I need scanner help people.
I have a Mac running Leopard and I need a scanner that is going to give me some options.
I have an all-in-one HP that I am using now but the thing doesn’t give me any options.
When I scan in as black and white my lines looked all jagged…I used to use b&w scans on my old scanner that worked on my PC but does not work on my mac.
I can use a color scan but that looks all grayed out…I also think there is some crap on the underside of the glass on my scanner and I don’t have time to take it apart and clean it…IT’S A NEW SCANNER FOR PETE’S SAKE…and I ordered it online so it will cost me as much shipping to send it back as the thing costs.
So…Help please…so I can get some new comics up that don’t look like pooooop.
Scanner: HP Photosmart C4180 All-In-One
Driver: C4100 Series HP Mac Drivers
System Version: Mac OS X 10.5 (9A581)
Kernel Version: Darwin 9.0.0
Model Identifier: Macmini1,1
Processor Name: Intel Core Duo

Software: Photoshop CS3
Importing image through HP Scan Pro (Twain)
I’ve tried b&w 1 bit and I get a real jagged edge…on my old scanner using Windows with CS3 and HP (Twain) and default setting it was not nearly so.
I’ve scanned at Millions of colors at 300 dpi (all my scans are 300dpi by the way) and everything comes in with a slightly blue tint. Not a big deal because I can desaturate in Photoshop…just annoying. But everything is fuzzy and more towards a gray tone than black…which I can adjust using levels in Photoshop…but then it get’s jagged again once I get to the right levels.
