Learn how to scan multiple original items at one time with IJ Scan Utility for Windows.


You can scan two or more photos (small items) placed on the platen at one time and save each image individually.

 The following types of items may not be scanned correctly. In that case, adjust the cropping frames (scan areas) in whole image view of ScanGear (scanner driver), and then scan again.

  • Photos with a whitish background

  • Items printed on white paper, hand-written text, business cards, and other unclear items

  • Thin items

  • Thick items

In the Settings dialog box, set Original Size to Auto scan and scan.

 The screens for scanning with favorite settings are used as examples in the following descriptions.

  1. Place the item on the platen.

  2. Start IJ Scan Utility.

  3. Select Settings icon Settings....

    The Settings dialog box appears.

  5. Select Source Type according to the items to be scanned.

  6. Select Auto scan for Original Size, then select OK.

    The IJ Scan Utility main screen appears.

     Once settings are made in the Settings dialog box, the same settings can be used for scanning from the next time.

     In the Settings dialog box, specify image processing settings such as slant correction, set where to save the scanned images, and more, as needed.
