"Getting great results from your scanner can tricky without the information in Scanning for Kids of All Ages. This is because scanning falls somewhere between an art form and technology. And what if you're not quite an artist or a computer wizard? This book removes the mystery, so that you can concentrate on the design skills that prompted you to buy a scanner in the first place. You will understand how your scanner works to create digital data and how to edit that data. Both are necessary to produce the great results you are expecting--and can quickly get.
Seven projects are included that help you apply what you learn about adjusting brightness and contrast, removing redeye, and scanning and printing line art versus photos. Choose the right format, GIF or JPEG / JPG, when saving digital images for E-mail or the internet.
Also, learn how to convert paper into editable text with OCR software that came with your scanner.
Kids. Teachers. Librarians. Grandparents. Anyone can scan!"
