In this course, photographer and graphics professional Taz Tally shows home and business users how to get the best results from their scanners. The course begins with a look at scanning essentials, including how to clean and care for a scanner, choose scanning software, and understanding concepts such as resolution and file format. Next, Taz uses the basic mode that most scanning software provides to show how to perform an array of common scanning jobs, from scanning photos and artwork to capturing text using optical character recognition.
