Yeah....I'm using the scanners software. It's an HP6180. In the "tools" section of the set-up, I can select from about 8 or 10 different file extensions. PDF seemed to be the most popular for personal use...scanning documents that I like to have on file, such as kids birth certificates..innoculation records, etc. I guess my primary question is.....once I scan the whole manual in pdf......can I go back and just copy those files, or convert those files into JPEG without having to re-scan the whole manual?
Can't say I care too much for the HP software. I spend a lot of time disabling stuff like, "ink-level" monitors. It interrupts scanning just to tell me my "yellow" ink level is low.
I can forward you some pages if you like.
I am not really good with the newer scanners... mostly cause I don't use em. Bob in CT does a lot of scanning for the server, and he compiles .pdf's. He then exports ? to jpegs without having to rescan. Shoot him a pm and he should be able to tell you what he does..
Send along as many as you wish.. I always like manuals. (if you prefer, I have a gmail addy for manuals now -- firstname.lastname@example.org and I find that works real well for mulitpage manuals..)
I also am not a fan of hp software.. it clutters up my systray, uses resources I do not want used and is generally a PITA.. but hey.. that is the way software is going.. point and click.. and I will stop there.. ... suffice to say, I much prefer my own input into what I am doing.. I should try Emilie's HP1610 and see what it does.
I'm 2/3rd's done with scanning......but I have to get back to work. I'll set a target of being done with it all by next tuesday. It's slow going.
I know and I appreciate what you are doing. When I do a parts manaul it can take me about 12-16 hours of solid scanning. It ain't quick... and if you think it is slow on XP try it on Win98SE (that is the OS I have to use for my scanner)
I appreciate and I am sure everyone else will as well. Don't work too hard...
