Solved!

Is it possible to take multiple scans from one page in one go?

HP Recommended

My old scanner used to let me select several marquees around different parts of a page and upon pressing scan, the software would save several images in one go - thus meaning I didn't have to draw a marquee, scan, save and repeat but instead I used to draw several marquees, scan all at once and then save all images (separately).

 

I have just bought a HP Envy 5532. Is there any scanning software that will let me do this as I used to with my Epson scanner?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

Cheers,

 

Toby

Hi @TobyParnell 

 

Although I rather not be the bearer of bad news, I couldn't have your inquiry go unanswered. The feature you are looking for is called 'detect seperate items'. With this feature you can, as you explained, put multiple photos on the glass and the software will detect each separate item and save them separately. The older software used to do this, and frankly I am not sure why the newer versions do not.

 

I know it seems like a step backwards, but I am sure HP has a method to their madness! It seems to me that over the years the software has become more simple, less options equals easier to use. Maybe the intention is to make the software easier to use. I can't speak for HP, only for myself, but I understand how not having this ability can slow down your scanning process and tasks.

 

You are welcome to submit your feedback here if you would like. It might be the best way to let HP know what their customers want! :smileyhappy:   questions or feedback

Hi Toby,

 

The version of scanning software that accompanies the HP Envy 5520 should support this.   Once you do the scan and see the preview of your image, there is a Crop option over on the right hand side menu.   In the drop-down box, change this from "Original" to "Selection".    Now draw a marquee over the area you wish to save.   Under the Crop drop-down box is an icon that allows you to add the selection as a new image.   Click this, and notice that it creates a new image with the selected area.    You can repeat these steps for as many regions as you want to create on the scanned image, all without having to rescan the page each time.

 

Hope this helps!
