Once Your Image is in Photoshop
- Login to the computer that has the Scanner
- Set Photoshop to open in 32 bit mode:
- With one hand, hold down the ⌘ and R keys on the keyboard.
- While holding down those keys, click on the Photoshop icon in your dock. This will show you the icon for the Photoshop application.
- While the application is selected, press both the ⌘ and i keys on the keyboard. This will open the "Get Info" window for Photoshop.
- At the bottom of the "General Information," check the box for "Open in 32 bit mode."
- Place your image face down on the scanner glass (Do not put your image against the back edge of the glass).
- Launch Photoshop
- In Photoshop, go to the File menu and choose Import > CanoScan (LiDE 210 or 4400F).
This will open the Canon scanner software.
- If you're in Simple Mode, switch to Advanced Mode
- Find and click on the button for "Advanced Mode"
- Preview what's on the glass by clicking the "Preview" button. (sometimes it will have to calibrate or adjust the lamp - let it do this.
- The dotted lines represent what will be the edges of your image. Adjust the dotted lines where you want them to be. This is done by clicking on the lines and dragging. If there is no dotted line, just click and drag a box with the mouse. Don't worry if your image is rotated incorrectly.
- There are 3 setting that you must set before you scan.
- Set the Color Mode dropdown menu to "Grayscale"
- Change the "Units" dropdown menu from "inches" to "pixels"
- Change the "Output Settings" so that the LARGER of the two dimension (width or height) is 1200 pixels. Press the enter key (the number will be rounded to the nearest possible).
- Now click the Scan button
- Once the image is scanned, it will open in Photoshop.
- Change the Mode to RGB color
- Image Menu > Mode > RGB Color
- Orient your image appropriately
- Image Menu > Image Rotation > (Whatever applies to your image)
- If needed, adjust the brightness and contrast
Crop or straighten out your image appropriately using the Crop Tool
Save your image as P1_(lastname first inital).psd
- Image Menu > Adjustments > Brightness Coontrast (check "Use Legacy")
Log out and continue working on your project at your own computer.
- For example, if Jack Bauer was in class he'd name it: P1_ bauerj.psd
Remember, you need to create an outline layer that is transparent except for where the black line are - just like you did in the Birds exercise [Refer to Project 1, pt.2].
