[bksvol-discuss] Re: Scanning questions - paperback vs hardcover

You know, I don't really notice much difference in scanning paper or 
hard-backed books. For me, I think it really depends on the quality of the 
print, and the type of paper that is used. Fortunately, with a few setting 
changes, I can make both types of book scan quite well.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Scanning questions - paperback vs hardcover


Which books tend to scan better - paperbacks or hardbacks?  I'm
sure there are a lot of factors.  I'm curious as to which tend to
yield the best quality when you OCR the scanned pages.

And - which are easier to actually scan?  Paperbacks or
hardbacks?  Does the size of the book (thickness and page
dimensions) make a big difference in ease of scanning?  Or are
there other things to look for if you have a choice between
multiple versions of the same title?

Thanks all!
