Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 Flatbed Scanner

2 Answers

Hello I have recently purchased a second-hand CanoScan LiDE 25 scanner and it was accompanied by OmniPage SE Software. The reason for this purchase was to scan research papers for a friend. My experience with scanners is limited, and limited to an old HP scanner where the output document was a .jpg file, irrespective of the nature of the document. In other words, the output was a graphic of the original document in its original form. I have tried for several hours to bring about a similar result with the CanoScan: a document which is a copy of the original. All of these documents are text with tables and graphs, and the image that appears in the Text Editor window is a scrambled version of the original, and for the life of me I cannot see how to retain the original document as it is, as a photographic image as it were. Can you help?

Don't use the OmniPage software for scanning. OmniPage is an OCR (optical character recognition) program and is trying to convert the scan into a document compatible with a text editor (such as Microsoft Word). Use a graphics editing program, and use the option to 'Import' or 'Acquire' an image. Make sure that the LiDE 25 is specified as the scanner, and you should be linked to the scanner interface. Now when the scan is complete, it will be transferred to the graphics editor as an image, not a document.

Can the canoscan lide 70 scan documents to work so they can be edited? Is so how


Yes, but you have to use a special program called an "OCR" (Optical Character Recognizer) which will "read" the document from the scan. A scanner only produces a picture of a document, and it requries special software to "read" that image and make it editable.
The LIDE 70 comes with OMNIPAGE SE (special edition) which will work for simple documents. For more complex documents, you may need to buy the full edition of OMNIPAGE or another OCR package like FineReader. It is also built in fto software like OneNote and Evernote.

My computer had to be worked on and when I got it back my scanner was not on it. I have lost my installation disc for the canoscan Lide 25. How can I do this online: or get a disc?


I have many years experience working on Canon scanners so here is my suggestion to you.

I would first google Canon CanoScan LIDE 25 drivers and software. Canon will give you the drivers for free and I believe they will give you capture perfect for free too. If you need to purchase a disc Im sure then they will want a fee for that. You may also want to try Ebay I have found a variety of stuff for canon scanners on there and you may find your software on there also

I hope this helps you out.

You can go to this page, select your operating system and download the driver and software utilities:
LiDE25 support page
This will allow you to work with your scanner.

If the CD contained some other bundled 3rd party software (like OmniPage OCR or PhotoStudio for example), then unfortunately it will not be available for download.

Scan and make changes to document later


You need to use OCR. Use the OmniPage Se application that shipped with your scanner.
