Some more info on the new scanner features, from the help file:
There are plenty of utilities designed to help you scan images with your scanner and manipulate them, some free and some commercial (e.g. Paperport).
And most modern scanners come bundled with a scanning utility or two.
So why add scanning functionality to Screenshot Captor?
Screenshot Captor is designed to stay resident in your system tray, and make it easy for you to take lots of multiple screenshots with little intervention.
The scanner functionality in Screenshot Captor follows the same philosophy -- it aims to help you do very quick scanning of multiple documents.
It's also designed to perform the common image corrections, and includes special functions for automatically and manually detecting the foreground of scans, cropping, and adjusting for small rotation alignment problems.
The program also makes it easy for you to do things like:
- Save in different formats (including PDF).
- Print images.
- Email images.
- Configure hotkeys to start a capture.
To enable scanning functionality in Screenshot Captor, go to the Scanner Options tabs in the program preferences, enable the scanner features checkbox, and choose your scanner.
Screenshot Captor supports both TWAIN and WIA scanner interfaces, and can be configured to use the native scanner dialog for your scanner or bypass it completely.
Screenshot Captor registers itself as an official imaging application in Microsoft Windows, so if you have buttons on your scanner, you can configure these buttons to trigger an automatic scan inside Screenshot Captor (or manually configure a shortcut that passes the -scan commandline parameter).
