those who really want to learn how to use the thing and can’t
get any training then it is recommended that you dig out the instructions
for the particular machine as they do vary a great deal. Most scanners
take a very high resolution image at the default settings and you
may find that you get an image which looks enormous. This will almost
certainly need some work before it’s suitable for use but
at least you’ll have it in a digital format and can check
out some of the other sections for what to do next.
Another point about scanning:
do note where the software saves the image it makes. It may well
be in your My Pictures folder but it may not be and not all software
gives you a chance to give the file a sensible name.
