned picture and click "Scan" in the lower-right corner of the preview window. A scanned image of the picture will now be saved to the "Pictures" section of your user folder. I am advising you to try this as your MAC OS might recognize the scanner without the drivers.

If that doesn't work, try the drivers from Agfa website for SnapScan E20. Website doesn't specify for which MAC OS version they are. In addition, here's a link to th manual.

Black and white photos from many years ago now have a blue-green hue on them when they are scanned. it started after I scanned old slides.


Did you make changes to the scan type when you scanned the slides? It sounds like you have the scanner set to do a negative image as a slide would need.
Check the preferences for the scan type.
The scanning manual is available on Canon's Website.

Driver acer flatbed 13 for mac


Go to http://www.hamrick.com/ or search for "VueScan".  It is a generic scanning program that will allow you to use the Acer scanner with the MacBook.  I think it costs about $30 (US).  I had the same problem with an old Acer scanner that had no drivers for OS-X and VueScan solved it.

Installing CanoScan Lide 20 / Lide 30 into Mac OS X 10.5.5


I found this scanner at a garage sale today, and had trouble finding this info myself. Finally stumbled upon this site ( http://cadwell.livejournal.com/39545.html )

I'm using it on a Powermac G5 but both the driver and toolbox app say they are univeral binary. Hopefully this gets you up and running too:

CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OS X 10.5
This technical help may seem completely out of place on this art blog but after scouring the internet for 3 hours trying to set my 6 year old scanner up on my new MacBook, I found this info half way down a lengthy comments section of a random blog. So I thought I'd post it here (slightly altered) as a message in a bottle to anyone else in need of it.

How to set up CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OSX 10.5
STEP 1:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6623
STEP 2:
Select MAC OS X
STEP 3:
Download BOTH:
LiDE 20/LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX
(Mac OS X)

lide20lide30n670un676un1240uosx7011aen.dmg
CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
(Mac OS X)

CSTb4130MXE.dmg.gz
STEP 4:
INSTALL CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
STEP 5:
INSTALL LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX . Make sure Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins is selected as the install location.
STEP 6:
You will be asked to RESTART. You should.
STEP 7:
When you run CanoScan you can choose Photoshop as the default program to open the image in once it has scanned. You do not need Photoshop to open using Rosetta for this to work.
NOTE: If you want to scan directly from within Photoshop CS3, you need to copy the driver 'ScanGear CS 7.0X' which is found in Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins into the photoshop pluggins folder, Applications> Adobe Photoshop CS3>Plug-Ins>Import/Export. You also need to open photoshop in Rosetta mode. Apple + I on the photoshop icon and select 'Open using Rosetta'. I would not recommend using this method though.
STEP 8:
Go to System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items and remove both of the following:
N067U_ButtonManager.app
N124U_ButtonManager.app
STEP 9:
SCAN.

Which program do i use to transfer the scanned image too?


Hi,

Sounds like the CanoScan is looking for a photo enhancing/utility program. Programs for this purpose are Adobe PhotoShop, PaintShop Pro, ACDSee, or even the simple Windows Paint.

Additionally, the CanoScan Toolbox might have a basic photo utility program. Normally basic photo utility programs like this are included in the CD installer of a scanner, a digicam or even most color printers.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

This solution does not work. On MAc there is no way to use this scanner. Canon sucks!!! There was no info about supported os on the box. It is just unfair to sell products without providing drivers for users.
