Scanned image is skewed

  Yimbo 00:09 05 Oct 04

When scanning a business card on my Canon Lide 80, the image always comes out skewed - no matter how carefully I place the card on the glass. Why would this be - and how do I get it straight - please!

most scanners software have a preview facility does yours not?

if u use xp use the scanner wizard and see if that corrects the problem.

also make sure ur scaner is on a stable surface,my old pc used to rock the table (very old n rattly) and all our images where blurred till we moved the scanner to another unit away from the tower.

Place a narrow piece of stiff card along the edge of the scanner window (make sure it`s straight edge card), and place your item to be scanned up against it. Should do the trick. I have to do that anyway cos my Epson scanner doesn`t scan right to the edge, so I use the card strip as a spacer.
Hope this helps :)
