Overview

With more than 40 step-by-step projects covering a wide range of activities for both home and business, this engaging guide will help you produce distinctive documents and designs, showing you throughout how to use your scanner more efficiently-and always more creatively. While scanners are relatively easy to use, the more you know, the more you can do with them.

Although Hewlett-Packard products are used for examples throughout the book, The Hewlett-Packard Official Scanner Handbook covers scanning issues that are virtually the same no matter what scanner you own, such as installation, optimization, and resolution issues.

The Barnes & Noble Review
Got a scanner? Any scanner? HP's Scanner Handbook, Second Edition will help you get the most out of it. Not just for owners of HP scanners (though HP customers do get some bonus coverage), the book covers all the ins and outs of capturing formatted documents with optical character resolution, getting the best quality from your scans of pictures and photos, using image-editing software to improve on the scanner's results, scanning your photos straight to the Web, and more.

The second half of the book is chock-full of scanner projects -- great stuff to do on a rainy day when the kids (and/or grown-ups) are bored. You'll find step-by-step techniques for using your scanner to create greeting cards, family histories, trading cards, collages, flip books, holiday cards, personal web sites, even throw pillows. There are also two chapters of small-business projects -- from picture IDs and logos to calendars and certificates. Easy, friendly, and fun. (Bill Camarda)
