Hello, my name is Luis Estrada, and I am a software developer. Select Document Imaging. Press the Scan New Document button. You can choose any of the predefined presets, depending on the source file. For example, Black and white text, Color, and Grayscale. You can create, delete, or reset your own presets, by clicking on the Preset option. If you have more than one scanner connected to your computer, press the Scanner button, and select the desired one from the list. If you enable the Show scanner dialog before every scan, you have the possibility of configuring the process. This overrides the selected preset configuration. In this case, we will scan a color document. Click the Scan button. Press Ok in the next window. Now, we can choose the settings for the scanner. Press the link at the bottom of the window. For the best optical character recognition, use a DPI value of at least 200. The higher the value, the better the result. Select a picture type, according to the source. Now, press Preview. Since the image is smaller than the total size of the scan bed, the program will scan that region only. Now, press Scan. If you choose a high DPI value, the process will take a bit longer. The program will automatically rotate the image, for a horizontal position. Zoom in or out for a better look at the text. Select the text that you want to import. Right click on it, and you can copy the text, an image, or even send the text to Word. Now, that you have your text in Word, you'll see that not all characters are successfully recognized.Just correct them manually, or use the dictionary option. You can also copy and paste images into Word, just make a selection around the scanned image. Right click, and select Copy Image. Go to your Word file, and press Ctrl V, on your keyboard. I'm Luis Estrada, and I've just shown you how to edit your digital images.
