Review:

If you're wondering how grayscale differs from halftone, or whether you can tell the difference between an image scanned at 600 dots per inch (dpi) and one scanned at 300 dpi, the Hewlett-Packard Official Scanner Handbook will answer all your questions. This handbook shows you how to get the most out of your scanner by untangling jargon and helping you perform complicated tasks professionally.

The features and capabilities of various scanners are examined in language the layperson can understand. Even though the book mentions only HP hardware products by name, much of the advice presented applies just as well to other manufacturers' products.

A segment of the book tackles the question, "What do we do now?" It contains ideas for a series of scanner projects, including custom paperweights, mobiles, greeting cards, T-shirts, and tons more. These are real scissors-and-glue craft projects (with scanners and printers thrown into the mix) that would suit any adult-and-kid duo perfectly on the proverbial rainy day. --David Wall
