Canon's scanning application, CapturePerfect, includes many image processing functions, MultiStream support, and other handy features.
When scanning a large document, such as a two-page spread on the flatbed, CapturePerfect can conveniently split the image down the middle and save the two images in separate files. Available file formats are TIFF (single or multi-page), BMP, JPEG, and PDF.
With CapturePerfect you can scan and save documents as searchable PDF files, and prepare a batch of documents for immediate e-mail delivery.
For quick and easy visual confirmation of document images, CapturePerfect can display thumbnail images as well as split-screen views.
