Adjusting Cropping Frames in the Image Stitch Window

"Cropping" is the act of selecting the area you want to keep in an image and discarding the rest when scanning it.

In the Image Stitch window, you can specify a cropping frame on the image displayed in the Preview area.


  • Refer to "Adjusting Cropping Frames (ScanGear)" for your model from Home of the Online Manual for how to adjust cropping frames with ScanGear (scanner driver).

When you perform a scan, the image in the area specified with the cropping frame will be scanned.
