HP Scanjet Enterprise 7500 - Work with scan profiles

Scan profiles provide a fast, efficient way to select the settings for frequently-performed scanning tasks.
  • You can use the HP Smart Document Scan Software to set up and modify profiles. These profiles will populate the scanner LCD profile list.
  • You can use the HP Scanner Tools Utility to create profiles associated with ISIS- or TWAIN-compliant third-party applications. These profiles will populate the scanner LCD profile list.
