Adjust the scan properties to the desired settings.Color
can be changed under the "Kind:" field.Resolution
can be adjusted under the dpi box. (A common setting for pictures is 300 dpi, however for higher quality print products 600 dpi would be a better option.)Name
can be changed simply in the "Name:" field.Step Six:
Chose a save
destination. The file can be saved most anywhere, and will be in the JPEG format.
After choosing a save
destination the scanner will import, and a progress bar will be displayed over the scan preview.
When the scan is done Preview will display the finished product.
