Scanning Tips


Here are a few tips when using a TWAIN scanner with NetDocuments' Scanner Connector:

  • When scanning text-only documents, setting the scanner to "Black & White" or Bitonal will result in faster scanning and much smaller images.
  • Images that will be OCR'd should be scanned at 200dpi or better. 300dpi may be required if the font is very small. If the image will not be OCR'd then resolutions of 100dpi or 150dpi will usually provide satisfactory results and will scan and upload more quickly.
  • Put a folder cover sheet before the pages of an image to create a new image in the folder.
  • Put the cover sheet from a paper document before the pages of an image to scan to the existing profile and change it from a paper document to a PDF.
