This is a digital image of our new scanner in the teacher work areas.
We can scan anything. Pictures, objectsit really does not matter what the item is. We can make a digital copy of it with a scanner.
The only concern we must have is how to do it and what are we going to do with the image once it is scanned.
Double Click on the HP Precision Scan Pro icon. This will open the program and display the screen below.
For the purpose of this example, I placed my desk name plate on the scanner and clicked the Scan button.
The computer will attempt to recognize whether the scanned item is and image or is text. For this example, the computer recognized the name plate as an image.
The next step is to set the resolution. Resolution is a key element. The greater the resolution, the larger the file size. The lower the resolution, the smaller the file size. This is important. When you go to save the image, if the resolution is too large, it may not fit on a diskette. If you are scanning for use in Power Point or on the Web, keep the resolution below 150.
Now, this is how to display the resolution and change it.
Using the down arrow, change it to a suitable number.
Click and drag a box around the area you wish to scan for the final image.
The computer will attempt to recognize it as an image or as text. Be certain that the image is going to be scanned in True Color
If it does not, click Output Type on the menu and select True Color.
At this window, select where the image is to be saved
Give the file a name. Remember that if you are going to use this image on the Web, you must not use space in the file name and it must be in the index folder.
Finally, be certain that the file type is .jpg
Now click Save
Lift and place your document face down in the upper right hand corner.
Click Output Type and select Text
Click the Scan To button.
The program will prompt you with the Destination window. Scroll down until you can select Microsoft Word 2000.
Then click Scan
It is very important that the Output Type is text
It is magic
You may be asked if you want to scan another document into the current page.
Microsoft Word 2000 will open and your document will appear in Word. At this time you can change font or adjust margins.
Save the document
