JPEG gives small size outputs as compare uncompressed TIFF. This is probabbly the best for color. Try reducing the resolution to 150-300 dpi.

What is meant by PDF as used in scanning?


PDF is the format in which your scanned document will be saved at. In some cases you have options to save either as PDF, Jpeg depending on your scanner and the scanning software. Hope this helps!

Scan pdf on vupoint 410a scanner


With your printer you would have had the option to load the printers menu software. While in the scanning screen in that menu it should allow you to save whatever format you want from a drop down menu. In that drop down PDF should be 1 of the options along with JPEG and others.

I own canoscan Lide-25. I want to scan forms and fill in the blanks of the form from my computer then print for my use. How to do this? Am I to buy any splecial software other than OCR already provided.


I wouldn't use OCR, too difficult. I would save your scanned document as a jpeg and edit in Photoshop. From Photoshop thay can be printed or saved as a pdf file.

I want to save scanned document as a .doc using CanoScan 8400F


Scanners only see millions of dots. Unless it has software to convert a picture into a document, all documents are seen by scanners as pictures made of of millions of dots. Software is available to convert it to a Microsoft Doc format but it is very expensive.

How do I change the type of file my scanner saves a document in?


No .Type reconiznition software is very complicated and expensive. All a scanner does is divide the sceen into millions of dots and copies those dots in Picture(JPEG) format. It's software know nothing except to copy what is there.

Setting the format of the picture i scan


Ok I am not sure why ya scanner won't save in JPEG .. however converting the files to JPEG is relitively "Simple". After saving the Scanned picture.. Open it up in say MS Paint, Painshop etc, then simply choose "Save As.." from the File Menu, and save it as a NEW image file this time with a JPEG extension. IE: origional... picture.png or picture.bmp ... save as ...picture.jpg .. ya should be good to go. :)
