Seattle Pacific University’s library offers sit-down scanning at four dual-screen computers. To access the scanner, insert the username and password log on and place the picture or document inside the cover-flap of the scanner.
#4 Before the document scans, this screen will pop up and ask for scanning preferences. Under “Profile,” select either [Photo] or [Document]. The source should remain Flatbed. For the color, select [Color], [Grayscale], or [Black and White]. When scanning a photo, the default is color; when scanning a document, the default is grayscale. With regards to the resolution, a higher resolution will produce a clearer scan but will also create a larger file size. A lower resolution will produce a clear scan with a smaller file size. After the preferences are set, push [Scan]
#8 Once the picture is imported, the file is saved in the users My Pictures folder. Most likely, C:\Users\spuusername\My Pictures
#9 The image may now be saved elsewhere, manipulated in Adobe Acrobat Pro, used in Word, or elsewhere.
