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

I have installed scanner and disc but cannot find how to use it.I found the test box and that works but now how do I scan?thanks


Canon and other Scanners have both hardware and software buttons to scan documents and photographs.
Scanning with a computer is done with a destination in mind. So the buttons and the software are associated with destinations.
Typical destinations are File, email, Application, and print.
In a simple scan process for copy or print, the item is placed face down on the scanner, then the print button is pressed on the front of the scanner.
The software for the scanner pops up on the screen and the scanner moves the imaging light across the scanner under the glass, reading the item on the scanner. The software sends the image to the default printer and it prints a copy.

You will need to setup your preferences in the software so that a photograph is scanned properly and a newspaper article is scanned to come out clear black and white.
Documents are best saved as PDF files and photographs as TIFF files.
The software will have an expert mode where you can change all the settings and a beginner mode where you let the software decide.
Canon has a great document for your scanner. If it is not on the disk, here is the link. It is called CanoScan 4200F Scanning Guide. I think it will help you to use the scanner for any task.

Distorted photos with Canon Scanner & ArcSoft Photo Studio


I'm assuming that this is only occurring in ArcSoft PhotoStudio? You may need to install an application that is more up today and compatible with Vista. I don't know if that version of PhotoStudio is compatible. You should check with ArcSoft. There is a patch for the 2000 version of PhotoStudio...but again, I don't know if PhotoStudio 2000 is Vista Compatible.

Adding text to photos not scanned by Canoscan 25


Use ArcSoft PhotoStudio that came with the scanner. Open ArcSoft PhotoStudio. Open your image file (File | Open). Select the 'T' on the Toolbar. Click where you want to add text and you're ready to start typing.

Printing text on pictures not scanned by canoscan lide 25.


You have to use a graphics application to do this. The LiDE 25 came with ArcSoft PhotoStudio that will allow you to apply text to your images.

TWAIN message


Hello,

The Twain error message sounds like a Windows error... I wonder if the software you are trying to use is for Windows, and not MAC.
