HP Scanjet 3770 Series Digital Flatbed Scanner - Scanning with an HP Scanjet 3770 Series Digital Flatbed Scanner

Using the scanner
Scanning is started in one of three ways:
Scanning method
Description
Scan from the buttons on the scanner lid.
The buttons on the scanner lid provide shortcuts to frequently used scanning functions.
Scan from the HP Director.
Scan from the HP Director software for more controls to customize the scan.
  • To start the HP Director software, double-click the HP Director icon on the first screen. The HP Director window appears.
  • If the HP Director icon is not on the first screen, click the the Start button, point to Programs or All Programs, then point to HP, and then click HP Director.
Scan from other applications
Bring an image directly into an open file in an application if the application is TWAIN- or WIA-compliant. Generally, the application is compliant if it has a command such as Acquire, Scan, or Import New Object. If unsure whether the application is compliant, or what the option is, see the documentation for that application.
Scan pictures and documents
Press the Scan button on the scanner lid to scan pictures and documents.
  note:
The Scan button will also scan slides or negatives from the Transparent Materials Adapter (TMA). For more information, see Scan slides and negatives.
Figure : Scanning pictures and documents
  1. Place the original face down in the upper-right corner on the glass as shown by the corner reference mark on the scanner.
  2. Close the scanner lid.
  3. Press the Scan button on the scanner lid.
  4. In the dialog box that appears, select one of the following options:
    • Picture - if scanning a photograph, a graphic, slides, or negatives. The default setting for scanned pictures is to appear in the HP Image Zone.
    • Document - if scanning text, both text and graphics, or any text that will be edited later. Scanned documents appear in the specified destination.
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen to finish scanning.
To simplify scanning, the software does not prompt to preview the picture when using the Scan button on the scanner lid. If you want to preview the scanned picture, select the Show Preview checkbox on the screen, or begin the scan from the HP Director.
The HP Scanning software can automatically correct images or restore faded colors in old pictures. The preview setting must be on to use this feature. To turn picture correction on or off, select Automatically Correct Photos in the Basic menu of the HP Scanning software, and then select the Restore Faded Color checkbox.
Scanning multiple pictures with one scan
To scan multiple pictures at the same time from the scanner glass, perform the following procedure:
Figure : Scanning multiple images
  1. Place the original pictures in each corner of the scanner glass with at least 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) space between the pictures, and then close the scanner lid.
      note:
    After scanning, you can rotate the scanned pictures in the HP Image Zone software.
  2. Press the Scan button on the scanner lid.
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen to finish scanning.
Each scanned picture appears in the HP Image Zone software as a separate picture.
  note:
To use the Scan button on the scanner lid to scan multiple pictures with one scan, the Preview setting must be set to off. To change the preview settings for the Scan button or HP Director, see Change settings. For scans from the HP Director, the Preview setting is on by default.
Tips for scanning slides and negatives
  • To scan a transparency for an overhead projector, place the transparency on the scanner glass, place a white sheet of paper on top of the transparency, and then scan.
  • When scanning a 35 mm slide or negative, the scanner software automatically enlarges the image to approximately 4 x 6 inches (10 x 15 cm). If the final image needs to be larger or smaller, use the Resize tool in the scanner software to set the scaling to the desired size. The scanner will scan the item at the proper resolution for the chosen size.
  • When cropping images, completely remove the borders to reduce excess light interference.
