CanoScan 9000F

 I would like to write some software to automate certain tasks with the CanoScan 9000F.


Is there any way to have any API or scripting access to ScanGear?

Failing that, is there any information on TWAIN for this particular scanner so I can program access to the various functions?


For example, I might want it to preview the image, then automatically detect the relevant region and correct for rotation and do a final scan with specific settings based on what type of image I think it is. (And I could, for example, be using images with bar-codes that specify the type of image).

Hello isaacl.


Unfortunately, we can only advise that scanner is used with the TWAIN driver that is included with the unit. 


The Scangear interface that can be accessed for the scanner will allow you to preview images and select your desired portion before making a final scan.  However, there is no such option to automatically select a specific region of an image for adjustment.  This would have to be done manually.
