Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I am trying to scan a word document and it keeps saving it as a jpeg. Earlier I scanned a picture and it brought up adobe photoshop which I don't know why because I scanned pics before and this didn't happen and for some reason, now all my word docs have changed to jpeg files. I need to change a default setting but am not sure what it is I need to do. I have a HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-one.
By default all scanned documents are images (jpeg), OCR software converts the image to text for use with Word. I do not believe the scanner can tell what format to use without your input. More information is available here at HP's Online Support.
