How do I use my x5495 to scan a resume and then to edit it with my Dell XP computer?


You'll need to scan the document with an OCR software package (Optical character recognition) that will recognize the letters themselves and transmit them to word processing application, such as Word for Windows. Most scanner packages come with some form of OCR utility, so check your installed software. You may already be set up!
Best of luck, William

Sometimes when it is scanning the light moves really slow. It is almost like it is moving back and forth. It does this on small items and large items I am scanning. but not all the time


Hello,
You might have to calibrate the scanner from time to time. The software included should have some type of calibration options. Without calibration, the scanner's "scanning capabilities" deteriorate over time.

Canon scanner speed slow


Various ways....Try these! the slow problem wil get off

How to change the resolution (Windows)
The precision of printouts can be improved by changing scanning resolution.
The higher the scanning resolution is, the more precise the scanned images are represented, however, the file size gets larger.
The scanning resolution can be changed before scanning photos.
Note: When the scanning resolution is doubled, the image data size will be quadrupled.
When the data size is large, the throughput speed may slow down or may occupy too much of the computer's resources (memory).

To scan using MP Navigator:

Scanning problem with Epson/Perfection 4490. Husband scanned something at 3600 dpi and can't reset size. Think pixel levels are too high now to scan and submit pix on ebay and also image that shows up on...


It sounds like your husband chose full scan mode in Epson Scan, the software that comes with the scanner.
To change this:
1. In the top right corner, change the mode to Professional Mode.
2. In the dialog box you will see a resolution selection area.
3. Change the resolution to 300 dpi for Web/Ebay pictures.

Another solution is to change the pictures using a program called Irfanview. It is free. You can open a picture and under the menu item Image, slect Resize. The pixel size of 640 width is good for Ebay.is program.

I HAVE A LEXMARK X9350 AND WHEN I SCAN ITEMS, THE FILE SIZE IS HUGE. EG 1 PAGE = 3MB. HOW CAN I REDUCE THE SIZE OF THE FILE


See the manual for X9350 on page 119.

The software application must be used for saving files to a specific format that you can select from the menu on the computer.

Standard scans are often saved as bitmap with the extension .bmp .
Select another file format like jpeg with the extension .jpg or .jpeg, when you want to view the scans in photoview afterwards.

Another option is to save the file in a format that can be read with Adobe Reader, selecting .pdf format.

A last option is to reduce your file size, changing the scan settings:
( I wouldn't advise; this can result in unclear copies ):
Advanced scan settings can be changed on the computer as well:
See reducing e.g. "scan resolution" and "color depth" on page 120.

Use the link support for Lexmark 9300 series for more help.

Same problem scanning blank help! Appears to work fine then scan comes out blank.


Hi crb,

Initiate a scan using the preview option. It should show the scanned item and should allow you to select the area to be scanned for output using the click and drag method.

Start by selecting the whole page and click preview again. The results should be different this time.

Reselect the area you want and click scan

Hope this helps,
Mike

Nikon Coolscan V ED says " no scanning items - after apparent aquire/scan?


I got the same problem. And, I followed the suggestion and reinstalled Nikon Scan to no avail. Then I noticed a small bright spot in the scan screen and I realized that I had accidentally "clicked" that screen with Selection Cursor. So, I used the Selection Cursor again, but this time I enlarged it to include the entire scan window. The problem is solved!
