Great Scanner funtions in ScreenShotCaptor
« on: February 27, 2011, 09:20:29 AM »
Good day Everbody,

Some years ago i bought a multifunctional from Canon (MP600R) with Omnipage-scan-software that was already included (with basic standard-scan-options). When i installed Windows-7 over Vista that scanning-function didn't work anymore with Windows7. New license will cost me more than 100 Euro, i heard from the guys of Scan Soft Omnipage. Well, than i decided to buy a new multinfunctional. Shortly before i went to the shop, i discovered (saved by the bell!) that in ScreenShotCaptor is also a scan utility available. Well, i thought that than the functions/buttons from my Canon-machine will stop or decrease, (and that i have to scan always via the SSC-program) but since i configured SSC for scanning, i can also use the scanning-buttons on my MP600R!. Just like it was before. Nothing changed?!! That's really GREAT! That saved me a lot of money buying new hardware (or either software).

So if you're looking for a nice scan utility, with extra options to modify the scanned item, just choose this Scanner in ScreenShotCaptor.
You can find it under : Edit > Preferences > Scanner Options.

Have Fun with the software.
Greetings,
Hippodrome.

I'm really glad the scanner functions were useful to you.

I find them especially useful for really quick common scanning uses.

Press button to scan image.  Press quick-skew adjustment button to fix tilt.

Then my favorite feature is not known by many, its the shift+alt+S shortcut that lets you select a region on the page and quickly save it to a new file; you can use that to really quickly carve up a scan into 5 or 6 different region files.  I use that all the time.

Thanks for these time-saving and useful pointers. Will come in handy with my new EPSON V330 scanner.       :Thmbsup:
Cranioscopical originally had pointed me at this thread in case it might be useful in helping me to revive my obsoleted HP Scanet 3400C scanner - but no go (no drivers, you see).    :(
