How much time does scanning take?
Scanning with a Plustek device can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on the type of scan. When you scan a document or a photo, it usually only takes a few seconds for the device to scan the image and save it to your computer. However, if you're scanning something larger like slides, the scanning process will take much longer because you have to move and align the slide to capture all the detail. Most devices have various settings that allow you to adjust the level of detail when scanning, which also affects the time it takes to scan. Overall, scanning is generally quick unless you need very detailed images, which may require more time and effort on the part of the user.
What is the best resolution for scanning?
When scanning an image, you need to decide what resolution to use to get the best results. Resolution is measured in dots per inch (dpi) and determines how much detail is captured when scanning. For general digitizing purposes, a 600 dpi scan may be appropriate. However, if you later want to edit or enlarge the image, you should choose a higher resolution. If you are scanning a slide, it is best to choose a higher resolution, e.g. 1200 or 2400 dpi, since slides contain more detail than other image types. This ensures that all details are captured during the digitization process. You should also ensure that the scanner settings are set correctly so that the image is scanned at its original size, which is critical to maintaining quality when editing and resizing.
