Quick-and-Easy High-Quality Scanning with Epson-brand Scanners

Note: This is part of a series of Scanning Guides. Start HERE.

Hardware
The Epson Perfection v550 scanner is the sweet spot (170$ on Amazon). Another scanner often mentioned in the same breath is the Epson Perfection v600, however it doesn't offer any useful features or benefits for our purposes.
You will also need a Windows computer for the compatible software.

Placing Your Paper in the Scanner
Do not alight your paper against the edge of the scanner, doing this will cut off the edges of it. Instead place in the center of your scanner, it's okay if it's crooked, you will fix it in editing. If you're scanning a manual, consider removing the staples for a higher quality scan. Also, playing a heavy object, such as a book, on top of your scanner will give it pressure to flatten the paper being scanned for perfect focus.

Software and Settings
Download the "Scanner Driver and Epson Scan Utility" here.
Configure your Epson software to the below settings:


  • Now that you're all set up, press "Scan" on the app.
  • A new window will pop up, make sure Image Format Type is set to "TIFF".
