Caution
results in a large quantity of data and a prolonged
scanning time. It is recommended that you set the
scanning preferences according to the type of the
original being scanned, i.e., Text, Text/Graphics,
Photograph, Color, or Black & White.
● The scan resolution will vary depending on the
scanning area and how much memory in the machine
is free. For example, if a letter original is scanned in full
color at 300 dpi with only the standard memory
installed, the machine will scan the original in full color
at 150 dpi and the scanner driver will enhance the
resolution to 300 dpi.
To scan a ledger original in full color at 600 dpi without
