Tips for scanning documents

If scanning a document please pay attention to the scanner settings. The default settings of many scanners often create extremely large files that take much longer than necessary to download and print.

  1. Set the color to "black and white" or "2-bit depth" if possible.
  2. Set the dpi (dots per inch) level at 150-300, depending on what looks legible.
  3. If writing in pencil, or the writing is very light, put the scanner on a darker setting.
