Question about HP ScanJet 3500C Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Scans only in the jpeg format.

When I had windows 98 my scanner used to scan doucments in ms word document. When I shifted to windows XP if I have to scan a document it scans in jpeg format and that opens in photoshop. The file size increases if I have to attach it as an attachment. I tried to reinstall the software but there is no use.
What is the problem and any solution for this.

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!

CAN'T SCAN TEXT


If you scan the document, make sure it is saved in JPEG format. What you do afterwards is to download FreeOCR. This program is free and works better than most of the ones you purchase.

Just install it in 5 minutes, open your scanned jpeg image and click on OCR button and in seconds, the program will bring it up in editable format for you to change, correct or whatever. Or just click on the OCR MS Word button, and it will open it up in Microsoft Word. Here is the link..

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.

How to instal Mustek cu 600 scanner with win xp


there is not drivers or software made for Windows XP.
however, you can use the win98 or WinME software. as long as the Windows Xp is running at 32 bits. I have done that with HP flat bed scaner.
don't worry about the non-certified software with MS.

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. :)
