HP ScanJet Pro 2000 s1, 3000 s3 - Use the scanning software (Windows)

The following topics describe how to use the scanning software.
Scan to a picture
  1. Load the document into the input tray.
  2. Open the HP Scan software.
  3. Select Save as JPEG or Email as JPEG, and then click Scan.

  3. Select Save as PDF or Email as PDF, and then click Scan.
    -or-
    Choose any other scan shortcut and select PDF from the File Type drop down list, and then click Scan.
Scan text for editing (OCR)
The HP scanner software uses optical character recognition (OCR) to convert text on a page to text that can be edited on a computer. The OCR software comes with the HP Scan and ReadIris Pro software. For information about using the OCR software, see scan text for editing in the online Help.
Scan to email
  note:
To scan to email, make sure there is an Internet connection.
  1. Load the document into the input tray.
  2. Open the HP Scan software.
  3. Select Email as PDF or Email as JPEG, and then click Scan.
    -or-
    Choose any other scan shortcut and select Email from the Send To drop down list, and then click Scan.
Scan to cloud
  note:
To scan to the cloud, make sure there is an Internet connection.
  1. Load the document into the input tray.
  2. Open the HP Scan software.
  3. Select Send to Cloud, and then select the file destination, such as Google Drive or DropBox.
  4. Select Scan.
Scan long or extra-long documents
By default, the scanner automatically detects page size using the Auto Detect Size selection for page lengths less than or equal to 356 mm.
For long or extra-long documents, select Long (8.5 x 34 in) or Extra Long (8.5 x 122 in) from the page size drop-down list in the scan shortcut settings.
  note:
Only one page at a time can be scanned when using a long or extra-long page setting.
If the scanner is set to scan long or extra-long pages, it will scan one page at a time. Using this setting to scan regular pages will slow down the process and should only be used to scan pages longer than 356 mm.
Detect multi-feeds (3000 s3 models only)
The multi-feed detection feature stops the scan process if it senses that multiple pages are fed into the scanner at one time. This feature is enabled by default.
Disabling this feature might be helpful when scanning:
  • Multipart forms (a use that HP does not recommend).
  • Documents which have labels or sticky notes attached to them.
To change this setting in an HP Scan shortcut, follow these steps:
  1. Open the HP Scan software.
  2. Select a scan shortcut, and then select More> in the upper right corner of the window.
  3. In the lower right corner of the window, click + below Misfeed, and then select or clear the Misfeed (multipick) detection check box. Click OK.
    For detailed information on this feature and its options, see the HP Scanner Assistant software Help.
  note:
Use the ISIS or WIA user interface to enable multi-feed detection when scanning from non-HP software.
Everyday Scan
The Everyday Scan shortcut allows users to define and save a scan shortcut for their everyday needs. The following Scan Shortcut Settings are customizable when the Everyday Scan shortcut is selected:
  • Item Type
  • Page Sides
  • Page Size
  • Color Mode
  • Destination/File Type
Filter out color from a document (color dropout)
You can filter out a color channel (red, green, or blue) or up to three individual colors. For specific colors, the sensitivity setting controls how closely a scanned color must approximate the specified color.
Removing colors from the scan might reduce the scan file size and improve optical character recognition (OCR) results.
To select colors to eliminate from a scan in HP Scan software, follow these steps:
  1. Open the HP Scan software.
  2. Scan a sample page, which has the colors to be dropped, into the viewer.
  3. Click the More button, and then click the Image tab and select the Color Dropout feature.
  4. Enable a color to drop and select the color from the preview using the eyedropper tool. Be sure to save the colors.
Only the color dropout options available for your scanner are selectable.
For information about the color dropout settings, see the online help for the scanning software that you are using.
Automatically detect page size
The HP Scan software is capable of automatically detecting page size using the Auto Detect Size option. When the Auto Detect Size option is used, the scanned image is cropped to the size of the detected page and straighten any skewed content.
Automatically crop or pad scanned image to selected page size
To automatically crop or pad a scanned image to a selected page size, follow these steps:
  1. Open the HP Scan software.
  2. Select a scan shortcut, and then click Edit shortcut.
  3. Select your crop options.
    • To automatically crop to the content of the document, click the Image Processing tab of the Edit dialog box, select the Crop to content on page check box, and then click Crop settings.
    • To automatically crop to the dimensions of the document, click the Scan Settings tab of the Edit dialog box, click Page Size, and then select the Auto detect size check box.
      note:
    Use the ISIS or TWAIN user interface to set crop options when scanning from non-HP scanning software.
    For information about the auto-crop settings, see the online help for the scanning software that you are using.
Automatically detect color
Use this feature to reduce the size of the scanned file by only saving pages that contain color as color scans, and saving all other pages as black and white.
To automatically detect color in a scanned image, follow these steps:
  1. Open the HP Scan software.
  2. Select a scan shortcut.
  3. To adjust the Auto Detect Color sensitivity and output mode settings, click More, select Image, and then click the Auto Detect Color drop-down box.
  4. Click on the Color Mode drop-down box, and then select Auto Detect Color.
  note:
For information about the automatic color detection settings, see the online help for the scanning software that you are using.
Use the ISIS or WIA user interface to automatically detect color when scanning from non-HP scanning software.
Automatically straighten scanned images
Windows: Use the Auto-Straighten feature to straighten content that is skewed relative to the page dimensions in the source document. Use the Auto Detect Size feature to deskew page images that might have become skewed during the scanning process.
  1. Open the HP Scan software.
  2. Select a scan shortcut.
  3. Click More, select the Document tab, and then select Straighten Content.
Scan by using other scan software
The following third-party applications are also supported by the scanner:
