Image Scanning Samples

The plain paper document came out as it was written after being scanned in at 600dpi, and the excerpt from an magazine article also came out very well despite a few elements which could have caused problems. Both documents are shown below.
Magazine Article Printed Page
This is could have been a challenging document to scan in for a few reasons. The magazine article is printed with white text on a dark blue background (black here), as well as black text on a white background. The two sections are different stories, and printed with different fonts and font sizes. The OCR program Samsung use was smart enough to output the entire white text section first (both columns) before moving on the other story. There were some odd characters thrown in where some of the paragraphs are indented, but that was about the only "junk" text visible. This plain text press release from LG scanned in easily, and without any errors we could find. The OCR program was able to pick out the LG brandname separately from the little logo.

Scanning in to print, fax or email a document are pretty much the same feature, and while text was treated fairly well in the final result the process did make the outside edges of words a little fuzzy. Grey scale, or images were met with different levels of quality, but in general images are highly contrasted and subtle shading "pixelized", though this is to be expected from 300/600dpi scanning.

Colour document scanned at 600dpi under black and white shading. Better for attaining clear text without text from opposite side of the page bleeding through. Shades are just drowned right out. Colour document scanned in at 600dpi under gray tone shading. Notice how some of the text from the opposite side of this magazine page bleeds through.
