Detailed Features

Scanning in style

Just 38mm thick, the extraordinarily slender CanoScan LiDE 25 is the obvious choice for the uncluttered desk. Because of LiDE technology’s tiny appetite for power, it does not require any clumsy power cords - a single USB cable connected to your computer is the only lead you’ll ever need.

Despite its diminutive size, the LiDE 25 is big on resolution. Whether you are scanning documents or photos, the 1200 x 2400dpi¹ and 48 bit colour depth specification accurately reproduces every fine detail and subtle shade. Your pin sharp results will be suitable for enlargements and post-scan image editing.

Straight to PDF

A ‘Scan to PDF’ function scans documents straight to PDF (Portable Document Format), speeding up your work flow and doing away with the need for extra conversion software. A floating palette of PDF pages is created, which can be arranged or ordered at will. Text is automatically embedded in PDF files at time of scanning, allowing editing and searching.

Because not everything you need to scan comes in a convenient size, the LiDE 25 incorporates an innovative double hinged Z-lid. The lid keeps an even pressure on whatever you place on the glass, making it ideal for scanning thick documents, magazines and books - even small packages.

Canon’s QARE Level 3 is your on-board photo print correction system. Dust and scratches are automatically detected and corrected, saving hours of manual retouching. Faded colour, excessive graininess and poor exposure can also be corrected.

Multiple photos in one scan

LiDE 25’s fast and convenient Multi-Photo Mode² creates individual automatically cropped files from a single scan pass of up to 10 separate photos, business cards or other originals. It even de-skews images automatically, saving precious time that would otherwise be spent carefully aligning photos on the glass prior to scanning.

Software supplied includes ArcSoft PhotoStudio image editing and OmniPage SE OCR. To help keep you organised, CanoScan Toolbox sits always-at-the-ready on your desktop, allowing you to customise the three EZ-buttons for common functions, such as copying, scanning direct to e-mail and straight to PDF.

¹ Optical resolution is a measure of maximum hardware sampling resolution, based on the ISO 14473 standard.
² Originals must be rectangular and placed minimum 1cm apart. Deskew feature corrects up to 10 degree slant
