Flatbed scanner ( Scan Type )

Oct 11, 2017 11:11AM PDT

I'm using an Epson XP-610 combination printer/scanner.
When copying a document in ( Print image matching II tiff )
which is the only tiff setting that will allow me to fax using windows fax and scan I end up getting two copies of the document one standard size and one compacted and condensed size not suited to be faxed. What am I doing wrong? I end up faxing twice the amount of pages needed
and if I scan in tiff only the fax only sends blank pages...

Answer
Why Use .tiff? I Scan All Documents as PDF
Oct 11, 2017 12:08PM PDT

.tiff files are usually extremely large and the large size of the file could be causing the problem. Why not scan the file as a pdf, which should work fine for regular documents, and then FAX the page normally? I've got an EPSON XP-830 and it seems workable here but this printer has FAX ability also.

Hope this helps.

Faxing in PDF instead of tiff
Oct 12, 2017 7:06AM PDT

tiff is the only file type that ( windows fax and scan ) will allow. When I try to send
a fax in PDF it gives me a message that it is in the wrong file format.

Sorry, Since I Didn't Use "Windows FAX and Scan" on Win7...

I don't know much about that particular program. Instead, we used a different online FAX program to send any type of file we want. (Of course we had a full FAX machine for most of our needs.) Since your EPSON scanner should be able to save the picture as any type of tile, have you tried some of the the other FAX programs available? Heck, there are free online FAX services that work fine. Scan your document to a PDF or any other type of file, then send it online.

Hope this helps.
