Thanks for finalizing that clarification, Stan. I think the awareness
of what the "image" setting is was just starting to dawn, only having
had the program a week. I am definitely going to try that.
I also like your workflow idea. Unfortunately, the FS2710 has no
batch scan function, so I have to feed 'em one at a time. However,
for raw files, I could dispense with the Preview and cut the time by
about half, right? Or is the Preview necessary for the scanner to
evaluate the image?
