The number of bits used to define the shade or color of each pixel in an image. A 1-bit image is black and white. An 8-bit grayscale image provides 256 shades of gray. An 8-bit color image provides 256 indexed colors and is associated with a specific palette or color table. A 24-bit image provides over 16 million colors. The greater the bit depth, the larger the size of the saved file. See also file size.
A type of black-and-white, gray, or color image or picture made up of a matrix of individual pixels or dots. Often referred to as raster, raster bitmap, or raster image.
Black & white raster bitmaps contain only black pixels and white pixels, no colors or shades of gray. Each pixel represents one bit.
The Black & White Threshold tool lets you change the dividing point for black-and-white pixels in an image that uses the Black & White Bitmap (raster) output type. All pixels below the threshold will be output as black, and all pixels above the threshold will be output as white.

A palette or color table that contains the pixel colors present in an image.
The original document or picture to be scanned.
The file that is generated by the scanning process.
The actual height and width of an image when saved. You will not see the size changes to your image in the Preview area since image size affects only the final scan.
The type of file that is generated during the scanning process. Output type reveals the bit depth of the image.
The smallest element (picture element) that can be assigned an independent color and intensity and can be displayed on a computer screen. Pixels are square dots arranged in a grid pattern to make up the images displayed on the screen.
A subset of the color look-up table that establishes the colors that can be displayed on the monitor at a particular time. The only color depth that allows multiple palettes is the 256 (or 8-bit) color setting for your monitor. At a color depth of 256 colors, each program (or even each individual image used or edited in a program) can have a different color palette.
The flashing that occurs when your monitor is set to a color depth of 256 colors and you switch programs. When you switch programs, the palette of the active program becomes the system palette, and all other programs redraw themselves as accurately as possible with the new colors.
Portable Document Format (PDF) format. Adobe Acrobat files use this format.
Apple's proprietary image file format that is used by the Mac OS. Designed for the screen, this format is best used for color images that will not be printed. Images saved as PICT files are smaller in size than images saved as a TIFF files.

An energy conservation method that reduces power consumption when the scanner is idle for a period of time.
Pixels Per Inch. A measurement of resolution for monitors and scanners where the individual element is a square pixel.
A feature that displays a scanned image so you can view it in the scanning software. You can then select an area to be saved; make adjustments to the tone, color, and size; and save the final image.
The rectangular area in the software where the scanned image is displayed.
Refers to your preferred method of using the scanner. The scanning software automatically saves certain preferences, such as the location of toolbars and the destination of a scan, that it detects during normal use of the scanner. Some preferences are restored each time the scanner is used, while others are maintained only throughout a scanning session.
A measurement of the number of dots per inch (dpi) the printer is capable of printing. Typical laser printers have resolutions of 600 dpi, typical ink printers have resolutions of 300 dpi for photographs and 600 dpi for text, while imagesetters have resolutions of 1200 or 2400 dpi. The more dots per inch, the smoother the output and the greater the number of grayscale levels and colors the device can describe.
The product tour provides an overview of the scanners capabilities and how scanning tasks are completed. It appears each time the scanning software starts, unless it is specifically disabled. It is also available in the Help menu.
A type of black and white, gray, or color image or picture made up of a matrix of individual pixels or dots. This is also referred to as a bitmap.
The measure of how many dots per inch (dpi) are scanned, displayed, or printed. The greater the dpi, the greater the amount of detail that is visible, and the larger the file size. The final output device (monitor, printer) for a scanned image determines the resolution of the image. For example, if you scan a picture at 600 dpi (the optimum) and your printer is capable of printing at only 300 dpi, the printed image will be no more than 300 dpi.
An industry-standard communications protocol for sending instructions to hardware (such as a scanner) and receiving image data back from them. If you are using a program that supports TWAIN, you can start the HP Precisionscan Pro software directly from that program.
A method of stretching or shrinking an image proportionately in both the vertical and horizontal directions.
