Easy Scan Parameters

On the Parameters tab, you can set the scanned file's parameters, such as resolution and format. You can select from a number of options for each parameter.

There are predefined parameters, but you can also create your own parameters.

All parameters are dependent on the particular printing device type. Therefore, some values might not be available.

Predefined Easy Scan Parameters

Some parameters (e.g. resolution, color) significantly influence the scanned file's size. For example, a combination of higher resolution and full color will dramatically increase the file size.

You can allow users to change their scan settings from the terminal screen.

Changing the resolution on the terminal on OSA 4.0

To do this, you have to modify the settings of the particular parameter on the Parameters tab on the Easy Scan action node properties panel. Open the parameter properties panel, uncheck the Prohibit change of value option (checked by default) and Save.
