Help for Simply Calenders

Scanning

Simply Calenders allows you to scan in pictures directly if you have a TWAIN compliant scanner available.

These Functions are disabled if no scanner source is available.

Simply Calenders supports Line Art, 16 colour , 256 colour and 24 bit colour scanning on most TWAIN compatible scanners.


If the original picture is large then it is preferable to scan at a low resolution (say 100 dpi).

Pictures greater than 4 Mpixels are not supported by Simply Calenders, (that is 2048 x 2048 pixels or similar).


Using the integrated image editor (“Darkroom”), you can scan, edit pictures and save  to a file (JPG, BMP, TIFF, RLE, GIF or PNG).

  • Select Image Editor from Pictures menu then Scan from File menu within “The Darkroom”.

You can also scan pictures directly  by selecting Pictures, Add/Edit… in main window

  • Select the month where the picture is to be used from the dropdown box., then click Scan to File.
  • Enter a new filename (JPG/BMP) for the scanned picture in the subsequent Save dialog.
  • The scanner (TWAIN) interface should then open.
  • Place the picture in your scanner and scan using your scanner TWAIN interface.
  • Once the scan is complete, the picture will be saved and linked to the current calendar.
