asked on

what dpi setting should be selected when scanning a document to PDF file?

Hello Everyone,

         When using HP Printer Assistant for HP Deskjet 2543, I am wondering what the desired dpi setting should be when scanning a document to PDF file.  The default setting is 200 dpi.  I wish to scan documents and save them as PDF files, copy the contents of each PDF file, and paste them into WordPress.   Seeing that these are text documents, I think I should select the Output type as either Greyscale or Black and White as opposed to Color.   Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong on that part.

           Any feedback given to this question will be appreciated.

           Thank you

           George

Hello Everyone,

        Thank you for your suggestions.  At this point, I have decided to upgrade my hardware by purchasing a printer/scanner/copier which supports an automatic document feeder as indicated with one of my previously closed post.  In the meantime, I believe I will experiment with my HP Deskjet 2543 that only has a flatbed in order to get a better idea about the dpi settings and its impact upon the resolution of a scanned text document.  

          Once again, thanks again everyone for your help : - )  I will create a new post if any further questions or concerns should come up.

Hi George,
That is an excellent decision to buy a scanner with an ADF. And also a good idea to experiment with DPI (and other settings) on your 2543. Regards, Joe
