Outline & Scan App

What is it?

The Brother Outline & Scan App enables you to select part(s) of a hard copy document and scan just those part(s) into a digital file with transparent background. To do this, simply outline with red marker or red pen the part(s) of the document you would like to capture, and then scan the document. The Outline & Scan App removes the unwanted information, creating a digital document with only what you’ve selected.

What is the benefit?
