Learn how to scan multiple original items on the platen (scanner glass) with IJ Scan Utility Lite.


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 (selection boxes; scan areas) in the screen displayed by clicking Driver in the IJ Scan Utility Lite main screen, 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, 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 Lite.

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

    The IJ Scan Utility Lite main screen appears.

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

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