Alternative to TR4520 capable of scanning to a PNG

pwrichcreek

I'm using a CANON TR4520 printer. I use a utility provided by CANON to scan documents to a PDF, but it can't scan to a PNG file. I'm told that isn't a flaw of the utility, but rather the TR4520 doesn't support that function. Does anyone know of a CANON printer similar to the TR4520 in terms of price and capability (except for the absence of PNG capability)?

 

TIA.

Hi Patrick,

 

Place you item face down on the scan glass I had been loading the document into the multi-page feeder, I guess because that's what I always did for pdf.

 

Thanks for you help.
