Simple Steps to Get Started

1. Connect the Scanner to Your Computer

Plustek Book Scanners and the eBookScan program allow you to easily perform book scanning tasks. First, plug the scanner’s power adapter into the power source and connect the scanner to the computer with the USB cable. After connecting your scanner and computer, turn on the scanner power and insert the Setup/Application DVD that came with the scanner into your computer’s DVD-ROM drive to install the scanner driver and application software. After the software is installed, restart the computer and the scanner is ready for use.

2. Modify Scan Parameters

Launch the eBookScan program on your computer before you begin the book scanning task. Before you start digitizing your books, it is recommended to enter the Settings dialog first for the image setting and file format adjustment. These settings will be loaded on every start of the application and can help you to get started more quickly. You can select the file format on this page to save the scanned images. Available file formats are: PDF, JPG, TIFF, and Searchable PDF. The bundled OCR software is required to install on your computer for the Searchable PDF format.

3. Start Scanning

To start scanning, place the brochure, magazine or book page you want to scan on the scanner glass. Click the Scan button to begin your scanning task.
