SOURCE: Hi,I have got a Canon,smartbase

I'm using an MP780. Usually when I scan an image to jpeg I press START, CANON, SCANGEAR STARTER. This open a window to ScanGear MP. Since I use the Advance Tab I can set the DPI and whatever outputs. The DPI rsolution will determine the size of the file also. When it is finished scanning it goes to the next window which has Save As Type and Save Scanned Image to. Save As Type is where you can choose JPG or TIFF or BMP. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: don't know how to set scanner for multiple page scan into single pdf file

The supplied Canon software is horrible, but it can be done!

Launch ScanGearStarter, choose advanced tab and click preferences button, then select scan tab.
Untick box "Automatically quit ScanGear....." then click ok.
(This box being ticked totally prevents multipage single file scanning).

Now choose simple mode tab, select the document type, dpi and document size.
Now click the green "Multi Scan" button, place the document on the scanner glas and press next in the new window.

The page will be scanned and the ScanGear window will return, just click "Multi Scan" again and place next document, press next. Keep repeating until all pages are scanned, then close the ScanGear window.

This will bring up a third window showing thumbnails of each page, any of these pages can be deselected if required.
The other important step is to choose from the pull down list Saved as Type: "MultiPagePDF".

Choose the location for saving the file and click save.
Hallelujah! .......stupid software.

How do i scan multiple pages and sav it to my documents. It seems like i am only able to scan and save one page at a time


Hi

If you have a Top feeder on the scanner, you can scan mutiple pages. Change the setting of the scanned file to pdf file (not JPEG) by going to the scanner icon and change the type of file you want to scan. Scan it as PDF FILE and then it will scan multiple pages. Regards

How do I scan in more than one page to a file? I would like to scan a 5 page document into one file. Can this be done?


You don't list the make and model of scanner, but if it's the type that comes with an automated document feeder, the software usually supports scanning multiple pages. If not, and you are planning to save it as a PDF, you can use Adobe Acrobat's "Scan to PDF" option--I believe it asks you after every scan if you want to combine that page into the same document.

Scanning Multiple pages into one pdf


Scanning a multi-page document as a .pdf file reverts the settings for rotation, selected area, etc. to default for any pages after the first page. This applies to Mac OSX 10.3, 10.4, & 10.5. A simple, but tedious work-around is to scan each page as a separate file and easily recombine them using OSX Preview. Just open the first page, view the Sidebar, and drag-drop the additional page files into the sidebar. Save and it's all one multi-page .pdf.

Scan a Multipage Document into a Single File


My scanner is a Cannon but the basic jist of what your trying to do is universal. You need to open up the software for the scanner and look for an icon that says scan to file. It sounds like you have already done this. If so you are very close in the step I mention to the setting you need to scan multiple pages into one PDF file. Once you find the setting to scan multiple pages be sure to not click "FINISHED" until your last page is scanned in.

Use the PDF function of the CanoScan Toolbox. On the options screen for a pdf, click the drop down box next to “Save as Type:”. Select “PDF (Multiple Pages)”. This option causes CanoScan to stop after each page is scanned and ask if there is a next page or if you are finished.
