The present paper proposes three new solutions to provide an enhanced and unique

user experience for document scanning.

Some printers have larger control panels and thus support cropping of scanner output

using an on-device preview feature. Some printers, however, may not be able to access

such an on-device scan cropping feature, such as due to control panel limitations, such

as limited screen space, by way of example.

In this paper, a simple, unique and cost effective approach to enhancing scan user

experiences is proposed to enable users to:

- Scan a part (sub-area) of an input print media

- Scan multiple parts of a print media to generate multiple discrete scan image files

- Scan multiple documents placed in a scan bed or automatic document feeder

(ADF) to multiple discrete scan image files
