Scanner recommendations?

I am looking for recommendations for a good smaller-sized scanner (11 x 14 size or even less) that is Mac-friendly. I would be using it primarily to scan black and white ink illustrations in as high a resolution as possible.

Re: Scanner recommendations?

Pretty much any flatbed scanner these days should work great for what you need, and are almost universally Mac compatible (those that aren't out of the box will usually work with the third-party Vuescan software). I'd look at Canon, and check Amazon for reviews. Good luck!
There is no cheating in art. Any method that accomplishes your goal is the right one.

I think you can choose INKJET or LASER printer. These are less costly.They can helps in easily print from your websites.

Re: Scanner recommendations?

Most scanners these days use cis technology (contact image sensor), they work well as long as the paper is fully in contact with the glass. Slight blurring of your image can occur if its not. Other scanners that usually cost a little more use different technology, ccd (charge coupled device). I understand this is similar to how a digital camera works and avoids the blurring problem.

Personally I own the canon lide 220 (cis) and love it. I always make sure to press down on the lid when scanning just to be sure.
