And you can’t just scan blind, either; until you’ve done a preview, you can’t do any other sort of scan. There’s also Acrobat Reader, in case you don’t already have it. Agfa What it costs: This simplifies the setup process, gives a decent data transfer rate, and delivers the user from the sluggishness and unreliability of the old-fashioned parallel port interface. On the shiny-coin test, which used to be a deadly trap for cheap scanners but can now be handled quite well by almost everything on the market, the e40’s image-fiddling driver came to the fore.

You can turn off the auto-preview, but there’s not much reason to do so, because ScanWise isn’t clever enough to show you the last preview it made. Since the e40 driver can’t spit out anything but 24 sanpscan colour data and eight bit greyscale, you can’t do a grey-looking scan in full 48 bit resolution and then play snapacan the levels yourself in Serious Software. Many home and small business users buy the cheapest scanner they can find, because all they want it for is the odd happy-snap or for Optical Character Recognition OCR and fax duties.
ScanWise doesn’t think you need this feature.
Every time you run Arga. You can also do multiple selections with different settings, to pull a couple of selected blocks of text off a page, for instance, or some text and an image, or whatever. Plugging in the e40 is as simple as connecting any other USB scanner. Ordinary scanner software also remembers its image adjustment and resolution settings in between sessions.
On the shiny-coin test, which used to be a deadly trap for cheap scanners but can now be handled quite agfa by almost everything on the market, the e40’s image-fiddling driver came to the fore. It’s therefore very difficult to make the same settings time after time.
When it is finished scanning it will automatically update them to the latest, most compatible version. Here’s the coin on the standard black background, scanned at dpi. Other low cost scanners, like the Acer Scanner UT I review herehave 14 bit per channel resolution like the e The e40 does a perfectly good job on text documents, but the nastiest scanner in the world can snaoscan that.
The lowest-priced brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging where packaging is applicable. One USB cable, one power cable.
Unlike most scanners, the e40 has a matte black inside to its lid, instead of a smooth white one. The spookily flat result means that the e40’s software’s clipping off all of the lightest faga and declaring them to be white.

Agfa’s specs page for the SnapScan e Just as a side note, I’m getting sick of the style of promotional photography in which Hip Young Things are shot from above with a wide-angle lens, so they’ve got big heads and teeny feet. People who are used to various vendors’ habit of showing you the highlights of the software while it installs are likely to sit and ee40 dumbly at the Agfa presentation for a little while, before noticing that no files are being copied.
Go through the driver installation wizard, which should be quite straightforward.
There is no digital signature available for this driver. The physical glass area’s a bit bigger than that, to make it easier to fit things onto it, but you can’t use all of the area for a scan.
The software bundle’s decent, as you’d expect from a name-brand scanner. Got one small photo at the top of the scan bed? Perhaps it’s possible to make the e40 work with FotoLook – sometimes you can copy some strategic files and solve these sorts of problems – but I wasn’t in the mood to shuffle files around randomly. The e40’s maximum scan area is a thoroughly conventional by mm 8.
These days all this is just a matter of clicking and dragging, but it’s less than obvious to the beginner what settings ought to be used. For photo scans, the cheapie does better than the e40, because you don’t snapcan monster resolution, and the cheap scanner’s driver produces better looking photo output.
