Canon Scan Lide 300
As with most scanners, be they flatbed or sheet-feed document machines, with the LiDE 300 you can scan from either the panel on the face of the chassis or from one or more of the software utilities on the CD-ROM that comes in the box. The LiDE 300's control panel consists of four buttons. Each one initiates a scan, and when it finishes, the scanner tells the software on the host computer what to do next, as follows:
PDF saves the scan to a PDF file based on parameters you set with IJ Scan Utility.
Auto Scan determines the type of item on the scanner glass and then scans and saves it to the appropriate file format. Text documents, for example, are converted to PDF or one of the other text document formats, based on the settings in Scan Utility, and photos are saved as JPEGs or another supported graphics format.
Copy sends the scan to the printer designated in Scan Utility.
Send pushes the scan to a designated email address or application. You might, for instance, want to send scanned photos to a photo-editing program for tweaking.
Finally, in addition to scanning paper-thin media, the LiDE 300's lid can be adjusted to hold thicker items, such as books and magazines.
