Setting size of scan

HP Office Jet 3830
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Can the scan bed be set to only scan a 6x8" picture instead of the entire bed size?

Setting size of scan

@busybobby 

 

The short answer is "No, the scan bed cannot be set to this custom scan size."

 

The longer answer:

If you have installed the Full Feature Software for your printer,

The following "subset" software can be used to "Auto Detect Size" to extract the boundaries of your scanned item (document or image).

 

Link / Download:  HP Scan Extended 

Download, save, and install to use.  Exceptional free HP scan program:  HP Scan Extended features include (and are not limited to): Single, Multiple scans, Image and PDF scans, Email as PDF / JPEG, Source selection, Page Size choices include Auto-Detect (extracts image / document boundary).  May include OCR (Save as Editable Text).

 

NOTES

  • HPSE is an older subset of the printer software; features are very similar to scan software included in 2015 or newer Full Feature Software packages.
  • If you have the newer version of the scan software inside your Full Feature Software, use that: Printer Assistant shortcut icon on Desktop (named for printer) > Scan a document or image (wording varies).
  • Although the HPSE program works as a separate program, HPSE is dependent on the infrastructure provided by the printer software. The Full Feature Software for your printer should be installed before installing HPSE.
  • OPTIONAL: Add HP Scan Extended shortcut to Taskbar / Send to Desktop / Pin to Start
    • Open File Explorer > Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP Scan Extended\bin
    • Right-Click HPScan.exe > Select Pin to Taskbar / Send to Desktop / Pin to Start

General Example:

HP_Scan_Extended_Shortcut_1.JPGHP_Scan_Extended_Shortcut_1.

 

Additional scan software "worth a look":

Link and Download  NAPS2 

NOTES

  • Not another PDF Scanner – free program scans PDF files and image(s) as .jpeg or PDF file(s).
  • Includes an OCR feature – may need Ghostscript add-on (See NAPS2 forum entry)
  • Read the Support pages for information
  • Download, save, and install the NAPS2 software to use.

HP Scan and Capture

Windows Store - Requires Windows 8 or higher

 

HP Printers - Using the HP Smart App (Windows 10)

 

Embedded Web Server (EWS) Webscan

If the printer is on the network,

  • Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar
  • Tab Scan > Webscan(Does not require installed printer software)
