Scanning 35mm negs on my Epson Stylus PHOTO RX620


Try using a slightly off-white background sheet behind the negative (glass-negative-sheet-scanner lid) first, or a "frame" around the negative that is anything but white... some scanners have an auto-detect feature that may be skewed for one reason or another.

Another trick, from a photographer friend, is to take saran wrap or another transparent but non-reflective material and place as a filter between the negative and glass, thus reducing glare. The sharpness may be lessened, but the glare is also lessened...

Hope this helps!

Negative scan


The HP web site says the hpscanjet 2400 does not have a transparency materials adapter, so it would seem that you can not scan slide or negatives.

My scanner will not scan negatives


Most scanners aren't designed to scan negatives. (Of course the manufactures would never want to tell you their product CANT do something).

Flatbed scanners typically have a light on one side.

To scan negatives properly, you need to have a scanner that has a backlight, or a second light in the bed's lid that you fold down.

Canon USA, Inc. make a few flatbed scanners that have backlights. They range from $60 to $180, depending on the features and resolution you want to pay for.

Please see the below link. This is a more expensive one, but is shown just so you get the idea. In the pictures, note specifically in the picture that shows the lid open, how the white backing on the lid can be removed from a clip at the top. Underneath, is the backlight and clips designed to hold negatives in with the included frames.

I am tring to scan my 35mm negatives


Select scan. When the window pops up look in the upper right hand corner of the window. You will see select source: drop down menu give you choices which includes negative film. Just select it. Then drop negatives into holder. Oh, make sure you remove the cover sheet that slides in and out of the cover.

Scanning documents for report cards


It will scan pdfs but you would need adobe professional to add the data for each student. It cannot scan a document and make it into a Word doc because this is essentially an image scanner and .doc files, etc. have more complex embedded information that cannot be captured by a scanner because that information is not visually present (i.e. exact font size, type, formulas, etc.). You'll have to find some other way- sorry!

Driver please for this acer scan to web 3300u flat bed


please download linux driver following link
http://www.acercm.com.tw/tw/service/scan/drivers/Linux/sane-1.0.4.tar.gz

Download-it, ungzipped and untarred it, and it was a modified version of SANE - Scanner acess made easy (snapscan backend)!
Took a look at the scripts it was carrying, and since everything look good, I decided to give it a try.
I run the ./ezsetup script and almost worked at first try.
Loaded the usb file system : mount -t usbdevfs none /proc/bus/usb, changed from egcs-2.91.66 to gcc-2.96, and it not only correctly compiled but it worked!

[nuno@localhost nuno]$ scanimage -L
device `colorusb:/dev/usb/scanner0' is a Color FlatbedScanner21 flatbed scanner
