Hewlett-Packard Official Scanner Handbook

Hewlett-Packard Official Scanner Handbook

449 pages, parution le 01/09/2000 (2eme édition)


With more than 40 step-by-step projects covering a wide range of activities for both home and business, this engaging guide will help you produce distinctive documents and designs, showing you throughout how to use your scanner more efficiently?-and always more creatively. While scanners are relatively easy to use, the more you know, the more you can do with them.

Although Hewlett-Packard products are used for examples throughout the book, The Hewlett-Packard Official Scanner Handbook covers scanning issues that are virtually the same no matter what scanner you own, such as installation, optimization, and resolution issues.
