Setting up the scanner is pretty straightforward, provided you follow the directions exactly as they appear on the one page set up instruction sheet that comes with the scanner. The sheet asks that you first install the scanner software, the Presto PageManager scanner suite, and then calibrate the device with the provided black and white calibration papers. Once you follow all of these steps, the scanner is good to go.
Although the scanner will work with virtually any image editing application, Presto PageManager is the software that ships with the scanner, and for the first time using this application, it is actually a pretty handy tool for SOHO environments.
When you select scan from PageManager or any other application, the scanning interface pops up, which enables you to adjust the various settings for the scanner before you scan the document or photograph. From this window you preview, reset, calibrate, and scan your documents.
There are three tabs in the interface; Custom Settings, Information, and Language.
The Custom Settings tab is where you specify if you want to scan a black and white image, a gray scale, or a color image.
You also set the resolution in this window. Your choices range from 50 to 600dpi, with anything higher than that interpolated resolution, which is done in software.
The scan size can be adjusted here as well. Your choices here include Business Card (2.2 x 3.5-inch), Photo (3.5 x 5.0-inch), large Photo (4.0 x 6.0-inch), and Panorama Photo (4.0 x 3.0-inch).
You can also adjust the brightness and contrast of the image, as well as the gamma, Highlight, and Shadow. the Information tab just gives you the information about the scanner, and Language let's you select the different languages that the scanning software supports, which includes English, Espanol, Deutsch, Francais, Italiano, Nederlands, Chinese, and Japanese.
Once you scan an image, the PageManager application saves a thumbnail of the file in its file browser, as well as to the clipboard, enabling you to open the image from a variety of applications that offer support to open the document, be it via an image editor such as MSPaint, PhotoImpact, or Photoshop Elements, a Microsoft Office application such as PowerPoint or Excel, or a web browser.
Notable features to PageManager include the capability to create a slide show of images, a PDF from the images that you scanned, as well as perform optical character recognition of your scanned documents.
