How to scan from machine to PC

  • 1. Turn on your all-in-one printer and computer. Check the connections between the two machines.

  • 2. Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.

  • 3. Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.

  • 4.Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.

  • 5. Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.

  • 6. Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.

  • 7. Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.

  • 8. Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.

  • 9. Accept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

    LPI, PPI,DPI conversions

    Here is a conversion chart for DPI (Dots per inch) to LPI (Lines per inch) or PPI (Pixels per inch)

    180 DPI................31 lines/inch or 68 PPI
    360 DPI................63 lines/inch or 138 PPI
    720 DPI................127 lines/inch or 280 PPI
    1440 DPI..............255 lines/inch or 561 PPI
    2880 DPI..................510 lines/inch or 1122 PPI

    If you plan to enlarge your image, it is better to enlarge it when you're scanning rather than in your application. Each time you modify
    an image, you lose some quality. Keep in mind when you enlarge a small photo, such as a 35 mm slide or wallet-size photo, you'll need
    to scan at a high enough resolution to retain your image quality, but not so high that your file size is too large to be efficient. You must
    manually adjust the resolution (dpi) to maintain the same image quality when you resize your image. For example, if you have a 300
    dpi 2 x 2-inch image that you want to enlarge to 4 x 4 (a factor of 200%), increase the Scale setting to 200% or change the resolution to 600 dpi.

    Is it possible to scan a tiny image, enlarge it to print out on A4 paper

    yes you can scan a tiny image and print it out larger, but you will lose quality if you are going from very small to very big.

    If you want to try it i recommend a program called Paint.NET (it is like a photo shop except totally free) here is a link to get it.

    You can scan the image and open it in then go to this website which gives you excellent step by step instructions on how to re size an image:

    after you are complete with that you can print it out and you will have an A4 paper size (Equivalent size in inches is 11.69" long and 8.27" wide.)

    Hope this helps :)

    Find the file you scanned and click on it.Windows picture and fax viewer will open it,bottom right corner is a picture with a paintbrush across it.Open it,and it will open in Paint.If you don't have paint,use
    a Free photo editor.Right click your scanned image and in the pop up is "edit with Gimp"? I use this all the time to pick a "Window" out of a photo and enlarge or shrink it.Works for me!
