The Barnes & Noble Review
Are you getting everything out of your scanner that you expected? Are you using it as much as you planned? Getting the quality you hoped for? Doing the cool stuff you thought you would? If not, get Scanners for Dummies, Second Edition.

Chambers starts with quick, on-target guides to buying and installation, then turns to creating better scans. Cleaning the scanner’s glass (and how not to!) Tweaking your settings (including how to scan 3D objects). Editing your scanned images (with coverage of software ranging from Paint Shop Pro to Eye Candy 4000). There’s a full chapter of crafts projects -- from T-shirts to wine labels. Oh, and troubleshooting, too -- both hardware and drivers. Bill Camarda
