Chapter 1. Introduction

Skanlite is a simple image scanning application that does nothing more than scan and save images. Skanlite can open a save dialog for every image scanned or save the images immediately in a specified folder with auto-generated names and format. The user can also choose to show the scanned image before saving.

Skanlite can save images in all the formats supported by Qt™. For example the following formats:

  • png (8 and 16 bits per color)

  • jpeg, jpg, jpeg 2000

  • bmp


You can check the status of your scanner support from the SANE project website through the Supported Devices page on the SANE website.
