Optimately, your sheet music will be scanned in letter format (=210mmx297mm), 300 dpi and black-and-white (1 bit monochrome). A highler or lower resolution can affect the result of the scanning. Preferably you'll save your scanned data as .bmp or .tiff. One scanned page equals about 1MB.
Downloaded sheet music & handwritten notes
Most downloaded pictures feature a lower resolution than the required 300 dpi, thus proving their scanning or importing rather difficult. We recommend your using original sheet music.
Most scanning programmes cannot process handwritten notes. Please avoid digitizing handwritten notes by FORTE Scan or SharpEye Music Reader.
