Scanning high Quality images

When I try to scan an image in 2400 dots pr inch resolution, it won't work. I get an error msg. Increase Virtual memory or increase RAM or decrease image size. The latter is of course out of the question. I've got 2 gb of ram and the virtual mem size is now increased to 16368 MB. So does anyone know what the problem is. Scanning in 1200 resolution is ok.

Re: Scanning high Quality images

Two questions for you to help with a solution:

1. What operating system are you using?
2. Are you able to scan an image of any size (even a postage stamp size) at 2400 dpi? (Try setting the scanner to just scan a small section of a larger image as a test for this.)

If you can scan smaller size images at 2400 dpi then it is possible to scan the image in two (or more) parts (upper half / lower half) and then re-assemble the image in an editing program.

Why do scanned documents appear unclear in PDF format?

Perhaps you're scanning at too low resolution? If you want images to be clear at normal size, scan at 300 pixels per inch. Your scanner may be scanning at fax resolution, 100 by 200 pixels per inch.

Poor color printing

It means that the printer is not spraying properly all colors.

If the bar are regular, that means that the printhead is blocking the spry at regular times intervals.

Sometimes this problems is related to the printhead.

You find out if it is a faulty printhead by removing it, leaving in in isopropyl alcohol overnight or replacing it.

If printhead is fine then it is a problem with the control board.

Text being scanned does not produce a clear print to our cannon ip18oo printer

alot of the time if you scan something it will streach the image because of the scanner resolution. check you setting on the printer. you might need to change the settings to stop it from doing that to make he image more clear. if that doesn't work than also some printers are just like that when you scan something. it will also make one page turn into two pages. that may just be the way the printer is.

I have used last 4 year canon 2900B printer. How to set 300 dpi printing resoluation

Canon PIXMA Manuals MG2900 series Resolution
Resolution The data in the image you have scanned is a collection of dots carrying information about brightness and color. The density of these dots is called "resolution", and resolution will determine the amount of detail your image contains. The unit of resolution is dots per inch (dpi). Dpi is the number of dots per inch (2.5 cm). The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail.

How to Set the Resolution You can set the resolution in Resolution on the (Scanning from a Computer) tab of the Settings dialog.
Appropriate Resolution Settings Set the resolution according to the use of the scanned image.
Item Type Use Color Mode Appropriate Resolution Color photo Copying
(Printing) Color 300 dpi Creating a postcard Color 300 dpi Saving to a computer Color 300 dpi Using on a website or attaching to e-mail Color 150 dpi Black and white photo Saving to a computer Grayscale 300 dpi Using on a website or attaching to e-mail Grayscale 150 dpi Text document (document or magazine) Copying Color, Grayscale, or Black and White 300 dpi Attaching to e-mail Color, Grayscale, or Black and White 150 dpi Scanning text using OCR Color or Grayscale 300 dpi Important
  • If you double the resolution, the data size of the scanned image quadruples. If the file is too large, the processing speed will slow down significantly, and you will experience inconvenience such as lack of memory. Set the minimum required resolution according to the use of the image.
  • When you will be printing the scanned image by enlarging it, scan by setting a higher resolution than the recommended one above.

After scanning a photo I noticed each one has a white line across it. Why and how can I fix this.

increase the resolution by editing the properties of the scanner basically 250 dpi is enough but as you increase the dpi the image quality gets enhanced but obviously the printer will take more time to scan it

How to enlarge a picture that is scanned or copied? When i scan or copy a picture it is too small and I want to enlarge it in order to view it better.


Open an image. Go to the Image Menu and select Image Size. This is where you can change an image’s resolution and print size (width and height). The following Image Size dialog box will appear:
Notethat the width and the height of the image as you view it on yourmonitor is not necessarily representative of the image’s actual widthand height—i.e., the size it would print out at (print size).Average monitor resolution is 72 dpi. If you view a 72 dpi image at100% in Photoshop, chances are that it will appear on your screen inits actual print size. However, this is not true when viewing a 300 dpiimage. A 300 dpi image viewed on-screen at 100% will be enormous. Don’tget tricked into believing that what you see on your monitor is whatyou’ll get when you print or place the image into another application.The best way to determine what your image’s actual print size will beis through the Image Size dialog box.
When the Resample Imagebox is checked, any changes you make to an image’s width or height willnot change the image’s resolution, and as such, any changes you make toan image’s resolution will not affect the image’s width and height.Keep in mind, however, when you increase width and height, orresolution, with the Resample Image box checked, you are adding pixelsto your image. These pixels don’t actually exist so Photoshop mustcreate them. As such, you will succeed only in degrading the quality ofyour image.
If you want to increase an image’swidth and height, or resolution, then uncheck the Resample Image box.Now any changes you make to the image’s width and height will changethe image’s resolution, and vice versa:
  • If you decrease resolution, the width and height will increase.
  • If you increase resolution, the width and height will decrease.
  • If you increase the width or height, the resolution will decrease.
  • If you decrease the width or height, the resolution will increase.
Thebest way to increase the width and height of a scanned image is to scanthe image in at a high resolution (about twice what your finalresolution should be), and with the Resample Image box unchecked, decrease the resolution. Once the image width and height is where you want it, you can then check the Resample Imagebox and type in the resolution you want if the resolution is too high.At this point, as long as you don’t increase resolution, or width andheight, your image quality will not suffer.

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord

Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    Images scan set at 300 dpi, end up 72 dpi

    It depends on the physical size of the images. Size and resolution are related to each other. Let me explain:
    You have an original, say, 2 inches by 2 inches.
    You scan it with resolution of 300dpi (dots per inch).
    You will get a file that's 600 by 600 pixels, right?
    Then you look at it on screen, which has a resolution of 72dpi - if it's displayed without magnification, what size the picture will be? 600 divided by 72 = 8 and 1/3 of an inch, so on screen it will be 8 1/3 by 8 1/3 inches.

    So, there's no such thing as a picture file's "real" resolution - we can talk about a resolution at a given size, because it's the horizontal and vertical size in pixels what's "real".

    Therefore you have to ask what size the scanned picture is, and then look at the file you receive; in it's properties you will find it's number of pixels horizontally and vertically, and from that you can easily calculate (dividing the height in pixels by the height in inches) the actual resolution the file has been scanned at.
    Then you'll know for sure if need to complain to the friend ot not :)

    Scanning files to large

    It's the resolution you are using to scan. Try a lower setting. for documents, 150-200 dpi is fine. That will produce smaller files.
