What is the Capture Tool and how do I use it?

The Capture Tool is installed by default when you install the scanner driver. 

With the Capture Tool you can perform simple scans and view the scanned images. In addition, it helps you complete your scan at the rated scanner speed.

The following procedure describes how to start a simple scan. Before you begin, make sure the scanner is powered on.

  • Select Start>Programs>IRIS IRIScan Pro scanner>Capture Tool.
    The Select Scanner Model dialog box will be displayed.

  • Type your desired folder name and file name in the File Path box.
    The default path is C:\MyScan\Image.
  • Click the Setup button or choose Setup from the File menu to prompt the Scanner Properties dialog box.
