This book is the best general guide to scanning that I've seen, with lots of information on how scanners work, how to choose the best resolution, and how to get the best scans, and other essential information. Then, the last half of the book shows you lots of fun things you can do with a scanner, with a nice collection of easy projects. I recommend this book for beginners who want to understand scanning, and more advanced users who want a little more depth of coverage and a resource of ideas and applications. Good job, authors!
Although this book is supposed to be for all scanner types, it really centers completely on HP scanners (and programs, and printers, and paper, etc). Since HP no longer owns the lion's share of the market, this is very disappointing. Discussion of other programs related to scanning are nowhere to be found. Thanks HP, but no thanks. I don't have the proprietary software used in this book, so how about a book that uses Photoshop Essentials?
The information I wanted just wasn't in this book. It's not well-rounded, and concentrates far too much on making "interesting things." Someone else may need napkin rings, but I want to find out how to perfect my scanned images. This is NOT a solid background in scanning, and unlike the editorial review, I am not a "adult-and-kid duo" on the proverbial rainy day.
The true value of this handbook is that it *doesn't* cover what is included in the owner's pamphlet that came with your scanner. Instead, it goes beyond those basics to give you a solid background in scanning that applies to any scanner model, and some interesting things to do with your scanner that will help you build your scanning skills quickly. HP has done a real service to scanner owners everywhere in publishing this book.
You could basically learn what's in this book by reading the owner's pamphlet that comes with your scanner (and perhaps opening up a Girl Scout crafts book). I suggest you do exactly that, and spend your money on a book written about the scanner and not a bunch of silly projects.
