1. Introduction

This User’s Guide describes the features and functions of the CanoScan Toolbox for Macintosh.

About the CanoScan Toolbox

The CanoScan Toolbox provides easy-to-use scanning and image editing functions you can use to scan, edit and integrate digital images into a variety of applications (i.e., email, fax, desktop publishing, word processing, etc.). You can also use the CanoScan Toolbox to instantly fax or copy scanned documents with a click of the mouse. The advanced image enhancement features provided by the CanoScan Toolbox let you adjust the color balance, contrast and brightness, image sharpness and more, so you can create high-quality images.

In addition to the CanoScan Toolbox, the Canon Plug-in Module CS plug-in is also included in the

CanoScan Setup Utility CD-ROM. It provides an interface to the scanner. The Canon Plug-in Module CS plug-in launches when you click the Scan button from the CanoScan Toolbox. After the scan process is complete, the plug-in closes and you are returned to the CanoScan Toolbox so you can edit, fax, copy or integrate the image into other applications.
