Frequently Asked Questions
Scanning creates a new image and inserts it into the WiseImage document. WiseImage uses the WiseScan LE tool. WiseScan, an advanced module designed to work with large-format monochrome and colour scanners. With the practical scan control dialog that presents compactly all WiseScan LE settings the user can quickly and easily define settings and start scanning.
Working with Directly Supported Scanners
In the Direct Support Mode WiseScan LE performs scanning with the use of the built-in scanner functionality (dynamic threshold, background suppression, half-tone transfer, etc.), and are executed in real-time. WiseScan LE controls the scanner on the hardware level – this method is the most efficient when producing high quality images. Gamma curves editing and manipulation helps to scan images of poor quality with colour reproduction defects or change colour profile of these images. The user selects modes and parameters, and the scanner processor executes processing runtime and transfers the results to a workstation.
Direct support helps to improve the quality of scanning images and speeds up the scanning process. It is highly suitable for difficult sepias and blueprints and other kinds of similar drawings with background defects. Support for a linear and adapting palette and palette classification speeds up the process of scanning and preparing GIS maps and plans.
Working with TWAIN Scanners
WiseScan LE scan supports TWAIN API for working with TWAIN compatible scanners. In this mode WiseScan LE simply carries out fast image output and post processing; it has none of the advanced features as in the direct support mode.
