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 KDE. For example the following formats:

  • png (8 and 16 bits per color)

  • jpeg, jpg, jpeg 2000

  • bmp
