Creating Student Web Portfolios

Scanner Controls

You can save lots of time by having the scanner set to the proper dpi, 72, and to produce the right size scan, most images I post are not more than 3 to 4 inches high. You may have each student scan their work to their own folder or have a student who finishes a project early scan the classes last project.


The scanner controls shown below come with a UMAX scanner. (The controls for your scanner's software may vary but you should still be able to set them accordingly.)


The dpi is set to 72, the standard for web graphics.

The actual drawing being scanned is 12 inches high. Setting the controls to 30% yields an image that is 4 inches high, just high enough for most computer screens.
