Canon IJ Scanner crops images.


I have a canon ij device. I am scanning family photos and old letters. It crops everything. No matter what size. I have to mess around with where i place the document so its not too close to the edges. But it still crops.


How do i get the machine to scan the full page that i am scanning?

machine:  Canon CanoScan 9000F MKII Photo



It sounds like you might be using a predefined scan area or might have set the area to something less that the entire platten.

i put the option to scan the full platen, and it still chops up the image.
