The final two ScanSnap Manager tabs deal with document sizes and image compression settings.
ScanSnap Manager Tabs 4-6
The fifth tab is Paper Size. The following are the default settings already within the ScanSnap software:
- Automatic Detection
- Letter (8.5" x 11" / 216mm x 279.4mm)
- Legal (8.5" x 14" / 216mm x 355.6mm)
- A4 (210mm x 297mm
- A5 (148mm x 210mm)
- A6 (105mm x 148mm)
- B5 (JIS) (182mm x 257mm)
- B6 (JIS) (128mm x 182mm)
- Postcard (100mm x 148mm)
- Business Card (90mm x 50mm / 55mm x 90mm)
The following illustrations are observed when you click on the Custom button. Up to ten additional custom sizes can be added versus the previous five. Also notice you now have an "auto Length" checkbox.
Carrier Sheet Settings NEW
Fujitsu has added another new window for the S500 ScanSnap Manager. You can adjust your Carrier Sheet settings.
The final tab is Compression. The slider has compression rates of 1-5, and 3 being the "normal" compression rate. Note that this image compression is valid only for color images, so B&W documents will not be affected. Also note there is a checkbox for "High Compression", where all documents will be scanned in color.
Summation Of ScanSnap Manager
As a ScanSnap owner, you now have additional selections available to you, which can be "profiled" into different scanning situations, enabling complex settings to be simply called up when needed. Fujitsu has doubled the profile settings to ten different customizations which is a really good step towards making ScanSnap Manager one of the best applications for scanning I've experienced. This is certainly the most important aspect of making your home and/or work desktop clear and organized: providing more options.
