I'm assuming that you mean the scanned image is to big to fit the screen, and not that the document you are scanning is too big to fit in the scanner...

Try reducing the resoloution of the scan, this will redce the size of the scanned image.

EG: at the moment your probably scanning at 1200 dpi, when 300 dpi might suit the application better.

Lexmark pro205 trying to set scanner for 150 dpi scans to big need smaller


If you're concerned about the file size, uninstall the Lexmark driver and download an updated driver online at www.lexmark.com. That should reduce the file size of the scanned documents.

Need to scan multiple documents as a pdf and email file but when i scan file the fileis to big to email


Have you tried compressing the file into a zip format. If you are using Windows this can be done using right click or download zip genuis and use that. Once compressed the file should be small enough to email.

How do you scan?


Open the Applications folder on the hard disk on which MP Navigator is installed, then open the Canon Utilities folder and double-click the navicon.gif MP Navigator 3.0 icon. MP Navigator opens.
2. Point to Scan/Import and click 'Photos/Documents (Platen)'.
macnavscanfirst.gif
3. Place the document face-down on the platen glass, and select 'Document Type'.
How to place the document and Document Type depends on the document to be scanned.
navscandocwindow.gif
How to place the document
Allow 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen glass and the document.
Align a corner of the document with the corner at the arrow of the platen.
macnavscanselectdoctype.gif
  • When you select Color Photo or Black and White Photo, the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly if you do not leave 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen glass and the document.
  • When you select Color Photo or Black and White Photo, the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, select Document Size such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned.
  • When you select Magazine(Color), the Descreen function will be enabled and scanning takes longer than usual. To reset the Descreen function, disable Descreen in the Scan Settings dialog box.

4. Click 'Specify'... and set the preferences as required.
The Scan Settings Dialog Box opens. Specify the Document Size and Scanning Resolution.
macnavscanscanset.gif
  • When Document Size is Auto Detect or Auto Detect(Multiple Documents), the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, select Document Size, such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned.
5. Click 'Scan'.
Scanning will begin.
When the document has been scanned, the scanned image is displayed in the Thumbnail List area.

Internal DRS error when scanning


Hi,

When you go to do the scan using the "HP Solutions Centre" "Scan Document" button (press this now).
Click on the "Change Settings" button (lower right side of scan window) in the window that opens. This opens the "Scan Document Button" window. Make sure the "Show a preview scan." box is ticked (In Button settings bottom right of window.
Click on the "Advanced Document Settings..." button (Right Hand side 2nd under "Scan Type)
Change the "Output Resolution (ppi) for Document as Image:" to 200. While here, check the correct language is selected. I also tried an Output Resolution of 600ppi. This seemed to make no difference as the system defaults back to 300ppi when the scan is carried out, regardless of what has been selected, but still scans as expected instead of erroring. For some reason I have yet to discover, simply changing the ppi removes the erroring!!
While here (in the "Advanced Document Settings..."), now would be a good time to change the scan to "Black & White" which in itself reduced my scan from 24.5MB to 1MB The only thing you'll need to do then is, after the scan, adjust the "Black and White" level manually for clearest picture. I got the best results this way. If you forget to select this at this point, don't worry, it can be done from the next window (HP Scanning)
Now click the "OK" button. This takes you back to the "Scanning from... Scan Document button (HP Solution Centre) window. Now click on the "Scan" button (in the "Scanning from...Scan Document Button (HP Solution Centre)" window.
Now you'll be in the "HP Scanning" window which is where you can make any final changes you deem neccessary. You can also see how big your file is and how each change makes a difference to the size of your file. Note that this is not the storage size. It is the size of the "working in ram" file.
When the document is the way you want it, then select finish. This time, it should go through to the final program as expected. Don't expect every character to be correctly recognised, especially with any hand written documents. Tables are especially notoriusly bad.

Hope this helps. Good luck and I'll let you know if I find anything else to help.
When it works, it works well. In the mean time......

Scanning docs & size of pdf files on Mac w/HP l7680 All-in-one


The scanner produces a "picture" of the document, much as if you laid it flat on a table and took a picture of it with your digital camera. If you did this, your .jpg from the camera would be several hundred K at a minimum - comparable to the file size off the scanner. That's why the file is so big, it contains a picture and not text data - even though it's still a .jpg file.
If you reduce the scan resolution you will save space, but at the expense of legibility of the document image. To get it down to the smallest possible size, you will need to run the scanned image through OCR ( Optical Character Recognition ) into a Word document for example, and then print it out to a .pdf file. If you have a clean source document with few graphics this isn't as difficult as it may seem. Microsoft Office has an excellent OCR process known as Document Imaging. You need to carefully proof read the result but with a clean input Document Imaging is amazingly accurate in Office 2007.
In short, there is no easy solution to your problem.

We have a canon MP610 printer scanner combo, I work in a dentist office and am trying to scan a x-ray. When I do it is'nt picking up the detail very well at all. I think I need to adjust the settings but I...


the only way to get a little more detail out of this printer with x-rays is to INCREASE the DPI resolution. there are no other adjustments that are abailable.
The Scan Settings dialog box opens when you click Specify... on the Scan/Import Documents or images screen.
The Scan Settings dialog box allows you to specify advanced settings for scanning.

Document Type
Select the type of document to be scanned. To scan photographs, select either Color Photo or Black and White Photo. To scan text documents, select either Color Document, Black and White Document, or Text(OCR). To scan magazines, select Magazine(Color).
Document Size
Select the size of document to be scanned.
Auto Detect: Detects document size automatically.
Auto Detect(Multiple Documents): Select this when scanning multiple documents at one time.
Select Stitch-assist to scan the left and right halves of a document separately and combine them back into one image.
Reference See the section below for details.
Scanning images Larger than the Platen (Stitch Assist)
When you select Custom, a dialog box in which you can specify the document size opens. Select a Unit, then enter the Width and Height and click OK.

Important When you select Auto Detect the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, specify the document size, such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned, and align a corner of the document with the corner at the arrow of the platen.
When you select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) allow 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen and the document.
If not, some images may not be scanned at the correct positions and sizes.
You cannot select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) or Auto Detect when Document Type is Text(OCR).
Scanning Resolution<<<<-------------------------------------------------------------<<<<<<<<<<
Select the resolution at which to scan documents. The following scanning resolution can be specified:
Text(OCR): 300dpi, 400dpi
Others: 75dpi, 100dpi, 150dpi, 200dpi, 300dpi, 400dpi, 600dpi
The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail. At high resolution, scanning takes longer and file size becomes larger than usual. See the section below for details on resolution.
this should answer your question , feel free to post here agian if you need more help.
Regards, and thank you for using fixya.

When I scan one page, in the document info it show the size of the file to b : 13.66 MB or 29MB


This is not an issue with your printer, this is an issue with your email provider. It's telling you that the file size is too big to be sent by your email provider.

You can check with your email provider to see if they can increase the size that attachments are allowed to be, but that is no guarantee that the person you are sending to can receive files when they are that big.

The best solution is to either scan at a lower resolution, or use a more compressed file format. If you're not doing so already, scan to a .jpg file format. If that still does not work, try reducing the scan resolution... start at 600dpi, then maybe go down 100dpi at a time until it is small enough to send.
