Step 2: Place your document face down on the scanner and close the cover. Be careful not to shift your document when closing the lid, as this will create an off-center copy of your document.
Before making the scan of your document, preview it first. To preview, go to Scan>Preview.

The document will appear on your screen. It may be difficult to read, but you will be able to correct this in the next steps.

||
||
Step 3: To create a scanned image that is easy to read, select Output Type>True Color or Output Type>Grayscale. If you are scanning a page as an image to be saved as a Word document, select Output Type>Black & White>Bitmap.

Step 4: Once you select an output type, the image on your screen will appear as it will after you scan it. At this time, you can crop the image to select only a specific portion of the document to be scanned. Drag the cursor over the area you want to select.

Step 7: If you want to scan several pages into one document you can create a small file by creating an image of each page and then inserting them into a Word or PDF file. To do this, scan each page to Photoshop.
