How does it work?




Tech Specs


BookSnap software enables hi-speed and hi-quality results. The bundled apps are BookSnap software for scanning and BookDrive Editor for image processing

BookSnap Software
BookSnap provides an intuitive interface to the digital cameras connected to your computer, enabling you to change camera settings from within the software.

Smart features include single or dual camera selection (in dual camera mode both left and right pages are captured simultaneously to produce two separate images) and a time-lapse auto-scan mode that triggers the camera(s) to shoot at pre-defined intervals.

BookSnap works seamlessly with a wide range of cameras from Canon (see below).

Instant Image Adjustments

After the page is scanned and rendered on screen, the software can automatically rotate, crop and perform other image adjustments as desired. For example, the dimensions of the scanned image can be set to the physical page size (such as letter or B5) and file size can be altered to the selected DPI, ready for distribution.


Time-lapse Auto Scanning

BookSnap's time-lapse auto-scan mode eliminates the need for manually triggering a scan for each page of a book. Pages can be scanned at pre-defined intervals so that scanning large books is as simple as turning the page.



BookDrive Editor

BookDrive Editor is for when you want to further improve the already great-looking scanned pages. Sometimes It is needed if you're thinking of distributing the images or archiving your book collection at their greatest quality. You will find all you need in the BookDrive Editor that provides robust image processing capabilities wrapped in an intuitive interface. In a nutshell, this program enables hi-speed and hi-quality results.

BookDrive Editor performs various enhancements to all the images quickly.
