How to Perform Book Correction Using the SV600

With the launch of the new ScanSnap SV600, we introduced more features in order to take your document imaging scanning to the next level. As with any new product, we received countless questions about the scanner and some of the new and innovative functionality now at a user’s disposal. Of these, the topic we heard confusion about the most centered on the book correction feature.

This feature is meant to correct any distortion caused by the curvature of an open book. There are a couple of tactics you may employ to help with this on your own, but if after scanning you still want a flatter-looking image, this function is always there to use. One way to help on your own is to hold the pages of a bound book down with your fingers during the scanning process. When you use this method your fingers will become part of the scanned image. You may be wondering, “why would I want my fingers included in my scanned image?” The answer is simple – we know you don’t and anticipated that. Perhaps the coolest feature included in the SV600 software is fingertip removal. Yes, you read that right. In the event it is necessary to manually hold pages down, you can revisit the image (post-scan) and select your fingers for removal, and the magic of the software handles the rest.

We received so many questions in the last month regarding how to properly use these features we decided to make a video how-to.

Check out the video below to learn how to get the best possible scanned images out of the ScanSnap SV600.
