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.
