Put scanned document on my computer to print afterwards if necessary and read on my computer


I am unclear on your problem but in general..you use the scanning software that came with the scanner scan the document and save the scanned file to your computer as a pdf file for documents or tiff or jpg for photos, (you set the type of file you want to save with the software options)
To print afterwards open the pdf with acrobat and print it
Did that answer your question?.

When we try to save the scanned documents it takes long time? any idea how to slove this issue please...thanks


The file size depends upon B&W or Color, the Format and the System performance. If you are scanning in color, try JPG format as it is lesser in size. TIF file will be huge as compared to JPG, though there is a drop with JPG, it is easily manageable. If B&W go for TIFF compressed instead of uncompressed TIFF.
Check if you have enough disk space in your computer. Do a defrag on you hard disk.

How to scan documents and save them as jpg Format as default instead of tiff?


On some copiers, there is an option to scan as JPG. Press the Scanner function key on the left, and look for a button on the screen that says something like "Scan as file type." Press this button, and if that copier can scan JPG files, you should see the option there. Otherwise you might have to scan as TIFF files and then use a program like Microsoft Office Picture Manager to convert them to JPG images.

I have installed scanner and disc but cannot find how to use it.I found the test box and that works but now how do I scan?thanks


Canon and other Scanners have both hardware and software buttons to scan documents and photographs.
Scanning with a computer is done with a destination in mind. So the buttons and the software are associated with destinations.
Typical destinations are File, email, Application, and print.
In a simple scan process for copy or print, the item is placed face down on the scanner, then the print button is pressed on the front of the scanner.
The software for the scanner pops up on the screen and the scanner moves the imaging light across the scanner under the glass, reading the item on the scanner. The software sends the image to the default printer and it prints a copy.

You will need to setup your preferences in the software so that a photograph is scanned properly and a newspaper article is scanned to come out clear black and white.
Documents are best saved as PDF files and photographs as TIFF files.
The software will have an expert mode where you can change all the settings and a beginner mode where you let the software decide.
Canon has a great document for your scanner. If it is not on the disk, here is the link. It is called CanoScan 4200F Scanning Guide. I think it will help you to use the scanner for any task.

Lexmark 2600 scanning to MAC-no can do


Edward, I have this same problem. Were you able to solve it? Anyone, can you help? I have installed the drivers. When I connect the printer to my Mac, it launches ImageCapture and previews the scan fine. But I am unable to get the "scan" button to become active, adn there is no place to save the scan. If I click "save pdf to iphoto" it saves a pdf of the entire screen, rather than just the photo. Appears not to be Mac compatible for scanning purposes. Thank you for your help.

Try just using the epson scan utility


1. Launch Epson Scan by going into your HARD DRIVE, APPLICATIONS, and EPSON SCAN.
2. If prompted, select your scanner from the list of models and click OK.
3. In the FILE SAVE SETTINGS window, you can designate the location, name and type of file the scans will be saved as.

-LOCATION defaults to HD/USERS/(YOUR USER NAME)/PICTURES. Click CHOOSE if you wish to change this.
-PREFIX determines how the scan will be named. Type any name you like. You can also designate a start number.
-FILE TYPE dictates what format the scans will be saved in. ie. .JPG, .TIFF, .PDF, or .PICT)
-For example: if the prefix is "img", the start number is "1", and the format is "JPG", the name of the file saved in
PICTURES will be "IMG001.JPG"
4. Click OK once settings are changed as desired.
5. The EPSON SCAN window will open and begin scanning in FULL AUTO MODE. In FULL AUTO MODE the software makes all the decisions for you (as to what is being scanned, where it is on the flatbed, etc). This is the easiest way to scan.
6. If you want full control over the scanning process click PAUSE and change FULL AUTO MODE to HOME MODE or PROFESSIONAL MODE. In the latter two modes you can change your scan settings as desired. Click SCAN after you have selected your settings. Click CLOSE once the EPSON SCAN is finished scanning.
7. When scanning is complete, your images will be saved in the location specified on FILE SAVE SETTINGS, with the prefix and in the format you set.
